Topping trees is a major threat to the urban forest and eventually destroys beautiful and valuable resources. To understand more about topping and its detriment on trees check out our, ask an arborist section.
Trimming is one of the most important things you can have done for your trees. Having your trees trimmed by a professional preserves the natural beauty of your trees, helps prevent disease and improves the over all health and structure of your tree.
Tree pruning improves the health of your trees by removing broken, diseased or dead branches which prevents decay-producing fungi from gaining a foothold. Live branches may be removed or thinned to improve the structure of the tree and enhance air circulation in the canopy. Some branches that overhang driveways, walkways or building pose a safety hazard and will need to be pruned. At Sussex Tree our arborist are trained to spot such problems.
