Tree Trimming Versus Tree Pruning


Many people think tree trimming is the same as tree pruning. However, this is far from the truth. While both involve removing unwanted branches and limbs, they have different purposes. Before you hire a tree service expert, it is important to understand the differences.

Tree Trimming

Tree trimming helps trees, shrubs, and hedges grow in a healthy manner. The results are a cleaner look. Generally tree trimming is done for design purposes. Commercial managers often utilize tree trimming to increase the value of their property.

Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is not limited to tree maintenance. You may utilize tree pruning to remove dead branches or roots that could kill the tree. Often, the parts are dead, molding, or broken. Tree trimming is also used to remove potential safety hazards, such as the tree limb growing toward your home.

It is important that you work with an experienced arborist when deciding what work to be done on your trees. Contact Beaver Tree Service to speak with a tree service expert in Beaverton or Medford, Oregon.
