Tree Pruning

Pruning your trees on a regular basis keeps them healthy and beautiful. In addition to maintaining the aesthetic beauty of your trees, there are a number of reasons why pruning is essential. Maintenance pruning to improve the health and structure of the tree’s appearance is essential, as is hazard reduction restoration after storms or other damage.

These are several benefits to implementing a program to maintain and prune your trees and shrubs. Removing wood decay, fungi and bacteria which are food sources for insect vectors, as well as Live-branch removal for increased sunlight and air circulation, are imperative for your tree’s health. Tree pruning also allows for proper and ideal growth, as well as the preferred structural aesthetic for your trees. It reduces the need for structural support and reduces the potential for costly problems. Let’s walk your property together and discuss short and long term tree pruning and tree trimming programs with you.

Maintaining the Health and Beauty of Long Island’s Trees

Trees are a valuable part of your Long Island property. They add to the curb appeal of your home, they provide welcoming shade, and they’re just beautiful to look at. Like any other element of your landscape design, trees need to be properly maintained, and routine trimming and pruning is a vital part of tree maintenance.

At Jones Tree and Plant Care, our certified arborist, Thomas Jones, and our entire team of professionally trained landscape designers have been maintaining the trees of Long Island property owners for more than a decade. Our tree trimming and pruning services are reliable, affordable, and will dramatically improve the health and beauty of your trees.

The Importance of Trimming and Pruning Your Trees

Fruit trees, ornamental shrubs, evergreens, and even young trees; all wood landscape plants need to be trimmed and pruned from time to time. Tree trimming and pruning provide a number of benefits, including:


  • Enhanced appearance. Trees and shrubs are constantly growing and if that growth isn’t maintained, their natural beauty will be diminished. Trimming and pruning involves the removal of overgrown, dead, or infected branches and limbs and gives them a more uniform appearance. Professional tree pruning will not only enhance the beauty of your trees, but it will improve the appearance of your entire landscape.
  •  Improved health. Pruning and trimming does a lot more than improve a tree’s aesthetic appeal; it also improves its health. Overgrown branches can reduce the airflow and sunlight the entire structure receives. By cutting those branches back, your trees will get the air and light that are so crucial to their health. Additionally, removing excess branches and limbs ensures that vital nutrients are properly distributed throughout the entire tree, thus supporting healthy growth.
  • Damage prevention. When trees and shrubs are left untamed, they can actually inflict damage on themselves. As branches and limbs grow, they can cross paths and rub against one another, which can result in serious damage. Sun exposure and airflow is reduced when the canopy is too dense and increases the risk of disease. Routine pruning will help to prevent your trees from becoming damaged.
  • Improved safety. An overgrown tree can be a serious safety hazard. Overweight limbs can impact the stability of the entire tree. Diseased, damaged, or dead branches are structurally unsound. A strong (or even mild) gust of wind or a rain, snow, or ice storm can knock down limbs or the entire tree and cause serious damage. Power lines can be pulled down, windows can be broken, cars, fences, other outdoor structures – and even your roof – can be extensively damaged. Fallen limbs could potentially fall on a person or pet and cause severe injuries. Having your trees trimmed will minimize the risk of costly property damages and serious physical injuries.
