The cost of tree trimming.
Well there is no straight forward answer. The cost of tree trimming largely depends on the size of your landscape and the amount of trees that require a trim. For our team here at Tree Care of Lafayette a tree trimming estimate is provided after we have completed a walk through your property and have assessed your tree trimming needs. When we conduct an assessment, our skilled arborists are on the lookout for the type of trees that form part of your landscape, where they are located, if there are any safety concerns and how much time is needed to get the trim job done.
Pruning vs. Trimming
Tree trimming is done twice a year whereas pruning is performed annually. It all boils down to the type of plants, trees and shrubs that are growing in your backyard. Both are fantastic landscaping services that yield beautiful and practical results in your outdoor areas. Pruning and trimming have distinct applications and functions, plus different tools are employed. When you prune you basically remove potential safety hazards as opposed to trimming that is done purely for design purposes. Trimming promotes a clean look and if completed properly allows for tree canopies to let some sunshine through - helping other plants in your garden to grow magically.
Safety. Appearance. Health.
We have had many clients in the past asking about the necessity of tree trimming and our team of skilled tree trimmers have decided to outline a few reasons for why tree trimming is a must. Trimming your trees is about safety. Your property can suffer various financial losses if you allow dead or weak branches to roam freely. Another reason is appearance - trimmed trees make your property appear beautiful and alluring. Nothing beats a bask in the sun amongst a well groomed landscape. If done correctly, tree trimming encourages proper growth and ensures that your beloved green friends are perky and healthy.
How we cut.
Before tackling any tree trimming project, the team members here at Tree Care of Lafayette prepares our state of the art trimming tools - checking very carefully that each shear is clean and extra sharp. Our arborists do follow very strict safety guidelines as using an extension ladder on our client’s property can result in injury. We like to work downward and therefore we check that nobody is close to the area we are trimming - the safety of our clients and their assets is our main priority. During the tree trimming process, we make a few cuts - a notch-cut and a relief cut. This way we ensure that no branches split and fall.
