How does routine tree maintenance benefit my trees?
Trees that live in the suburban and urban areas are mostly appreciated for their aesthetic values, the shade they produce, and the oxygen that is naturally emitted into the air from trees. Many home developers studies state that your properties value could increase by up to 25% simply by maintaining the health, integrity and eye appeal of your trees and other landscape. Landscape trees, depending on the placement of your trees they may also help with energy savings. For example, an adult tree has the potential to block up to 90% of solar radiation, which translates into savings on your cooling expenses.

What is the difference between tree "topping" and tree "pruning"?
Topping is a much more invasive procedure and is generally performed with very little regard to growth pattern or even the trees appearance. "Topping" is similar to "pruning" in that they both are performed to remove extremely excessive parts above and beyond normal height and structure. However, pruning is a more precise procedure that focuses on the natural growth patterns of the tree. Selectively removing excessive growth creates room for new growth and also makes the tree more attractive pleasing to the eye.
What time of the year is best for tree trimming?
Routine tree trimming can be performed whenever necessary. At Complete Tree Services Inc. we suggest to do your more extensive pruning in the fall, winter or summer. Trees use tremendous energy producing new foliage they tend to be more vulnerable to infection and stress in the spring. Thus the spring should be avoided for heavy pruning.
