Tree Trimming and Pruning in Atlanta

Take Care of Tree Limbs Before It Becomes a Problem

Everyone knows the damage a tree can do when it falls, but we don’t always think about what can happen with a limb until it’s too late. A storm blows through Atlanta and suddenly your car has a shattered windshield because you didn’t think that branch was an issue.

Beyond that, regular trimming and pruning is good for the health of your trees. Trimming dead branches stops the spread of disease and can help shore up weak points in the tree’s structure. It improves sun access and air circulation. Not to mention that a well-trimmed tree looks better than one that’s overgrown.

Are you looking to protect your tree from decay and rot? Are you worried about a particularly precarious looking limb? Or are you simply wanting more sunlight to get to your yard. Whatever the case may be, the team at Atlanta United Tree Service is here to make sure your trees are looking sharp and healthy, no matter what time of year.

Frequently Asked Questions About Trimming and Pruning Atlanta Trees

A comprehensive tree trimming and pruning should be done every year.

During the dormant season. January tends to be a good time for it.

There are a lot of variables to determine that. We’re not willing to be inaccurate, which is why we always insist on the free, in-person consultation. Let us get a look at your tree and we’ll set your mind at ease.

“Thinning” is cutting branches off all over the inside of the tree. Thinning also reduces the wind-sail effect and the weight of heavy limbs. Mature trees should have no more than one-third of live foliage removed when thinned. Thinning is also very beneficial to the health of the surrounding trees, shrubs, or lawn by allowing more air movement and sunlight penetration. “Canopy raising” is removing lower limbs off the tree. When canopy raising is done it is important to provide specifics to the arborist as to what clearance, or height to remove to. Canopy raising should also be done slowly as the tree grows, starting when the tree is young, until it reaches maturity. Raising the canopy on a large mature tree can be very stressful on the tree and create such large wounds that the tree may never be able to heal properly.
