Trees require attention and care in order to remain properly healthy over the long term, and one of the best things that you can do for the health u of your trees is to ensure that your trees (as well as your shrubs) are kept properly trimmed, pruned, and cut.
In fact, virtually all woody plants. Require pruning in order to maintain their proper structure and to remove material that could be damaged or diseased. But at the same time, failing to prune or trim your trees properly can sometimes be worse than failing to trim or prune them at all.
This is because if you prune or cut trees improperly, it can expose the soft tissue inside to disease, insect, and other outside elements that can result in decay over time. This is why investing in professional pruning and trimming services to ensure proper tree and shrub healthy is so critical, and that’s where Folsom Tree Service can step in to help.

Structural pruning is especially important for younger trees because it has a huge impact on them as they mature.
There are many different types of trees which, when grown naturally in a forest, will grow upright and lose their lower leaves and branches due to them receiving less sunlight. But when the trees are planted in the full sun, those same types of trees can develop multiple stems, which will be more failure prone later in life, and can even shorten the overall life of the tree.
Folsom Tree Service arborists know exactly how each unique species of tree is going to react to its environment, which species need to be pruned or trimmed, and how they need to be pruned or trimmed. Simply put, pruning trees when they are young is crucial to ensure that they have a solid framework for stronger growth later on.
Older trees can be very vulnerable to improper cutting and pruning and other forms of damage, and they require special care in order to remain viably healthy and to avoid turning into hazards.
One of the tree trimming services that Folsom Tree Services offers for older trees is called crown cleaning, or when dying and dead branches are removed in order to ensure the overall safety of the plant.
Another service we offer is crown thinning, which is where we remove live branches, but to limit density and increase the overall resistance of the tree to winds, rain, and storms. In general, crown thinning should only be reserved for the outer sections of the canopy, since it’s better to leave more branch on the interior part of the crown.
Regardless of which treatment option is necessary, the professional arborists at Folsom Tree Service will always evaluate your trees’ condition in order to help decide which types of trimming or pruning will be necessary. Give us a call at (916) 260-2937.
