Why is tree pruning and trimming vital for green health?

tree felling in London
  • Young trees need to be pruned effectively if you want them to have a strong frame for later growth.
  • Although the process may appear a little cruel, it is actually very healthy for the tree.
  • Removing dead or diseased branches is good for protecting you from property damage as well as your tree's health!
  • Fewer branches mean more sunlight can reach the tree as well as plants, other trees, and flowers beneath its canopy.
  • Heavier branches can be easier to damage by their own weight or the wind - removing them is a good idea for your tree.
  • If you want your tree to be healthier (and produce more fruit if it's fruit-bearing), regular crown pruning maximises the right conditions.

Why choose our tree trimming and pruning service in London?

To coin a phrase, a tree surgeon's expertise doesn't grow on trees. Fantastic Gardeners' professionals have extensive knowledge, training, qualifications, and all the certifications needed to ensure that all of the tree pruning services we deliver in London, as well as tree felling, are safe for everyone involved. You, our specialists, and - perhaps most importantly - your trees.

Because tree maintenance services should only be handled by people with the right skills and the right equipment. If your trees aren't cared for correctly, you risk:

  1. Damage to your trees caused by too much cutting or incorrect pruning.
  2. Once inflicted, this damage can become long-term problems.
  3. In the short term, shocked trees try to recover by producing unhealthy streams and leaders.
  4. These tend to fail, causing weak attachments and eventual death.
  5. Fruit trees need to be pruned at the right time of year if you want them to produce well.

Frequently asked questions

Does pruning hurt trees?

Not at all. As long as it is done by an expert, pruning is a healthy thing for trees.

How regularly do I need a tree trimming service near me?

This depends on the species of your tree. But once or twice a year is common.

What is the best time of year to prune?

As long as it is done properly, most trees can be pruned year-round. The only exception is if you want to achieve something in particular with your tree pruning services, such as increasing your fruit harvest.

Can you kill a tree by over-pruning it?

If pruning is done without any knowledge, you can certainly kill a tree through too much of it. If you were trimming a very small tree yourself, you would need to start with making only small cuts, only ever removing one or two branches at once. Never remove any large branches unless they are damaged. If you want to avoid damaging your tree, using a professional is always the safest plan.

Why is tree trimming important?

If you are already looking for tree trimming services in your area, you probably already understand that trimming is the best way to keep your tree looking neat and attractive as well as safe and healthy. For example, dead or broken limbs are obvious hazards if not dealt with. A tree cutting service can also help you save trees which have become infected. Experts tree surgeons like those on the Fantastic Services team can identify deadwood by looking for fungus growth, cracks, or changes in branch colour. They can then address the problem strategically, removing the right branches to leave your tree with a healthy base to start growing strong again.
