Tree Cutting

Shaping Trees for Greater Aesthetics

Tree trimming, also known as tree cutting, is the process of shaping your trees to meet a desired look and shape. It is not the same as tree pruning.
The Purpose of Tree Trimming
Trimming a tree has a different purpose than pruning a tree. Trimming is primarily done for aesthetic or appearance reasons. Limbs will be removed to keep the tree looking tidy or in a specific shape. Pruning is done for the health of the tree rather than its appearance.

Here is when tree trimming is appropriate:

N
Tree shaping or appearance.
N
Limbs pose a threat to a building in a storm.
N
Obstructive tree branches and limbs.

Trimming More
Than Trees

Our tree trimming services are used for more than just your typical tree. They are also perfect for shrubs, bushes, and hedges. These types of plants also require regular trimming and pruning.

We pride ourselves on knowing how to safely and accurately trim trees and plants in South South Florida.

Trees of All Types

No matter what type of trees you have on your property, our team is able to trim them to meet your landscaping aesthetics. We have a deep understanding of local, native trees, including sea grape, cabbage palm, mahogany, bald cypress, southern red cedar, live oak, southern magnolia, and more!

Shrubs

Shrubs resemble trees in that they are woody plants, but they are typically smaller. Their closely-knit stems or little branches can run along the ground or reach for the sky. When left unattended, these stems or branches can get out of hand. You must have them trimmed to maintain their shape.

Bushes

Bushes have thinner undergrowth and typically require less care and maintenance. With that said, there are cases in which your bushes can grow excessively, causing a need for trimming. We can trim your bush appropriately to maintain its beauty and your landscape’s appearance when that occurs.

Hedges

Hedges are considered a close line of shrubs or trees that have been trimmed to form a barrier or boundary. Hedge trimming must be performed regularly to maintain shape and elegance. These plants cannot go without maintenance; otherwise, they’ll look unsightly and unkempt. Have them trimmed regularly.

Safety First

Tree Trimming Precautions

We never recommend you trim your trees when a ladder is required. Doing so can be dangerous, especially when you don’t have experience trimming trees or safety equipment. Our team handles tree trimming safely and with specific attention to the following:

Secure the Area

Preventing individuals from entering the area where the tree is being trimmed is essential for the safety of nearby people.

Mindful of Structures

When trimming trees close to structures, we are mindful and precise while removing limbs.

Safety Equipment

Our team is equipped with all of the necessary tools and safety equipment to ensure a safe and efficient tree trimming operation.

Mindful of Power Lines

Similar to structures, we take special precautions when trimming trees near powerlines to prevent damage to public property.
