Trimming for Health and Structural Integrity

A tree needs trimming for many reasons - mainly for its health and structural integrity. When branches begin to encroach upon their surroundings, they must be trimmed back. Correct trimming can help enhance the health and structural integrity of your tree. Also, trimming is a necessary part of maintaining the aesthetic beauty and function of a tree. Trimming takes knowledge and expertise to ensure that you are reducing weight and maintaining the proper thickness to withstand forces such as wind and ice.

Addressing the Specific Needs of the Charleston Climate and Soil Conditions

Since our area is prone to hurricanes and high winds, trimming trees correctly is important to reduce the risk of tree loss. When a tree has shallow roots in the sandy soil of the Charleston area, it makes toppling over more likely if it is top-heavy. Due to the rain and sand saturation, trees have a harder time with their rooting system in the South compared to other regions. By trimming a tree, you help to disperse weight to protect it against storms.
