Tree Trimming and Pruning Are Part of Good Tree Care Management
When trees are left to grow wild, their branches will extend further and further out. That can be dangerous when your trees are right next to your roof or the power lines on your street. They can even start to encroach on other trees and start competing for resources.
Professional tree trimming keeps trees in check. At McGinty Bros., Inc. we start all of our services with a tree evaluation so you can learn about your trees' health and potential weak points. Then we can start cutting away damaged or unwanted parts of your tree. Tree trimming service keep your trees healthy because:
- We prevent overgrowth.
- We remove dead, diseased, cracking, or pest-damaged branches.
- We can trim trees back away from structures, power lines, and the edge of your property.
- We keep your trees' shaping crisp and pristine.
We take care to trim your trees at the best time to keep them healthy. We handle most tree trimming during the winter and your trees' dormant seasons to reduce damage or the risk of disease. If you have oak or American Elm trees, it's even more important that they're only trimmed during their dormant seasons so they won't develop Oak Wilt or Dutch Elm Disease.
Tree Trimming vs. Tree Pruning
These two terms are thrown together a lot. They mean slightly different things to industry experts, and our arborist can tell you all about it. Generally speaking, tree trimming is all about the cosmetics: topiaries with perfect spirals, hedges that are perfectly round or perfectly rectangular, all that good stuff that makes your landscaping the best on the block.
Tree pruning services preserve the health of the tree. This is when we:
- Cut away diseased or damaged branches,
- Ensure your branches have adequate sun exposure, and
- Keep your tree from growing lopsided and causing itself damage.
It's okay to call it all 'tree trimming.' You can even call it 'that tree care stuff.' You don't have to keep the differences in mind because:
We Do It All
If your trees aren't growing the way you want or the way they should, the tree care experts at McGinty Bros., Inc. are on it. We can trim, prune, cut, and (when it has to happen) remove with the best of the best.
Don't Let Your Trees Grow Wild
The wild, giant trees you see in nature are beautiful, but they don't belong in your front yard. Our Hawthorn Woods, IL tree trimming service help your trees grow in a controlled, healthy manner that won't compromise your roof, smother your lawn in shade, or make them collapse under their own weight. Professional tree trimming service are all about carefully cutting away parts of your tree so they grow straight, shapely, and healthy.
Trimming Early and Often Shapes Your Trees Correctly
You've probably seen trees with ugly knots on the side where at fully grown branch had been cut away. At McGinty Bros., Inc., we do our best to make sure that never happens. Through our tree trimming service, we trim back twigs and small, developing branches when we know a branch shouldn't be growing there. That stops your trees from developing scars. It also makes your trees easier to manage overall.
Our tree care specialists can also create trimming plans to control the overall shape of your tree over the years. Every type of tree has an optimal shape and size. Whether the branches need to be wide and open or tall and compact, we can make it happen.
Flowering and Fruit Trees Need to Be Pruned
If your landscaping includes fruit trees — well, first, that's awesome. Second, they'll need some help controlling their own growth, too. Everything from apple trees to peach trees grows more branches than they really need. That makes the branches compete for sunlight, and the water and nutrients in the soil will be spread too thin. You can end up with tiny fruit and trees that are more vulnerable to disease.
At McGinty Bros., Inc., we'll keep your trees pruned so the centers stay open for healthy sunlight exposure. Our experts will also create pruning schedules during the first years of your trees' development to encourage healthy, rich fruit production.
Opt for Trimming, Not Topping
You don't want to be the Hawthorn Woods, IL homeowner that knocks out the power for the whole neighborhood. Tall trees with unmanaged branches and limbs can tangle with power lines nearby. "Topping" is a common solution that lops off the top or chunks of your tree to keep them clear of the power lines. Topping is also hazardous to the tree’s health as well as a future hazard to anything or anybody near the tree. The sprouts that come out from the “topped” area are weakly attached and can fall off at any time as the tree grows.
Also, it's ugly, and no one likes it.
That's where our trimming services come in. If a tree looks like it's going to grow anywhere near a power line or a building, we can work with you to get it fixed quickly. Careful trimming can shape the plant to grow in a different direction. We can also taper the crown of your tree so it can still grow tall and healthy without nudging the utility poles down the line.
We Handle Tree and Shrub Removal, Too
It's always sad to see a good tree go. When trees receive too much storm damage or get too weakened by disease, sometimes cutting down the tree is the right call. Trees may also need to be removed if they're structurally unsound or they're growing too close to your house. McGinty Bros., Inc. has insured tree removal services so your property stays safe during the whole process. Our tree care team is also certified to diagnose your tree, salvage as much of it as possible, or remove the whole thing.
We also offer stump grinding services so you can have a smooth, safe lawn. Our team will grind stumps up to a foot below the original grade. We will also haul away the debris from the stump grinding and tree removal process unless you want to keep it for mulch or firewood.
