Tree Trimming & Pruning

Maintaining Your Trees’ Vitality, Safety, and Beauty

As most home owners in Kansas City know, pruning and trimming—the acts of strategically removing tree branches—are essential forms of tree maintenance. Every few years, mature landscape trees and shrubs will need to be pruned to promote an ideal shape. Why are pruning and trimming so important to residential trees? For their vitality, safety, and beauty:

  • Vitality: To keep a tree healthy, you need to periodically prune any dead, dying, or damaged wood, including branches that are rubbing together or areas that have been on the receiving end of hungry insects. Trees can also be trimmed to allow more light and air to reach a tree’s canopy or to decrease strain on its trunk and roots.
  • Safety: Pruning dead, dying, or structural unsound branches ensures that they do not fail during heavy winds. At the same time, trees must often be trimmed so they do not grow too close to power lines or interfere with traffic sight-lines.
  • Beauty: Trees can grow in unplanned or unusual ways if left unchecked. It’s very common for Kansas City home owners to prune their trees for aesthetic reasons, removing branches to improve its overall form. Trees can also be trimmed to promote new growth and flower production. And of course some people trim their trees into unique ornamental shapes!

I Can Prune My Own Trees…Right?

Technically yes, but it’s not a very good idea! Whenever possible, you should hire a professional arborist to prune and trim the trees on your residential property. First of all, it takes years of experience and special training to know which branches to remove; you must factor in your goals for pruning as well as the tree’s size, age, and species. Over pruning can have serious consequences for a tree’s health for years! Furthermore, pruning trees can be quite dangerous. The bigger the tree, the higher you have to climb and the more heavy-duty cutting equipment you will need to get the job done. Save yourself the hassle and find a local tree care expert!

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.

  • 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.
