About Our Tree Trimming Services

Tree trimming is essential for maintaining the health and appearance of the trees and shrubs on your property. Trimming improves the overall health of a tree by promoting new growth, improving airflow, and reducing the risk of disease. Regular tree trimming can also increase your property value by making it pleasing to the eye. Hiring a professional service is important as they have the necessary equipment and expertise to safely and efficiently trim any tree.

Knowing the basics of tree trimming, Edmonton, can help you understand why it's needed for your yard. While there are several reasons why tree trimming is used, the most common reasons to hire a tree service company are for these purposes: safety, health, and aesthetics.

Safety: Though tree pruning is used to remove dead branches and keep your property safe, tree trimming can also protect your tree. By avoiding branch overcrowding and reducing the crown, you can prevent future safety concerns with your trees.

Health: The overall health of your tree is vital to avoid decay and death. Promoting healthy trimming may include removing branches too close or rubbing together, thinning the tree crown for airflow improvement, or trimming off some foliage to allow lower limbs more sunlight and prevent die-off.

Curb Appeal: Aesthetics are the most common reason people hire landscaping companies in Edmonton—tree trimming is no exception. Trimming helps shape and give your trees and shrubs a lovely appearance. For example, do you have pines and want that Christmas tree shape in your yard? Our Edmonton tree trimming service will do that!

Different Types of Tree Trimming Services

Tree trimming services play an essential role in maintaining the health and beauty of your landscape. Edmonton tree trimming services include a wide variety of cutting for different tree issues, from the largest trees to the smallest saplings.

Crown Thinning: This involves trimming and technical removal of lateral branches, ensuring the limbs grow evenly spaced without crossing over one another. Sometimes this service must be performed over several years because trimming too many branches at once can kill the tree. This is good for mature trees, young saplings, and diseased trees that can be saved.

Crown Raising: This is usually done with tree pruning services to avoid the tree coming into contact with structures that could be dangerous. This involves removing branches from the lower part of the tree, creating a clearance underneath it. Hazard tree removal will only be needed if the whole tree is deemed to be planted in a dangerous location. Sometimes your team of experts can move the tree if that's the case. This is good for dangerous trees and low-hanging branches like willow trees.

Crown Reduction: This involves removing more than half of the tree foliage by trimming lateral branches until the crown is at its desired size, letting enough sunlight and airflow through for optimum growth. This is good for huge trees with full crowns, such as elm trees and fruit trees.

Difference Between Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning

We often get asked the difference between tree trimming and pruning and which service is needed. Many people don't realize these services are different and use the terms interchangeably. These services are different, with pruning used to remove unneeded limbs or branches and tree trimming used to encourage healthy growth. Understanding the difference in these services is crucial for the overall health of your tree.

Tree trimming promotes shrubs, hedges, and trees to thrive while making the appearance more attractive, especially for commercial properties. Here, specialists often use trimmers, saws, shears, and other specialized tools to promote healthy tree growth. Green shoots are removed during this service, so the tree spends energy on its branches. Trimming occurs twice yearly, especially if blooms and flowers are wanted in early spring.

Tree pruning is about tree maintenance and refers to removing dead or unnecessary branches or roots. Sometimes this is because roots or branches grow in the wrong direction, create obstacles, or become a bigger headache by intruding on utility wires, pipes, and other electrical components. Pruning often uses hand shears or lopping shears as the preferred tools unless the branch is uncommonly thick and needs a saw. Pruning is usually done once a year. Depending on the type of tree, will depend on the season the pruning occurs. For example, dormant trees are typically pruned in winter to prepare for good growth in spring. Tree pruning helps prevent unwanted growth from becoming a bigger problem.

Tree Trimming Edmonton FAQs

Can I Do All the Trimming Myself?

Homeowners can trim most smaller shrubs, depending on the desired outcome. If you want your hedges or shrubs trimmed in a specific pattern or design, then it's a good idea to trust a tree expert who has experience trimming bushes in a particular design.

As for Edmonton tree trimming, we recommend hiring top-rated ISA arborists for the job because property owners can sometimes get a little trim-happy and take too much off a tree, resulting in reducing its health. Nobody wants to end up with a dead tree, which happens when too much trimming or the wrong tree limbs are removed. Replacing a dead tree is expensive, and many city bylaws require a dead tree to be replaced. So stick with expert tree services and Edmonton Arborists who have extensive knowledge of types of pruning and trimming.

Do You Have Any Tree Trimming Tips?

Trimming any tree or shrub yourself risks killing it, but our Alberta arborists love giving homeowners their tree expert advice. Some tips we have about tree trimming are:

  • Only trim branches that are weak and have narrow angles.
  • Trimming and pruning new or young growth is more straightforward, especially if you want to avoid scarring.
  • The ratio of tree height to the living crown should be two-thirds.
  • Be careful how a branch is trimmed; not too long or too close to the trunk to damage it.
  • Never trim large branches by yourself.

