Top Benefits of Trimming and Pruning

You may think of tree trimming as something done to make a tree look better.

While improved appearance is certainly among the upsides, trimming is fundamentally a tree health practice. And it’s an important one. Here are some of the many benefits professional pruning services provide to your trees and landscape.

Treating Disease

Our tree trimming experts at Longs Peak Tree service work to either avoid or treat diseases. Many tree diseases are a result of too much moisture. When you aren’t trimming your trees to promote adequate sunlight and airflow, your tree can get too much dampness in the foliage. We work to trim the tree, which can open up the canopy to get more light and increase the airflow. When our tree care team does this, you can help prevent most moisture driven diseases.


Safety should be your number one priority and routine tree trimming can assist with that. Low hanging tree branches can be a safety risk, especially around sidewalks, driveways, and surrounding buildings. You don’t want your trees to interfere with walking pedestrians and driving cars. On urban properties, you also don’t want tree limbs to extend onto neighboring properties do not impede and especially roofs and power lines.


When you carefully trim the dead or dying branches in young trees, it can help them grow up to be strong and healthier grown trees. Thoughtful pruning or trimming of younger trees can also reduce the chances of more serious issues when they mature and will help reduce costly removals or trimming when they grow taller.

Restorative Trimming

Oftentimes there can be some sort of structural failure to tree limbs and branches, especially in mature trees. This can be caused by storm damage or just the aging of the tree, which can cause it to deteriorate. When this happens, we often recommend restoration pruning. This is when we try to bring back the tree’s natural shape and help get it healthy again. Restoration pruning requires advanced techniques that are done over multiple pruning cycles. It’s well worth it to keep your trees healthy and thriving.

Best time to prune?

The best time to prune or trim your trees in Longmont is really any time throughout the year!

The primary purpose of the pruning is for the general health of the tree, but here’s a list of recommendations.

  • Deciduous trees: ( trees that lose their leaves): When they are dormant. That’s typically November through March after the trees’ leaves have fallen and no new leaves are budding.
  • Evergreens: We typically prune evergreen trees late in their winter dormant season, just before new growth begins.
  • Pruning dead/damaged limbs: Winter is usually the best season.
