Protect your trees, shrubs, bushes, and your budget.
Aesthetics are an important part of making the right first impression. But pruning does so much more than beautify. Keeping your trees, shrubs and bushes properly pruned extends their lifespan and protects your commercial landscaping budget, and that’s good for your company’s bottom line.
But even more, pruning addresses potential hazards by removing low hanging “eye pokers,” keeping open sightlines and eliminating dead branches that can cause property damage in high winds.
U.S. Lawns understands the myriad of ways the simple act of pruning makes a great impact for commercial property owners and managers, and your local U.S. Lawns experts are well-versed in what your regional trees and shrubs need and when.
Pruning vs. trimming
If you’re looking to include tree care in your commercial landscape maintenance plan, depending on the types of ornamental trees and shrubs on your grounds, you may need both pruning and trimming services. What’s the difference?
Trimming is a service that is performed on a regular basis during growing season. It’s necessary for keeping shrubs and hedges uniform and tidy. Trimming is commonly done by using power hedge trimmers to cut just the tips of branches for a well-manicured appearance.
Pruning is done using hand pruners or a limb saw and is done to completely remove overgrown limbs and diseased or dead branches which promotes new growth and regeneration.
Another difference with pruning is that it’s best done during the late fall and wintertime when the tree or shrub is less likely to be stressed by high heat and drought conditions.
Both services are vital to the health and longevity of your hedges, trees and bushes when done using the right techniques at the right time.
