At Kawasaki Lawn Care, you will receive the highest quality tree trimming services in Orange County, Inland Empire and the Los Angeles area. Tree trimming means to keep the tree from falling sick and cutting any part of it from falling off the tree. This is necessary to keep your lawn clean and safe from the tree branches. If the trimming and pruning is serviced correctly then it can add to the beauty of your property. Kawasaki Lawn Care will remove diseased, broken, or dead branches on mature trees and young trees alike for tree protection. This prevents decay-producing fungi from penetrating and infecting other areas of your tree. The removal of live branches is occasionally necessary to allow increased exposure to sunlight and circulation of air within the canopy.
Trimming Keeps Trees Healthy and Beautiful
Trimming trees should be done during the dormant period of the tree. The dormancy period of the tree will allow you to easily see the branches and figure out the healthy and unhealthy limbs. It is not recommended to trim Oak Trees between April and October because they will then be more susceptible to Oak Wilt disease. Do not trim Dogwoods in April or May because it makes them attractive to a damaging insect called a dogwood borer. Trim Maples in mid-winter when they are fully dormant. Trim flowering trees within three weeks of their blooming. This allows you to make sure you don’t cut any buds off.
Kawasaki Lawn Care works to the standard of branches must be cut back to its parent limb. This step is necessary because the healing of the trimming works faster thus avoiding any insect or fungus infection effecting the tree.
A tree can be considered for the process of pruning only if it belongs to a particular species, has a rapid growth rate, is coming in between the power lines, unusual design of tree, etc. Below are the images showing how a particular tree looks after performing a particular style of trimming:
|Side-trimming prunes back branches on the side of the tree.|
V-Cut (also crown reduction)
In V-cutting, branches are pruned back toward the center of tree crown.
|Notch-trimming prunes branches to create a “notch” in the upper tree crown so power lines can pass to the side and above the tree.|
Kawasaki Lawn Care uses natural trimming methods under which the branches are simply cut back to the part from where they grew. Natural trimming is considered a healthy way since the tree remains unaffected and can grow back easily. Topping is avoided since it involves cutting of tree in order to reduce the size of the crown. The shape of a tree after topping looks more balanced but it is considered harmful and stressful for the tree.
