Our Tree Technicians Prune With Precision

Trees have value that goes beyond their dollar worth.

We understand you might be worried about cutting a favorite tree. Luckily, Inexpensive Tree Care is an expert in tree pruning in Portland OR.

Think about tree pruning as if it were surgery for a tree. Pruning removes dead and diseased branches so that new and healthy branches can grow unimpeded.

Much like a surgeon, a tree pruner needs knowledge and the right tools to perform an operation. 

At Inexpensive Tree Care, we have years of experience caring for trees, and we know what keeps them healthy. We’ve been offering tree pruning services in Portland, Oregon, since 2003.

Our skilled experts preserve your tree’s health and beauty while removing unnecessary branches.

Before making a cut, we evaluate the situation. Among other considerations, we determine a tree’s age and species, and we examine its location and growth rate. Armed with this information,  we can prune the tree according to what’s best for the tree.

After everything is considered, we set to work making the necessary prunes and cuts. We don’t make a single cut unless it contributes to the overall health of the tree and the ecosystem of which it is a crucial and integrated part.

Of course, there will be times when a tree needs to be pruned so as not to threaten damage to a structure that is located nearby. If and when this situation arises, however, we recommend our tree trimming or tree removal services.

These particular tree services each have their own methods and determinations, and they differ from tree pruning in ways we’re happy to explain once we’ve reviewed the site and made our recommendations. More on this below.

In the meantime, here is some more information on our Portland, Oregon, tree pruning services, including information that we highly recommend you review. 

Remember, we are a tree service company that provides a wide range of Portland tree services (and surrounding areas, too!) Plus, we’re led by an experienced certified arborist, so you can trust that we will do an excellent job in and around your own personal urban forest.

We’re happy to discuss your tree care needs with you! Get in touch, and we’ll get started on an estimate for work that needs to be done for the trees on your property.

Preventative Tree Pruning Gives Diseased Trees a Chance to Thrive

Unhealthy or cracked branches can break, causing damage or injury as they fall. Disease, pests, and fungus can affect the whole plant or just a portion of it.

Pruning the unhealthy areas of a tree prevents the spread of disease. Cutting off the weak portions gives a tree a chance at health and improved growth. Preventative pruning means losing a branch or two, instead of needing to remove the whole tree in several years.

Call a Professional to Remove Dangerous Branches

Not every tree that needs pruning is suffering from disease. Overgrown trees can become a hazard. A branch that’s touching an electric line is unsafe. Branches overhanging your home or garage can come crashing down in a storm.

When a large tree has a dangerous branch that you think may be threatening to do damage to a home or other structure, call us for help. We have the equipment and experience to safely remove it, so it doesn’t become a danger to your home, family, and property.

Keep the Bloom on Flowering Trees

There is no single best time to prune trees. When done with skill, a tree can be cut at nearly any time of the year.

However, some trees are healthier when they’re pruned on a regular basis. Careful cutting can strengthen a tree or help keep it under control.

Some people prune trees to encourage a certain shape and limit their size. We recommend pruning most flowering trees right after the blooms fade.

Spring bloomers are often pruned in June. Prune summer-flowering trees either in winter or spring.
