Tree Trimming and Pruning

in Caldwell, Nampa, Meridian, Boise, and Surrounding Area
When it comes to the safety and correct procedures for proper Tree Trimming, We are here for you. We bring in our tree and shrub experts to each job to evaluate the needs of each plant we look at. Sometimes this results in dead or dying limbs being removed from a tree. We will also find occasions that warrant the need to trim back or prune living branches that may pose a dangerous hazard in storms, or is out of compliance with local government code.
Tree safety is often the last thing we think about… until something bad happens. But understanding tree safety and preventing disaster is easier than you might think. We highly recommend regular maintenance to remove dead or dying tree branches. Doing to will reduce the ability of invasive insect species to nest in and destroy the tree, as well as mitigate against dangerous “windsail” effect.

 

WINDSAIL REDUCTION
The right wind, at the right time, and your favorite tree can become a serious danger. Branches within an unruly, overgrown tree can catch strong winds, causing excessive rocking and swaying. This “windsail” effect can be lessened by reducing deadwood and excessive smaller branching, minimizing movement and strain on the tree in the wind, allowing wind to pass through safely and pose less risk of catastrophic breakage.​Proper tree pruning, especially early on, is important, as one of the most common locations for a tree to fail is at the junction of two or more co-dominant stems, because these branches are forced to split the strength of a single branch.
Structural tree problems from included bark can occur naturally, but also can result from prior improper trimming and pruning techniques. “Topping” a tree (lopping off the crown), for example, can easily result in the death of the tree, since the resultant “fingerlings” can cause a breeding ground for disease and insects.Please allow us to give you a free tree safety consultation to discuss the safety, health, and mitigation options for your favorite trees.

DEADWOOD REMOVAL
Without proper maintenance, overgrowth occurs and deadwood can build up, causing dry rot and insect infestation. Removing this inner debris allows a clean, solid barrier of bark to protect the tree against rot, and infestation. The healthier, thinner tree becomes less susceptible to disease, and less of a fire hazard.
