Don’t worry– we at TarHeel Residential Tree Service, LLC are happy to help answer all your tree trimming questions. Here are a few frequently asked questions (FAQs) that we run into.

You might know that tree trimming is important

  • What time of year is best for tree trimming? If you are looking at tree trimming for aesthetic reasons, then the time of year isn’t necessarily a factor, unless the needed tree trimming is on the severe side. For tree pruning, however, you will do best to discuss your this with an arborist, since different species prune best at different times of the year.
  • Is tree trimming the same thing as pruning? No. Tree pruning is a series of strategic cuts that are purposeful and for the health and future growth of the tree. Tree trimming, on the other hand, can be purposeful or for aesthetic reasons.
  • How often should my trees be trimmed? Trees should be trimmed annually for most species, but it is always best to consult with an arborist to determine if your tree needs a longer or a more frequent maintenance tree trimming appointment.
