Tree Prunning for a happy and healthy tree


Tree pruning in Albuquerque is a thorough process that covers much more than a tree's aesthetic look. Professional tree trimming includes removing any deadwood and making selected cuts to eliminate poorly structured growth, such as branches that rub against each other and branches that grow down, rather than up. Pruning can also include thinning the inner growth to allow more air and light into the canopy's center. The ultimate purpose of pruning is to improve the tree's structure, habit, and balance, in order to improve its general health. The additional aesthetic appeal is just an additional benefit! 

What is Tree Trimming?

Professional tree trimming is a different tree care than pruning. Although similar, tree trimming helps to reduce uneven branch development or foliage that is pressing against a wall or structure. Trimming can also raise the canopy over a sidewalk or roadway for added safety. It's more of a fine-tuning of a tree's form and natural development, similar to cutting your hair to balance it out.
