Why is tree trimming necessary?

There are many reasons why homeowners need to trim their trees. Sometimes it’s to resolve a tree dispute but more often it’s for these reasons:

  • Training young trees to grow in a certain direction
  • Thinning the crown to increase airflow
  • Improving the shape or silhouette of the tree to lower wind resistance and reduce the potential for storm damage
  • Clearing a house to eliminate roof damage or rodent access

Where do you trim trees?

We are licensed and insured to trim trees in these Southern California areas:

How will I know when to trim my tree?

One of our arborists can help decide whether or not a tree should be trimmed. They have the proper equipment and knowledge to safely trim tree branches in any of these scenarios:

  • Tree branches are rubbing against each other.
  • Tree branches are interfering with wires, building facades, gutters, roofs, chimneys, windows, or that obstruct streets or sidewalks.
  • Tree branches are exhibiting symptoms of disease and insect infections.
  • Tree branches are damaged, dead, weak or decaying.

What is the cost to trim a tree?

The cost of trimming a tree is based on factors such as location (do we have to climb it, or is it accessible to a bucket truck), the type of trimming to be performed, size and structures/targets under and around the tree.

Will you top my trees?

The simple answer is NO. Topping a tree is an injurious procedure to any tree, and it can lead to severe health and growth issues in the immediate and long term future. A tree should only be reduced using approved ISA/TCIA procedures.

We called Tip Top Arborists after having several quotes from companies that do tree trimming. Tip Top was actually cheaper than the companies that were not certified Arborists.

This is by far the best experience I have had with my trees and with the crew working on them. I had other tree trimming companies out for an estimate who didn't know the name or kind of tree I had on my property.
