Tree Trimming/Pruning Services in Richmond, VA
Serving Ashland, Hanover, Henrico, Glen Allen, Mechanicsville, VA, & the Surrounding Areas
You keep your trees watered, but it takes more than moisture to ensure they stay tall, strong, and healthy. Most adult trees also need regular pruning/trimming to develop healthy growth patterns.
At R. L. Elliott Enterprises, Inc., our team of arborists can evaluate the needs of your trees on your residential or commercial property and recommend tree trimming/pruning or removal accordingly.
Purposes of Tree Pruning/Trimming
Why is pruning so important? Expert branch removal and trimming can protect the structural integrity, safety, and growth of your tree, as well as help with its appearance. Our team uses pruning/trimming to help with the following tree issues:
- Crossed limbs
- Dead or dying branches/limbs that pose an impact threat to the people and personal property below them
- High wind load conditions (weight reduction pruning can help preserve the tree from winds)
- Correct trees that were previously shaped wrong, which makes them less attractive or unhealthy
- Overhanging branches
- Structural issues caused by poor growth patterns
- Stunted growth in young trees
- Weakened or damaged limbs
We recommend routine pruning/trimming to ensure that your trees can weather most seasonal storms, including wind and snow storms.
Our arborists can diagnose most conditions, diseases, and damage that affect tree species found in Virginia. Once we evaluate the trees on your property, we can properly trim/prune your tree and/or take other important treatment measures.
Importance of Using a Certified Arborist
Each individual tree has different needs according to its age, size, location, and species. The team at R. L. Elliott Enterprises, Inc. has over 38 years of experience caring for trees in the Richmond, VA area. We have a Certified Arborist on staff who has gone to school to learn the proper pruning techniques for a healthier tree. An improperly pruned tree can cause disease down the road. Make sure the company you hire knows ANSI 300A Pruning Standards. We do not recommend topping trees because it can be detrimental to the tree’s health.
When done properly, limb removal and trimming can create a safer tree. To ensure your family, home, customers, employees, and business facilities stay protected, call R. L. Elliott Enterprises, Inc., the company with a Certified Arborist.