It's best to prune or trim your trees during the tree's dormant season. Contact your Edmonton Arborist today so they can let you know when that is!

Along with our Edmonton tree trimming services, our friendly team offers services for yard work and maintenance, including tree planting, tree removal services, tree risk assessment, deep root fertilizing, mulching and landscaping, fruit tree pruning, tree fertilization, snow removal, tree cabling, stump grinding, tree stump removal, storm damage, emergency storm response services, emergency maintenance tree services, and more!

We had a crew from Trusty tree services to come and remove 6, 40 foot aspen trees. They did an awesome job. They were very knowledgeable and very considerate of our property and our neighbours property. They had our yard and neighbours yards totally cleaned up when they were finished. I would highly recommend Trusty Tree Services

We had a crew from Trusty Tree Services trim three trees on our property a few weeks ago, sorry for the late review. Couldn't be happier with the whole process. From the estimate to the final clean up, everything went very well. I contacted other companies for estimates, didn't even get a call back. Thanks again Trusty Tree for a great job!

Trusty Tree Services came out and pruned our Amur Cherry tree in Fort Saskatchewan and did a great job. The technicians were knowledgeable and gave me tips on how to better take care of our tree.

We had an amazing experience with Trusty Tree. They gave a prompt estimate for some very difficult trees in our campground. They arrived on time and began work immediately. Their expertise shone through as they brought down the trees on point! Friendly, informative, professional and outstanding workmanship. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Shout out to Colton, Joe and Adrian - great work!

We had Trusty Tree out this year to shape and thin 4 trees and 3 Mugo Pine shrubs. I was impressed with a quick appt for the quote and then quick response for booking. Our trees were pruned earlier in the season as this was the recommended timeframe, and the Mugo Pine shrubs pruned later in the spring after the new growth appeared. I'm pleased with the crew that came out, they were polite, professional and experienced. We are happy with how our trees and shrubs look and feel the price was fair. We would definitely recommend Trusty Tree and will have them back in the future. Thanks for taking extra time with us to talk about proper pruning too!

I am a new widow and my yard work is so overwhelming, I called Trusty tree to come over and give me a quote. Because my husband who has slways been in love with taking great care of our home,has passed I am here to do it alone.Trusty tree are the most professional people I dealt with..And they actually had the most professional quote,they took pictures of my Tree to elaborate on what needed to be done,and explained why everything had to be done in a certain way...after 3 other companies coming out I realized that Trusty Trees quote was extremely fair. So when the Trusty Tree crew arrived to prune my beloved tree, they were ready, and really understood the sentimental value of my tree that my late husband and I used to sit under every night. The crew members Joe and Shane collaborated beautifully brought down the required amount of my tree..They had a fantastic chipper on site and they also cleaned up the yard so beautifully after the cutting was done...If anyone reads this review,please understand how much that tree meant to me and my late husband. Joe and Shane gave it a loving and caring trim, and they where not only hard working but very informative of the process,and very just great guys,they included their sense of humor to make the trimming process easier on me. THEY were so compasionate and understanding . I thank them for that..... If you are thinking of pruning your gorgeous beloved tree, Trusty Tree has got be your only choice. THESE GUYS ARE THE BEST!!! My name is Christine and if anyone wants to contact me about what a great job this crew did..please do!!!

This was the second time I've used this company for mature tree removal. This time 4 fully grown columnar Aspen trees located close to fencing, a deck and between 2 houses were successfully removed with no damage to the aforementioned structures but also nearby concrete curbing. Work was done as scheduled, quickly and neatly. Very satisfied with the work.

I look for three things when it comes to service: 1) friendly attitude, 2) timeliness, and 3) efficiency. The crew were excellent in all three scores. It was great to see a clean truck, maintained gear, and use of personal protective equipment as well. This is a great choice for tree care. Done in less than an hour!!!

When Trevor came to quote my yard at my new house, he helped me identify all the trees and shrubs, and clearly explained what work needed to be done. When the day came to do the work, Kolton and Carl were friendly and also walked me through what they were doing and why (I'm interested in these things and was asking questions). They did their best to save my cherry that is infected with black knot. Looking forward to having them come back to continue tree maintenance in the future.

We had a tree in our yard that had died a few years earlier and wasn’t sure who to call. We called Sunstar who recommended Trusty Tree to us. Trevor came out to look at our tree. We didn’t realize we had another Tree that was diseased. He sent us a quote very quickly. He was able to book a time for tree removal, stump grinding, as well as planting our new trees. The project was done in the timeline provided. The crews showed up on time or earlier than expected which was amazing! They were very professional. I would hire Trusty Tree again!
