Tree Pruning Is an Art and a Science

There is no one-size-fits-all plan for pruning trees. Each tree offers a different challenge to the experts at Trees Are Us of Middle GA. Overgrown branches and connections to electrical wires are just the beginning for our professional tree pruners who have knowledge and experience of every type of tree and situation in Middle, Georgia.

What Is Tree Pruning

Pruning focuses on the tree’s health. We take into consideration the whole tree, including the natural shape of the canopy as well as the position and condition of the branches. Unpruned or incorrectly pruned trees can shorten the tree’s life and make it a safety hazard that could endanger people, pets, and property.

When Does a Branch Need Pruning?

There are certain criteria that we use at Trees Are Us of Middle GA to determine when to prune. A few of the things we look for are:

  • Dead, diseased or dying branches
  • Branches that rub together
  • Sprouts growing at the base of the tree
  • Branches that interfere with power lines, traffic or buildings
  • Branches that grow across the tree’s center

When to Prune Trees in Middle Georgia?

Rotten and dead branches can be removed at any time of the year. Annual pruning tree maintenance should usually be done during the winter when the tree is dormant. Flowering plants can be pruned in the summer after flowering.

Summer is also a good time to prune plants that ooze sap after cutting. Called bleeding, this will give the tree time to recover before the dormant period starts. Autumn is not a good time to prune trees because it is in the fall that diseases and fungi are in the air.

The Benefit of Hiring a Licensed Arborist

The professionals at Trees Are Us of Middle GA are licensed arborists that have the tools and experience to prune high branches and heavy limbs. We also understand local codes and how to handle power lines and protect you and your neighbor’s property when big limbs come down.

We use a large variety of sharp tools, including a chain saw, pruning saw, lopper shears, and pole pruners. We can go high into the canopy of mature trees to cut unwanted branches and shape the canopy.

While you may be able to prune some lower branches of a small tree, large and damaged trees should be pruned by a professional. This will save the health of the tree while keeping its attractive appearance. We provide a variety of tree services in Warner Robins and the surrounding communities.
