Tree Trimming Service For Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico

 Are your trees an eyesore and looking unkempt? Let us give them the makeover they need.

Tree trimming is a great alternative to removing a tree. A qualified arborist from A Plus Tree Service in Santa Fe, NM, is able to remove problematic branches from a tree, saving the rest of the tree. Or if you have an unsightly tree on your property, a knowledgeable tree expert will be able to give the tree a face lift by shaping the tree into a more ascetically pleasing form. Tree trimming is improving a tree in a targeted and detailed manner in order to increase the health, appearance and safety of the tree. Tree trimming is very common and both an art and science. To guarantee that your trees are pruned to the highest standards, we require that each of our employees be trained in proper pruning techniques and that they are knowledgeable in tree biology. The benefits of properly pruned trees include not only improved visual appeal, but increased safety and resistance to storm damage and better defenses against attack by pests and pathogens. Poorly conducted pruning can cause permanent damage, and can hasten the decline or death of a tree.

When you hire A Plus Tree Service, you hire the tree trimming experts. We are licensed, insured, and have ten years of tree trimming experience.

Tree Trimming FAQ

How often should my trees be pruned?
A tree should be considered for pruning every 2-5 years, depending on health, location, and growth rate. Consulting with a qualified arborist is the best option.

What is the best time of year to prune? 
Most trees can be pruned almost any time of year. There is a brief period of time in the Spring when tree sap is flowing fastest and the chances of tearing bark on a pruning cut are most likely. Winter is also a great time to prune trees and because it is our slowest time of year, we may be able to offer winter pruning discounts.
