    Tree Trimming Services


    Why is Tree Trimming important?

    It’s not uncommon for Kiwis to neglect trimming their trees. Often seen as an unessential expense, trimming trees tends to fall to the bottom of a priority list. However, there are multiple benefits to trimming and regular tree maintenance.

    Keep your tree healthy

    Trimming is an investment in the health and lifespan of your tree. By doing regular trimming, you are reducing overgrowth in your tree and hedge. This is important as trees with overgrowth become weak under the weight and are less likely to survive. Trimming creates a strong structure for your tree and helps to reduce further damage or over pruning. 

    Trimming your hedges and trees will also promote new growth. Well-maintained hedges can provide shade, privacy and help to filter noise. 

    Maintain appearance 

    Healthy and well maintained trees are beautiful. Adding shape, texture and colour to your garden and landscape, a regularly trimmed tree can enhance the value of a property. Without trimming, trees tend to look misshapen with uneven branches and growth. A trimmed tree can increase the light to your property as well as to the garden undergrowth.

    Although we tend to follow the natural shape of a tree when trimming, hedges provide an opportunity to get creative. Your hedge can be trimmed in a specific shape to create street appeal or visual enjoyment. 

    A necessary safety precaution

    Untrimmed trees can easily become hazardous. Dead branches and foliage may fall unexpectedly, injuring a person and damaging your property. Storms and cyclonic winds can increase this risk. Overgrowth can also become flammable and attract disease and pests. 

    Regular trimming enables your tree to thrive and reduces dangerous risks, however it’s best to leave it to the experts. 

    Why Use Professional Tree Trimming Services?

    When it comes to tree trimming, you may be tempted to have a go yourself. While this may sound like a great idea in theory, tree trimming is more complex in practice.

    Tree Care and Maintenance

    Trees have always been an important source of food, shelter, and oxygen for people. And in the modern times, many people have made use of trees as a means to add beauty to their land. It’s not uncommon to find a tree in most yards and even on the grounds of corporate offices and retail structures.

    But trees are also natural products and living organisms that grow, flourish, and then decay and die. It is a natural lifecycle that they all have to go through. And once trees start to decay, they can pose a danger to people and their property. Their branches can fall and cause damage, or the trees can become home to pests.

    We know the value of these amazing plants at Jim’s Trees. For years, we have been bringing tree care and maintenance services to our valuable customers. We have built up a reputation of high quality work that meets the strictest standards. We are committed to our customers and to meeting their needs for tree care.


    Tree and Hedge Trimming Services

    Trees have a value to your property that cannot be replaced. They provide natural shade and oxygen, and they bring beauty to your land. These natural forms of decoration are perfect for rural homes or metropolitan businesses, but after a while, they can start to pose a danger to the people and property around them.

    As trees begin to decay, they branches and trunks become weak and may potentially fall and cause damage. Trees that are not cared for can grow where they are not wanted, become unpleasant to look at and lose their luster very early.

    But by having your trees professionally pruned, you can keep them from growing over your windows or into your patio or porch. You can also keep them from overgrowing power lines and from posing a danger when sever storms hit the area.
