Little Rock Tree Trimming

A tree must sometimes be removed because its health is declining or to improve the safety of the area around the tree. Removing a large tree is often hazards, as trunks and large limbs are heavy and require specialized equipment to lower them down so as to avoid damage to property or injury to anyone present.

The experienced certified arborists at David’s Tree Service understand the important role trees play in property valuation as well as the intangible benefits of having trees on your property. It does not matter if a tree is small and needs occasional pruning or if a large, old tree with large limbs requires additional support in having limbs trimmed back to make way for new growth – our team can help with both. We have the right tools and equipment to meet both needs.

Reducing hazards and performing preventive maintenance are the primary reasons why tree trimming is done. While reducing hazards through tree trimming removes branches that impact the tree’s structure, avoiding potential accidents, trimming and pruning done as routine maintenance is done in such a way as to keep trees healthy and thriving.

The team at David’s Tree Service offers many different types of tree trimming. As such, you may hear us use a variety of terms to describe the type of tree trimming we intend to do while caring for your trees. Some common services which fall under tree trimming and pruning include:

Raising – Trimming or removing tree limbs on the lower part of the tree with the overall goal being elevating the tree canopy. Raising increases sunlight coming through the tree and onto the lawn, improving grass growth and visibility to the house or backyard.

Deadwooding – Describes removing dead and broken tree limbs, deadwooding prevents future decay and helps dead areas of the tree heal better over time.

Pruning and shaping – Done for aesthetic purposes and to make trees more uniform, pruning and shaping gives a property a more upscale look without making drastic changes before sale or appraisal.

Crown reduction – Reduces weight of tree limbs and takes preventive steps toward avoiding damage to the property or tree itself. In addition, crown reduction also enhances the tree’s overall appearance and improves the odds the tree will grow straight and healthy. In contrast to tree topping, which we do not advocate, crown reduction encourages healthy growth without taking away from the beauty of the tree.

Selective trimming – Removes crossover and avoids limb overcrowding. Selective trimming enhances the branch structure of the tree and encourages healthy growth. A practice that some tree service companies promote called over thinning or lion-tailing can be dangerous, so we advocate for selective trimming as a tree trimming strategy instead. Another such dangerous practice, called flush cutting, damages tree trunk wood and exposes the tree to decay and diseases. If we are going to reduce the number of limbs, we take a very strategic approach and advocate for practices like collar cutting, which maintains the tree’s integrity while also reducing the number of larger limbs on the tree.
