Promote Growth

Regular tree trimming helps promote new growth by eliminating dead or diseased branches, which can otherwise act as parasites and stunt the growth of the tree. By removing these unhealthy branches, your tree will be able to focus its energy on producing new growth, helping it to flourish. Whether your goal is to have a more beautiful tree or to increase your privacy, new growth is a great way to accomplish both!

Increase Air Circulation

Properly pruning your tree can help increase air circulation, which is essential for helping the tree absorb nutrients and water. Allowing for plenty of airflow will also reduce the risk of disease and pests. When moisture becomes trapped around your tree, it can cause big problems quickly. If you’d like to help keep your trees as healthy as possible, regular trimming is an ideal way to increase the circulation of air and keep your tree happy.

Enhance Aesthetics

Tree trimming can help enhance the overall look of your property. By removing dead or overreaching branches, you can improve the appearance of your trees and your landscape. Best of all, tree trimming can do double duty, because it also allows homeowners to shape their trees in a way that complements the look of their homes. Don’t neglect regular tree trimming if you want to boost your curb appeal!

Protect Property

By regularly trimming your tree, you can help protect your home and property from potential damage. Dead or overhanging branches can be hazardous and should be removed to prevent any potential hazards. With annual tree trimming, you don’t have to worry about dangerous branches blowing down during storms, and every homeowner deserves that kind of peace of mind.

Overall, tree trimming is a great way to help your trees flourish. When you regularly trim your trees, you can help them grow, increase air circulation, enhance the aesthetics of your home, and protect your property. Have a question for our team?

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We needed a to have a couple of large trees removed from our yard. Safety Tree Service did a great job. They raked and collected everything and left us with a totally clean backyard. If we ever need any tree services in the future I will definitely contact you again.

  • Safety Tree Service is always on time. They do what they say they are going to do. There is no smoke and mirrors with Safety Tree Service. I only recommend his company to all of my clients because I know he will treat them with respect and care.

  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
