Tree Pruning

Tree Pruning

It’s easy for homeowners to neglect caring for the trees around their homes. Apart from taking down a dead or bothersome tree, we often don’t think about the health and shape of other trees around our home or on our property. 

The truth is, taking proper care of your trees can not only prevent danger. They can beautify your home and lawn and give you that excellent-looking greenery that many homeowners dream of having. The trouble is, unless you’re an arborist, knowing how to care for trees properly is not something most people do. 

At Stockbridge Tree Service, trees are our business. Whether it’s the removal of dead or damaged trees, stump grinding, root removal, or routine maintenance, we have you covered. Part of that business is knowing how to take care of your trees and keep them healthy while also keeping off your home and other buildings or away from power lines and other dangers. 

This doesn’t just apply to big tall trees either. We can handle any type of tree, bush, shrub, or other plant types to keep it in great shape and looking its best. 


How We Help


Tree pruning is about more than just lopping off dead branches. Tree pruning is vital to keeping your trees and shrubs healthy. Tree pruning is more of an exact science than many homeowners think. You have to know how, where, and why you’re trimming the tree in order to do it properly. 

One of the key elements to tree pruning is keeping the tree healthy by removing overgrowth. If tree branches grow out too far, they can rob nutrients from other parts of the tree. In some cases, a tree or shrub will start to grow awkwardly, and this can be a sign of poor health or nutrient deficiency. In these cases, trimming back branches and limbs and keeping the core of the tree healthy can keep it from dying and becoming in danger of falling on your home. 

The same is true for shrubs and smaller plants. In particular, if you’ve got relatively young trees that you’re trying to grow for use in the future, such as fruit trees, proper pruning and maintenance are necessary to ensure they grow into healthy fruit-bearing trees. 

Trees and bushes can even become too heavy to support themselves if not pruned regularly. This raises the risk that a tree may fall. One real danger of not pruning a tree is if the root system is compromised due to water or rot. A tree that is heavier than it should be can easily uproot itself and not only fall but tear up your yard and the ground under your feet. This can lead to a major problem and a huge expense. 

By having your trees pruned regularly, you can not only keep them lighter, but you also have the chance to check them for any underlying issues which may be a problem to the health and safety of your trees as well as your home and property. A little bit of prevention can go a long way in keeping your trees around for a long time and keeping you and your loved ones safe. 

One last thing to consider about tree pruning is that it adds aesthetic value to your trees and bushes. Having a well-manicured tree or bushes around your property greatly improves curb appeal and adds value to your home and property.
