Tree Trimming and Pruning in Boise, Idaho
Arborists have years of experience dealing with trees in Idaho. They can help you with proper pruning, shaping, fertilization and tree care.
As the original landscaping ages, shrubs that have been incorrectly trimmed, or neglected can become hollow with interior branches that are unproductive. They can also become lopsided or begin to block paths, driveways or the view out of your windows.
Proper pruning can improve the health, physical strength, longevity and aesthetic appearance of trees. The International Society of Arborculture states, in its pruning standards, four basic pruning procedures: Crown cleaning, crown thinning, crown reduction, and crown raising. When performed competently, using proper cuts and in appropriate circumstances, these procedures will ensure your trees are safe, healthy and attractive.
Our tree specialists know that property owners need to have their trees trimmed for a variety of reasons. The branches could be touching power wires. Trees are often planted too close to fences and buildings when they are saplings.
Tree branches can also become unsound from disease or lack of balance. They can also become hazardous if they block vision for vehicles, touch electrical wires, or block satellite dishes.
Maintenance pruning will also help the homeowner keep the value of the landscaping preventing costly replacement of mature trees. Pruning your tree can seem like a good do-yourself-project, if you have the right tools, ladder, hand strength and knowledge of trees, plus, plenty of time to remove all those trimmed branches.
However, each tree species requires a different approach to pruning. Knowing which branches are the structural kingpins of the tree and pruning to strengthen and develop those branches require an arborist who is trained in all things to do with trees and woody plants. Your tree may not be able to recover from a poorly executed trim. It is important that your tree trimming company has an arborist. Often an arborist will be willing to consult with you before your begin a DIY project, so you have a strategic approach to your landscaping.
This is one of those projects that can be dangerous and difficult, without experience and the right equipment.
Accent the Natural Shape of your Trees
As trees grow, their growth pattern is determined by several factors. The shape of the sapling is the first indicator how a tree will look when it reaches its full heighth. Are the branches evenly spaced. Is the main trunk straight? A slightly crooked trunk on a sapling, can develop into quite a curve in the adult tree. The second factor is weather. Wind currents, ground drainage, and uneven soil conditions, can result in a tree that is growing unevenly. Shaping branches that take away from the natural shape of the tree brings out the beauty of the particular type of tree.
