    Tree pruning (or tree-trimming) is the most common tree maintenance treatment we perform. Perhaps you’re mowing the lawn and find yourself having to duck under some low hanging branches. The wind could be causing branches of a tree to rub against your window. You might be unable to see past a shrub planted just outside of your living room window. All of these are reasons for pruning trees and shrubs, part of an overall effective tree trimming and tree maintenance program for your residential or commercial property in Ottawa.

    Professional tree pruning begins with an understanding of tree biology. There are several questions to consider before hiring a tree service professional for tree trimming, such as: how much to prune, when is the best time to prune, and why you should prune a tree. Count on Wright Tree Service in Ottawa for professional tree maintenance.


    Timely tree maintenance, tree trimming and tree pruning can improve the health and longevity of your trees, as well as reduce hazards, and increase the value of your property. Tree maintenance can include:


      Pruning of branches affected by storm damage or disease is important to maintain a healthy and safe property


      Tree trimming is effective both for controlling the size of your tree(s) as well as the direction of growth


      We’ll prune your young trees to ensure proper growth, leading to a beautiful & healthy tree for years to come

    Benefits of Having a Certified & Trusted Arborist Prune your Tree

    Tree pruning may seem like a simple task at first, but it can become quite complicated. If you don’t have a great knowledge of trees, you could end up cutting off too much of your tree or leaving improper cuts which could both lead to disease in your tree. You could also injure yourself by not taking proper safety precautions when dealing with falling branches and other hazards. Once you’re done pruning your tree you still have to collect all the debris and properly dispose of it.

    Our certified arborists know exactly which branches to cut and how to cut them to improve your tree’s health.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    See what our customers are asking us about tree trimming & tree pruning in Ottawa

    Tree trimming and tree pruning are similar processes but with different goals for your trees and shrubs. Tree pruning is done in order to remove dead, loose, infected, or decaying branches so that your tree can flourish properly. Tree trimming on the other hand is a primarily aesthetic process where appearances are the focus. Tree trimming is done to maintain a tree’s desired shape, to keep it away from hazards such as power cables, and to ensure it is not overgrown which can prevent proper growth of your tree.

    Since healthy trees depend on proper tree trimming and pruning, you want to make sure you get it done at the right time. We recommend trimming and pruning young trees every 2 years and older trees every 2 to 5 years. This will ensure your trees will thrive & grow. The best time to trim or prune trees is during its dormant seasons. Contact Wright Tree Service today if your trees are due for a trimming or pruning.
    Arborists believe in providing the best possible care to trees, ensuring they are healthy and can thrive. Topping trees injures and can kill trees, which is why certified arborists will not top a tree.

    Tree topping, also called hack-racking, heading, rounding over, or tipping is when the top of a tree is cut off, usually because the tree has grown too tall. Topping is harmful because topped trees grow too quickly, the new growth falls off easily, and the trees need a large amount of corrective pruning and care to stay alive. Topped trees are under added stress and have fragile shoots, making them vulnerable to storms, diseases, and pests. This makes topped trees a liability.

    If a tree isn’t pruned correctly it can cause a number of major problems including cankers, decay, and cracks, disease, and other tree defects. Tree branches can’t just be cut anywhere. There are areas of the tree which, if damaged, can cause serious health problems for your tree. Don’t risk causing harm to your tree, contact Wright Tree Experts today. We can help you remove your trees.

    Yes. While the damage caused by overpruning will not be repaired overnight, you can help your tree get through the many difficult days ahead by entrusting its care to professionals like Wright Tree Services.

    Provide sufficient fertilisation and water to support your Tree. Due to its reduced photosynthetic capacity, it is more crucial than ever that your plant has all the tools necessary for its food production readily available.

    Overpruning can only be remedied with expertise, time, and patience, so proceed with caution while pruning. Remove no more than the amount of canopy specified for the tree’s type and age. Also, resist the impulse to top your trees.
