Trimming evergreen trees and tree pruning is an essential part of keeping your trees healthy and looking their best.

Our certified arborists and Portland tree pruning & trimming specialists at Evergreen Tree Services can provide you with professional maintenance services to stimulate growth, sustain health, and protect your trees from damage.

Our tree care team members are specially trained in the science and art of trimming and pruning trees. Our Portland tree pruning & trimming specialists are familiar with most species of trees, including how they should look and what they need to maintain a healthy lifecycle. Our knowledge of tree biology can help us to spot any flaws or defects to eliminate them before they lead to permanent damage. We can also shape your trees aesthetically to enhance the appearance of your yard and property.
When properly trimmed and pruned your trees will be properly shaped and this will help them to withstand wind and storms. Trees that have not been trimmed and pruned can have lopsided tops and multiple small branches and twigs. These will create what is called the “sail effect” which makes them weaker and unable to stand up to storm winds.
Your untrained and inexperienced eye may not be able to tell if your trees are healthy. A professional arborist can do this and do it well. With early detection, you can catch diseases that could lead to a tree’s death if left untreated. Proper routine attention can help to pick up problems with tree health as it relates to diseases and pests and can help you save a tree or all the trees on your property.
The way we prune trees to ensure that the tree gets adequate amounts of sunlight so that it can continue to grow at a healthy rate. This is achieved by the way the trees are pruned to allow more light penetration into the crown of the tree.
You need all who visit your property to be safe while there. As such, you want to ensure that your trees are trimmed to remove any unhealthy or dangerous branches and limbs. Unhealthy branches and limbs can fall at any time, and you don’t want this to hurt anyone or damage your property. Routine maintenance will identify these limbs and branches early enough so they can be removed.
By removing unhealthy branches or limbs you can improve your tree’s lifespan. Removing unhealthy tree parts will help to prevent further decay of the tree.
You want your property to be appealing, and well-maintained trees and landscaping is always a head-turner. Trees need to be healthy, well-shaped and free of damaged parts for them to exude the most beauty.
When it is time to sell, you will find that the aesthetics of your property’s exterior will go a long way in helping you get the best offer. Consumers buy with their eyes, and if your landscaping is appealing, they will be more willing to pay top dollar for your property.
In general, most trees should be trimmed at least once a year. There are trees that may need biannual trimming, like flowering and fruit trees. Evergreens, on the other hand, can go without the biannual pruning.
Outside of aesthetics, trimming your trees can help promote growth and prevent dry wood from catching fire. You should consider trimming your trees more often if the tree growth interferes with power lines, if the growth puts your property in danger of being damaged, or if the growth obstructs pedestrians or vehicles. In these cases, pruning must be done in rates relative to the tree’s growth rate.
While many people understand that regular maintenance is key, some might not realize that seasonality is a determining factor for when you should trim your trees. Specific types of trees are best pruned in specific seasons for the best overall results. The type and extent of pruning that is necessary is also different from tree to tree. This is why it is important to have professionals like Evergreen Tree Services take care of all your pruning needs.
