Tree Trimming & Pruning Raleigh NC

Professional Tree Trimming & Pruning in Raleigh NC

Healthy trees add value and beauty to any property.  At Raleigh Tree Service we believe tree trimming is an excellent step towards prolonging  your trees’ safe and healthy life. There are many reasons why a tree would need trimming and pruning.

Some reasons are:

  • Removal of dead wood and unhealthy branches (target pruning)
  • Removing limbs that may threaten your home, cars, or other valuables
  • raising limb canopy to provide increased sunlight to plantings.

What Are The Different Types Of Tree Trimming?

Different tree trimming and pruning jobs may require different methods of trimming. Some tree limbs can only be accessed by bucket truck.  In other instances, a climber may need to access your tree via rope. Please note that we never use climbing spikes on a tree during the tree trimming process, as it could lead to the serious decline or even the death of your tree.  Our team’s number one priority is the healthy and well-being of your trees, so we will always take the necessary steps to preserve them. Raleigh Tree Services has years of experience in providing the different types of tree trimming and pruning services including both Clearance Pruning and Thinning and Shaping.

Clearance Pruning Around Structures

 Having full, healthy trees is the ultimate goal, but there are times where a limb or branch may interfere with a nearby structure or risk getting knocked off by passing vehicles. This can not only be a danger to you and your family, but also to your tree’s health.  If a tree’s limbs get too close to your house or roof, they could attract pests into your house.  Having foliage up against your house can also cause rotting as there won’t be enough space for air to pass and dry after rains.  Clearance over traffic-heavy areas is vital as well as you don’t want to risk someone hitting your tree, getting injured, or damaging the car or your tree.  Sudden breaks to your tree’s branches leaves your tree vulnerable to rot and other diseases that could seriously affect the overall health of your tree.  If you have a tree that is getting the way of your house, fence, or hanging too low over a busy street, give our team a call to swiftly and carefully remove the limb in the safest way possible. 

Limb Thinning & Shaping 

 Thinning and shaping your trees is very important to the overall health and longevity of your trees. If the tree’s canopy is too thick, it can limit the amount of sun exposure and can also impede on your tree getting enough nutrients.  Removing dead or dying branches can also prevent rot or spread of disease from one limb to another.  Shaping your tree not only improves the tree’s appearance, but it also promotes continued growth depending on when and how you do it.  It’s easy to over-prune a tree, and this can negatively impact the tree’s health.  Calling a professional, like Raleigh Tree Service, is the best way to ensure that your trees are trimmed and pruned correctly.
