Best Tree Trimming Services in Binghamton

By hiring a professional tree trimming service, you’ll save on your lawn care expenses and get the job done right – ensuring that your trees look their best.

What is Tree Trimming?

Tree trimming often removes the tree’s lower branches (instead of removing the whole tree) and smaller limbs to improve its appearance. This is often done to make the tree look neater and improve its shade.

A few different techniques can be used for tree trimming, but the most common is called “bagging and topping”. This involves wrapping a bag around the tree trunk and tying it off either end. Then, using a ladder, someone will climb up and cut off all branches and smaller limbs below the bag. The final step is to remove the top of the bag, revealing a neat, trimmed tree. If you’re considering having your tree trimmed, be sure to talk to your local STP Tree Services provider about what technique is best for your specific trees.

  1. Mark the pruning area with stakes or painter’s tape.
  2. Remove any dead or damaged branches and twigs from the selected area.
  3. Make a horizontal cut about 1/2 inch below the branch you want to remove.
  4. Make a vertical cut about 1/4 inch above the branch you want to remove.
  5. Repeat these cuts on the other side of the branch.
  6. Gently pull the branch out of the tree, careful not to break it off at the base.
  7. Cut off any remaining broken or dead branches and twigs around the removed branch.
