The Importance of Tree Pruning And Tree Trimming For NYC Landscapes

Trees in the forest are free to grow as high and in whatever direction they like. In an urban environment such as New York City, this type of unchecked growth can present safety and health hazards. Our highly-trained, fully licensed tree service technicians can expertly prune your trees. This can stimulate their growth and promote their health while leaving you with a safe, beautiful specimen for your property.

How It Works

We have a number of ways to handle your project, often dependent upon your goals for your tree pruning. We may climb the tree, use high lifts or employ other services customized to your tree and landscape needs in order to provide the desired result of beautiful, healthy trees throughout the community.


There are many different reasons to prune trees and each one may require its
own specific approach to pruning. The major reasons for pruning a tree are:

  • Safety: If we are pruning your tree primarily for safety, our main goal is to remove dead or overtaxed branches that could break off and fall at any moment, damaging your home or a family member who happens to be below. We will also remove branches that may have grown to potentially interfere with power lines or block your driveway, risking damage to your vehicle. Street tree pruning is also necessary to ensure that drivers are provided with safe travel environments.
  • Health: If you have sick, rotting, or insect-infested wood, you will want us to get rid of it as soon as possible. Removing this diseased wood will allow your tree to continue to grow in a healthy fashion and help it better withstand challenging weather conditions.
  • Aesthetics: Gnarled and twisting branches are often unattractive, especially on huge trees. They also can block your view of the rest of the landscape or the surrounding environment. We can prune your tree so that it looks better and more natural, stimulates flower production and improves your view of your surroundings.
  • Structure: If you have young trees that you wish to grow into big and healthy ones the right way, we can prune to correct the growth rate, branch spacing, strength of attachment and other features related to proper growth.
  • Cleaning: We can clean up your tree by removing dead, falling-off or sick branches while leaving the live, healthy branches unharmed.
  • Thinning: Too much branch crowding can block light and circulation and increase stress on the tree. Thinning can give your tree a little more room to breathe and take in sunlight.
  • Restoration: We can use pruning techniques to improve the appearance and structure of trees.

Pruning on Two Property Lines

A question we are often asked is about pruning and tree removal services on dual properties. Mature trees can often bend over a property line with branches overhanging into a neighbor’s yard. So, what are the common tree removal practices for cutting your neighbor’s overhanging tree? We have got you covered!

  • Regarding encroaching branches from your neighbor’s tree on your yard, you have the right to trim them up to your property line without their consent.
  • If you intend to fully remove a tree in your neighbor’s yard or one that extends into your yard, you must get consent from your neighbor. This typically involves completing a consent form that requires signatures from both parties involved.
