Portland Tree Trimming Service
Trimming or removing branches on a tree is known as "tree trimming." We recommend pruning or trimming your tree every third year for optimum health.
When limbs on a tree begin to die, we remove them to improve the health of the tree while also increasing safety for people and vehicles. Tree pruning may also be done for aesthetic reasons to create a certain form or improve symmetry. It can also let more light onto your property. Pruning and trimming your tree may boost its stability, health, and appearance.
Trees planted in a yard are significantly different from trees in a forest. They need considerably more attention and care to keep their look and integrity. They're in a less natural setting than a forest.
Pruning improperly can result in irreversible damage that lingers throughout the lifetime of the tree. In the worst-case scenario, you'll be shortening the tree's life by a significant amount. If you have a tree that needs pruning/trimming, it is best to work with an ISA Certified Arborist® trained in tree health. Give us a call at 503-433-5907 and we will set up a free assessment and estimate for your tree. We work hard to be the best tree service company in Portland Oregon.

Tree Trimming Methods
Deadwooding - Tree Cleaning
This method is generally used for coniferous trees and involves the removal of dead, dying, or diseased branches. It also removes any crossing, rubbing, or weakly attached branches. These weak branches can break off during storms and damage your property so it is best to take care of them before bad weather arrives.
The raising pruning method is often used on shade trees that are growing too low and interfering with houses, sidewalks, driveways, or other structures. When lower branches are removed they no longer compete for sunlight and your tree is healthier overall.
Used to reduce the size of a tree, this method helps to control its growth and shape. It can be done for safety reasons (to remove branches that are hanging over power lines) or for aesthetic reasons (to thin out a tree that is too dense).
Thinning pruning is similar to reduction pruning, but it is usually done to improve the tree's appearance. It involves removing selected branches to increase air circulation and light penetration.

"I am SO pleased with my experience working with All Around Arbor! I had many large trees trimmed as part of the service and the whole process from requesting a quote to completion of the work was very painless! The price was very fair and the crew who came to my home was polite and thorough. Everything took less time than I expected and the yard was left nice and clean. The trees all look great! Highly recommend."

Pruning enhances the beauty of your Trees
Pruning trees may seem like a counterintuitive way to make them more beautiful, but there are good reasons for doing so. For one thing, pruning can help to remove diseased or damaged branches, which can improve the overall appearance of the tree. In addition, pruning can help to encourage new growth, which can give the tree a fuller, more lush appearance.
We prioritize tree health and make sure your trees look their best for you and your family to enjoy for many years to come.
Finally, pruning can help to improve the overall health of the tree by removing weak or diseased branches. Young trees can benefit from pruning to stimulate growth. All of these factors can make a big difference in the way a tree looks, and they can all be achieved through pruning.
