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.

They trimmed 7 trees and removed the big dead tree over my house without any damage. I wouldn't use anyone else! Not only did they do a great job but they were the best price out of all the other companies.

No longer will I use “gardeners” to trim my tree. I have a Brazilian Pepper tree that I wanted to have inspected by a professional arborist. Turns out my tree has been trimmed incorrectly for some time.

I got a very reasonable quote to trim a large tree (nearly half what a couple other services quoted), and a great offer for removal of other trees, hired them, and am very happy with the work they did. Fast, clean, and courteous. I definitely recommend them and would use them again!

Once again Tom at Tip Top Arborists and his Team did not Disappoint. They trimmed my 2 Pine Trees, roses, laid bark in flower bed and my yard looks wonderful. When I wanted a little more off of the Pine Trees they came out to Acton a second time at no extra charge.
