Tree Training with Trimming & Pruning

Professional arborist tree pruning and trimming improves plant health by removing dead, dying, broken and diseased branches to encourage healthy growth.  Trimming trees may also include cutting back branches that rub together or any branch stubs so the entire tree continues to grow strong, healthy, and in the desired direction.

Tree Trimming by Species

We prune a variety of tree species including but not limited to:

  • Oak Trees
  • Palm Trees
  • Pine Trees
  • Pecan Trees
  • Citrus Trees
  • River Birch
  • Palm Trees

Preventing Disease with Tree Pruning

Opening up the canopy to let light and air filter throughout the entire tree allows for increased foliage while decreasing the risk of tree diseases like root rot and oak wilt. Raising the canopy also allows for more height clearance and prevents wayward branches from touching your house and roof.

At the ground level, suckers and water sprouts weaken the wood and steal nutrients from the main tree.

By helping a tree establish one main tree and a dominant leader, you create a strong tree that’s ultimately able to withstand winter storms and high winds.

Corrective Pruning

Did another company over prune your trees? If they thinned out your tree, took too much from the crown, or trimmed the leader because they didn’t know better we can help. Our arborists can perform corrective pruning, trimming branches specifically to encourage thicker foliage and growth. We recommend professional arborist tree trimming every time to keep your trees healthy.

No Lion Tailing

Lion tailing is the practice of over-pruning a tree by removing all of the interior branches, leaving only small tufts of leaves at the top end of the branches. As the name suggests it looks like a lion tail. After a tree is pruned incorrectly using this method it is vulnerable to sunburn, malnutrition, and diseases.

We see it all the time, and it’s one of the reasons you should always hire professional tree pruning experts like Cody’s Tree Service, Inc. Please, don’t let an inexperienced landscaping company butcher your trees.

Tree Pruning Cuts

There are various types of common pruning cuts but the trim technique varies depending on the specific health and species of the tree. These tree shaping cuts include but are not limited to

  • Tree Thinning. This is the practice of thinning out dense foliage by removing entire branches encouraging remaining branches to grow stronger and longer.
  • Heading Cuts to Encourage Density. Crown cuts help to encourage denser sprouts and growth.
  • Cuts to Slow Tree Growth. It’s better to properly plan for a tree’s future growth and plant it in a suitable area than to attempt to slow its growth. But if the tree is already there, you can discourage growth by not watering it or fertilizing it. Pruning it in the summer will also help stunt its growth.
  • Tree Limb Removal. Sometimes it’s necessary to remove an entire tree limb in the pruning process. Tree limb removal becomes necessary for a handful of reasons; training a tree to grow in a certain direction, increasing the height of the lower tree canopy, and preventing injury from storm-damaged limbs falling to the ground.
  • Tree Surgeons. Our arborists provide precision pruning and trimming services that are right for each species. If your tree needs surgery or aggressive pruning cuts to remove branches, you can trust Cody’s Tree Service to do it properly.

Seasonal Tree Trimming & Pruning

When is the best time to trim trees in Texas?

Anytime between late fall and early spring is most beneficial for trimming or pruning. And even better, dormant pruning in late fall or winter saves time and money by helping with disease management. However, after a bad storm like we had in May 2024 with 100mph winds tree pruning and cleanup will be necessary to rid trees of broken and unstable branches for safety.

What is the Most Important Reason to Prune a Tree?

The most important reason to prune a tree is to promote health and structure. It is also essential to prevent tree crown failure. Removing dead leaves and branches and trimming appropriately can help prevent tree failure during strong winds or storms.

How Much Does it Cost to Trim a Tree?

The cost to prune a tree varies tremendously based on its location, condition, size, and type. However, our minimum to come out and assess your trees to see if they need pruning is $450.
