Professional Tree Pruning and Trimming in Calgary

Tree pruning plays a significant role in maintaining the growth, structure, and integrity of a tree.  A properly pruned tree helps minimize the risk of broken limbs, falling branches, and prevents the spreading of diseases. At ArborCare® ®, our ISA-certified arborists provide professional tree and shrub pruning and trimming in Calgary and Edmonton. We understand that trees and shrubs react to a variety of procedures and ensure that your trees remain healthy for years to come. We also pay close attention to the season, weather and other conditions that affect your tree’s growth. Contact us today to request an estimate for our pruning service.

Pruning Techniques and Procedures

When a tree is pruned properly, it receives sufficient sun exposure and air, which promotes the overall health of the tree. At ArborCare®, we understand that each client’s tree pruning needs are unique. Our professionals take pride in serving the needs of both residential and commercial clients. We specialize in a variety of tree pruning, shaping and trimming procedures, including:

  • Structural pruning. This process helps create space between trees and nearby property structures, such as power lines and buildings. It helps your tree grow and minimizes safety risks.
  • Tree cabling or bracing. If your tree is split during a storm, tree cabling or bracing services can restore the tree’s integrity and structure.
  • Crown cleaning. This procedure consists of three classes of pruning: fine, medium and coarse. It helps remove water sprouts and dead branches while improving the overall health of your tree.
  • Crown elevating. This process removes low, troublesome branches that may disturb your street or impede traffic.
  • Crown thinning and restoration. Crown restoration removes branches to promote the overall health of your tree and prevent overcrowding while improving space in the tree’s canopy.
  • Crown reduction. Typically done as a last resort to save your tree, crown reduction reduces your tree’s height through careful pruning.
  • Reshaping and shearing. This service provides your young trees with an attractive appearance.

Reasons to Prune Trees

Leaving trees unpruned for more than five to 10 years can put their health at risk and leave your property looking neglected. Here are five reasons to invest in a tree pruning service.

  1. Regular tree pruning prevents uneven growth that might otherwise become a structural threat to the entire tree.
  1. Pruning eliminates areas of weakened growth that can make a tree more vulnerable to disease.
  1. When a professional arborist comes to prune your trees and shrubs, they can also spot any signs of disease or infestation and act quickly.
  1. You may need emergency pruning. If a portion of your tree is at risk of interfering with power lines, you should take action immediately.
  1. Tree pruning is a staple of landscape maintenance. Trimming excess growth increases a home’s curb appeal and enhances the image of a business.

When to Prune Trees

If you let your trees go too long without pruning, they may become irreparable. The larger the section removed, the larger the vulnerability left behind. Most larger trees are best managed with pruning every 3 years. Smaller shrubs and ornamental trees may benefit from annual pruning. Keeping your greenery pruned helps them stay healthy and keeps your property looking its best.
