Benefits of pruning

Regular pruning and trimming can help to improve the health and lifespan of your trees, as well as promote healthy growth and development.


It can also help to prevent damage to your property from falling limbs from storms both in the winter and summer months.


In addition, tree pruning and trimming can help to improve the overall appearance of your property, increasing its curb appeal and value.

How it Works

Types of Tree Pruning

When you contact us for tree pruning and trimming services, we'll start by assessing the health and size of your trees. This allows us to determine the best course of action for each tree, ensuring that it receives the care it needs to thrive.

Each tree is unique, its age, size and location will help determine what sort of pruning process is appropriate to help meet your goals. The main types of pruning we offer are:

  • Structural Pruning: This type of pruning is typically used on younger trees to help them grow into a good form. Broken and dead branches are removed, and strong leaders are established to help ensure proper form and growth for your landscape.
  • Crown Cleaning: Removal of dead, broken, dying, crossed, rubbing or diseased branches from the trees crown. Small growth issues are addressed before they become bigger ones down the road. This is the typical pruning requested.
  • Crown elevation: For issues with clearance on your sidewalk, driveway, street or lawn.
  • Restoration pruning: Fixing of the trees canopy usually caused by storm or mechanical damage. This type of pruning typical happens over several visits to help restore the crown.

Signs That Your Trees Need Pruning or Trimming

Regular pruning or trimming is generally advantageous for most trees. It's essential to eliminate broken, diseased, rubbing, and crossing branches to improve the health of your trees and ensure the safety of your family.

frequently asked questions about pruning and trimming

what is the cost to prune and trim trees in Calgary?


Prices range from $300 - $1500, factors are the size and species of the tree on a per job basis.

Should I hire a arborist to prune and trim my trees?


an arborist is a specialized tree professional who has undergone training in tree care and pruning practices. Arborists are knowledgeable about tree species and the proper tree care maintenance practices that can be specific to them.

If my trees are small do they need to be pruned?


Absolutely. When trees are young is the best time to set them up for success in your landscape and address any growth defects before they become bigger, more costly problems in the future.
