Austin Tree Trimming & Pruning Services
Tree trimming is one of the most effective methods of improving the appearance of your property. Properly maintained, landscaped trees help make your home a more beautiful and desirable place. Professional pruning and tree trimming services improve the health of your trees, prolongs their life, and keeps you safe from unhealthy or dangerous limbs. Routine tree trimming typically occurs once per year during the dormant season, but our Austin arborists can make the best recommendations for your specific situation.
The arborists at Happy Tree Service know the trees in Austin. Your tree trimming or tree cabling service requires a level of care to maintain their safety and aesthetics. Proper pruning is done with an understanding of how each tree responds to each cut. Improper pruning can kill a tree or cause life-long damage. At Happy Tree Service, we only prune and trim with a full understanding of both the goal of the trim and the biology of the tree. Unnecessary or improper trimming is wasteful and dangerous. For example, some tree diseases, such as oak wilt, can be spread when pruned during certain seasonal periods. Our Certified Austin Arborists understand that proper tree trimming, combined with an understanding of tree biology, maintains tree health while enhancing the aesthetic value of your property.

Besides keeping up appearances, pruning a tree can have many other benefits. It’s important that you trim dead branches from trees so that there isn’t a risk of them falling and hurting people, power lines, and structures. Removing these harmful pieces of the tree benefits its surroundings and the tree itself. Pruning can allow trees to have more freedom and space as they grow and create a more structurally sound configuration of branches. While it is highly recommended that you hire a professional to take care of the important task of pruning trees, with a bit of research, you should be able to take care of small issues by yourself safely. Before you begin trimming, you should do some further research or consult with an arborist to find out exactly what time of year is the best to trim your tree.
In order to start trimming your trees properly, there are a few things that you must know. The best time to trim is especially important in order to keep your trees healthy. The best time to prune your trees is during spring and early summer, although this can vary greatly depending on the type of tree you’re intending to trim. While some trees benefit from being trimmed in the winter when they’re dormant, others such as Oaks cannot be trimmed at all from April to October because of the risk of disease. Emergency trimming is, of course, an entirely different matter, and you should remove any branches that you feel are a danger to the tree and its surroundings as soon as you can. However, in these cases you should go ahead and call in a professional to take care of endangering branches.
