Steadfast Tree Care, a professional tree services provider to Ashland and central Virginia property owners, has explained the difference between tree pruning and tree trimming in a newly released blog post. The article is titled, “Essential Knowledge on Tree Trimming in Ashland,” and explains that tree trimming is the removal of overgrown branches of trees, while tree pruning involves the removal of dead of diseased branches from trees.

Both tree trimming and tree pruning are beneficial to the trees. Removing overgrown branches can enhance tree health because an overgrowth prevents enough sunlight from reaching certain parts of the tree. Getting rid of dead or diseased branches is good because it can help prevent the disease from spreading to other parts of the tree. This new blog post can be accessed at

Phillip Wood, a spokesperson for Steadfast Tree Care, says, “Despite the critical importance of trees to your property, we've found over the years that when it comes to trimming, the majority of homeowners (especially new ones) have no idea where to start.”

He continues, “Our team at Steadfast Tree Care wants to make sure you can benefit from trees that are healthy, attractive, and present a low level of risk to your home, your family, and even the other trees on your property. The said article offers a rundown of everything you need to know about tree trimming services near you, including why it's important to choose a tree trimming company with experience and expertise, no matter the size of the job.”

While trees are also plants, homeowners and other property owners tend to overlook trees when providing care for plants in their yard or garden. Trees don’t need watering except when they’re still very young, which is why it is easy for people to take trees for granted. However, trees also require some care, such as trimming or pruning, to ensure that they remain lively and strong for many years.

Tree trimming is also essential when tree limbs and branches are starting to become an obstruction on the property, such as when leaves and branches are touching the house or electrical wires. These could cause a short-circuit and/or a power interruption if they happen to touch and damage an electrical wire. And the branches can hit a part of the home, possibly causing damage, when there is a strong wind such as during a storm. People who are interested may also take a look at previous press releases issued by the company, such as

Tree trimming and pruning will also make trees look more attractive. However, it is essential to have this done by experts who are really knowledgeable and well experienced as to which branches or tree limbs to cut to avoid damaging the health of the tree. “Topping,” is usually offered by tree service companies but it may not always be needed and may even harm the tree. That is why it is essential to hire the services of a tree service company with a team of tree experts.

And then there are times when tree removal is needed. Once again, tree experts are required to do this task safely. Tree removal is usually done for a dead tree on the property. Ensuring that a truly qualified tree service company will do the tree removal is vital because there are possible negative consequences if the job is not done properly. The tree may be brought down the wrong way and cause damage to house structures and vehicles in the property. Insufficient training, preparation and technique can put the family members in danger. And the damage caused by the tree may run into the tens of thousands of dollars of liability.

A certified tree removal company like Steadfast Tree Care will first make a number of considerations before starting the task. For instance, they will first determine the optimal angle for bringing the tree down to minimize risk. They will also determine all of the risk factors involved before bringing the tree down.
