Tree Pruning

Greenville Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is an important part of tree care which can define the health of the species growing in your landscape. But this process shouldn’t be done by just anyone with a pair of garden shears or a saw. It requires precision and experience. Expertly placed cuts ensure longer life. As a company with over 30 years of experience and led by a professional arborist, we will care for your foliage to make it safe and healthy.

What is Tree Pruning?

Because trees grow close together in nature, they are able to effectively trim loose or dying branches off of one other with the help of the wind. Pruning is a series of precise cuts that essentially do the same thing. When an amateur attempts to prune, they often make cuts in the wrong places which can make the plant prone to fungus or insect infestation. Our team of professionals has the training and knowledge to know where to slice and trim.

Why We Should Prune

Tree pruning is one of the most successful prevention measures you can take against property damage and injuries from fallen trunks and branches. Because dead or dying limbs pose a threat, they need to be removed before they fall due to natural processes. During a storm, high winds can easily blow a loose branch off and turn it into a dangerous projectile. This could damage your property or someone else’s.

If a branch is damaged during a storm, it can also lead to problems that spread throughout the rest of the tree. Pest infestation and decay are leading causes of premature tree deaths. By using professional Greenville tree pruning, you can help prevent serious damage from spreading.

Careful cutting can also increase the health of the tree and the surrounding plants. In the spring or summer when your species may begin flowering or bearing fruit, you may notice it is not producing as much as usual. Proper tree pruning at the right time of year can increase the production.

You can also use meticulous cuts to thin the branches inside the crown while maintaining a full outward appearance. This will allow sunlight to pass through with ease to the lower leaves. It will also help to prevent toppling from heavy winds because there is less surface for the wind to catch. By allowing more sunlight through, this can also help grass and other plants to grow in more plentifully underneath the sprawling branches.

When to Cut

Experts like us know that the best time for tree pruning in Spartanburg is during the species’ dormant season. At any other time of the year, the tree will ooze sap and attract destructive insects. And because the leaves will have fallen, we’ll be able to see all of the branches with ease and spot any issues.

We will create a plan of action before we start your tree pruning project. Cutting back too much or removing too many branches can create health issues and attract pests, canker and fungus. Our goal is to provide excellent tree care that helps your landscaping to thrive.

Customer Reviews

"My husband and I used Carolina Outdoor Care a few months ago and were very pleased. We had put off having our three large trees cut down due to there closeness to the house and the cost. We had one dead tree and one that hung completely over our house. All three where within 10ft of the house. We also had power and cable lines running under the trees to the house and shop. I was terrified of the damage that could be done to our house and our budget. Carolina Outdoor Care had impeccable customer service. They were able to work within our budget and finished all the work in one day. There was no damage to our house or yard. It was amazing to watch them work. We will use Carolina Outdoor Care in the future and highly recommend them."

"I have used Carolina Outdoor service to remove two trees from my backyard. One was dead and the other was endangering my neighbors property. Carolina Outdoor safely removed both trees and then pointed out ways I can reduce my liability with my remaining trees. They were on-time professionals and worked with-in my limited budget"
