Professional Tree Trimming and Pruning Service

Since 1978, Ross Tree Company has provided tree care services in the Denver area. Proper tree pruning is both a science and an art. The “science” is plant physiology. The “art” is taking the time to trim or prune a tree properly. Generally, pruning trees involves removing damaged, weak, or dead limbs. Pruning benefits a tree’s long-term health by improving tree structure and encouraging healthy growth. Ross Tree Company offers free estimates based upon a site visit. We evaluate the tree(s) and provide a quote to the property owner.

Types of Tree Pruning

Tree pruning should be done with care because every species of tree is different and has varying pruning needs. Some trees need trimming in late winter, while others need pruning at the end of the summer. Different types of tree pruning are listed below:

  • Structural Pruning – Forest trees grow straight and strong to compete for light. In an urban setting like Denver with 300 days of sunshine per year, the abundance of sunlight causes excessive branching. Denver is also known for its spring and fall snow storms. Heavy snow can wreak havoc on trees and break limbs. This is called mechanical breakage. Structural pruning favors a single dominate leader that promotes stronger tree growth around a single trunk. Weaker tree limbs are trimmed back to their strongest point or removed. Structural pruning prepares trees to resist Denver’s snow storms.
  • Safety Pruning – Deadwood in trees can be a hazard and is caused by hard winters, squirrels, or disease. Safety pruning removes deadwood from a tree to prevent limbs falling in a yard, adjacent property, or on sidewalks.
  • Shaping – We understand the growth patterns of various local trees. We prune them in a way that encourages natural growth and enhances the beauty of each tree species.
