Thinning is recommended for evergreens such as large oaks, pines, cedars, redwoods and firs. Thinning removes dead wood and encourages new growth in the canopy. It promotes the health of the tree and - from a safety standpoint - reduces weight and wind resistance. Thinning also allows more light through the canopy and provides lovely filtered views.
Thinning can also be done to fruit and deciduous trees to remove suckers and encourage healthy new growth.
Thinning pine trees should only be done during the fall and winter months. When a pine tree is thinned in the spring or summer it will attract pine bark beetles, which feed on the sap and can kill a large pine tree in a few months.
What Our Customer's Say...
Dear M & M Tree Service. Your crew trimmed our trees on Tuesday. The head trimmer is an artist. He did such a beautiful job thinning and shaping our oaks. We are so pleased. The team was also very hard-working, professional and did a great job of cleaning up the site afterward. We are so pleased. We are recommending your service to all of our neighbors. Thank you.
