In the Houston area tree trimming can involve removing branches that could fall and cause injury or property damage. Also, trimming branches that grow into utility lines can prevent utility outtages. Some trees can also obstruct the line of site on streets and driveways, and trimming these trees can improve visibility. Lastly, the removal of key branches can improve airflow which will allow your trees to sustain the tough weather conditions in the Houston area.

The aesthetics of your landcape can also be improved through tree pruning. To improve aesthetics the natural form of the tree is enhanced through selective trimming of branches. For flowering trees pruning can be used to stimulate flower production. Having your trees pruned regularly will improve the overall look of your landscape.
