About Tree Trimming and Pruning
While the terms are used interchangeably, tree trimming and pruning are similar in nature, but different in practice. Trimming is a practice meant to clear brush, excess branches and other bodies that interfere with the growth of a tree. Pruning is the targeted removal of diseased, damaged, dead, non-productive, structurally unsound, or otherwise unwanted tissue to keep the tree aesthetically pleasing.

Why Is Trimming Important?
“On the Trimming Side of the business, we pride ourselves on the experience and planning that our crews take to trim a tree.”– Rick Barocas, Company Arborist
Tree trimming is the practice of cutting and shaping a tree to retain its shape. Properly trimmed and maintained trees are essential for the health and beautification of personal property.
Our trained crews work to reduce the risk of property damage in the event of a storm. We encourage all of our customers to evaluate their trees and determine how long it has been since they were thinned out or properly trimmed.
In terms of preventing damage to your home, it is critical to take precautionary steps to minimize or eliminate any source of danger to your property. It is crucial that everybody properly maintains and trims their trees prior to hurricane season.

Pruning is defined as the horticultural practice of removing the different parts of the tree, such asbranches, buds and roots meant to help the tree grow healthier, and keep their shape as they mature. It is typically used to ensure the proper growth of young trees and keep mature trees from being overburdened and at risk to homeowners.
Structurally, young trees are pruned to increase support and to dictate the shape they would later take upon maturity. It is imperative that trees be trimmed while young to limit the difficulties in directing their shape. Mature trees are not so pliant and would give trouble to arborists trying to fix their growth pattern.
› Live Oak (Quercus viginiana)
› Large Florida Strangler Fig (Ficus aurea)
› Royal Palm (Roystonea regia)
While Native trees are able to weather the conditions around Miami, pruning is necessary for their health and value to a property. Trees such as live oaks and royal palms are part of the ecosystem, but can be subjected to diseases common with heavy rains and insects.
› Bismarck palm (Bismarckia nobilis)
›Coconut palm (Cocos nucifera)
› Royal Poinciana (Delonix regia)

Tree size would be modified, allowing you to balance trees out with other plants to get the visual effect for your property. It also cleans up a tree by removing unsightly branches. Not only would your property be beautiful, but trimmed trees would also give you a sense of privacy without appearing affected.
The practical benefit of tree trimming is safety. Precarious branches can be pruned so that they would not fall on property or any unsuspecting passersby.
This is most important if these trees are planted on public places or those where many people pass by, such as streets, driveways and public buildings. Visibility would also be compromised, like obscured traffic lights, if trees are not trimmed.
However, tree trimming must be done with full regard for each specific tree, as improper
trimming will not only damage the tree but shorten its life.
Likewise, it should also be important to know when to trim your tree. Small branches may be trimmed any time of the year but heavy pruning should be properly planned and, if possible, an arborist consulted.

Tips from One Two Tree
– Power Lines
– Falling Injuries
From us here at One Two Tree, we advise that homeowners call a professional when it comes to trimming the trees on their property.
Whether it be a simple overhanging branch to clean up after a storm, it is better to call in the Green Team to deal with any problems.
The greatest risk can come from tree limbs that are touching or in close proximity of ungrounded power lines, which can cause electrocution if the charge jumps from the wire to the branch. There are also cases where amateur trimmers can fall from their ladders, or can be hurt by falling debris.
