Trimming trees in Highlands Ranch has become much more popular in the 2000s as the trees in town fully mature. When we first started in business in 1996 we rarely got calls from Highlands Ranch. We thought you didn’t like us:)
But the real reason was that the trees were young and didn’t require pruning. Nowadays it’s a completely different story. Many of the cottonwood, aspen, and crabapple trees now scrape the house during wind, block sideways or interfere with lawn mowing and other landscape chores. In other words, Highlands Ranch’s trees are all grown up and need a tree trimmer.
ArborScape can help. We created this blog to address specific issues in tree care for the town.
Tree trimming Highlands Ranch is a lot more than just providing clearance for buildings and pedestrians.
Tree Appearance-When trimming young trees, the emphasis is on promoting a strong structure, preparing the plant for a long, healthy lifetime. Mature trees are pruned to maintain structure, form, health, and appearance. Before you cut a healthy tree down, give us a call, we may be able to come up with an affordable alternative.
Safety- Pruning for safety involves the removal of branches that could fall and cause injury or damage to property. Branches that interfere with the line of sight on streets, driveways, and sidewalks need to be removed. Safety pruning can also include the select removal of branches growing into, over, and under structures, reducing building maintenance costs.
Tree Health- Trimming for health involves the removal of diseased or insect-infested branches, thinning the crown to increase airflow, and the removal of crossing and rubbing branches. Pruning is the best method to reduce the likelihood of storm damage during the high winds and heavy snow loads in our fierce Colorado climate.
