Tree trimming and tree pruning can do a lot to help the look and health of your tree. But it’s also useful for reducing hazards the tree might pose. The truth is trees can pose a serious safety risk in certain situations. Tree trimming in Utah is something you should consider if you think a tree poses any risk to you or others near it.
How Tree Trimming in Utah Can Reduce Hazards
1. Reduce the likelihood branches will break and fall.
Falling branches can damage property and hurt people. Sometimes, they can even kill people. It’s obvious that you need to prevent the dangers of falling branches as much as possible. Fortunately, our skilled arborists can take care of this problem for you. We can identify damaged and diseased branches and remove them safely. Our team can also help you plan to prevent future hazards with ongoing tree pruning services.
2. Create clearance underneath the crown.
If you have ever stumbled and almost fallen on a protruding tree limb, you know how scary low branches can be. They can be sharp and dangerous. And tree branches at head level can deliver an unpleasant surprise when you hit them.
Crown raising is the careful removal of lower branches to shape the underside of the tree’s crown. We can help you decide on the right height and prune the tree as necessary to achieve that height.
3. Lower the height of the crown.
Although some trees can handle lowering the crown better than others, most of the time we can lower the top of the tree to a certain degree. It may be getting too high and cause issues with the tree’s stability. Or you may need to lower it for another reason – like the installation of power lines.
4. Shape the branches to avoid objects beside the tree.
You have likely seen examples of this kind of tree trimming and shaping along the side of the road. Sometimes, tree branches can touch power line and create serious safety hazards. Our team can help you keep as much of the tree as possible while lowering the risk of touching objects to the side of the tree.
5. Decrease the overall weight of the tree.
Depending on the species, the age, and the health of the tree, you may need to remove branches to decrease its weight. With careful pruning, we can often help your tree survive longer and prevent it from falling over and causing damage.
