Maintenance & Safety
Our experts know what to look for when it comes to the safety of your trees when pruning. The purpose of pruning is to make sure that dead tree branches, infected branches, and problematic branches are removed. Branches that are decaying or dead are most likely to fall and cause damage to your property or family members. We identify and remove any branches that are a safety hazard, while maintaining the health and integrity of the tree.
Tree pruning is one of the best ways you can ensure your trees grow properly and thrive. Uneven weight distribution of branches is another factor that can compromise the health of the tree. Our experts can even out lopsided trees for both vanity and safety purposes. Additionally, thinning out the crown of the tree promotes air circulation and facilitates healthy growth. Every tree is different, and we work diligently to take into account all of the factors unique to your landscape and the trees present on your property.

Tree Pruning Service FAQs
Curious to learn more about tree pruning in SW Portland? Below are the answers to some of our most common questions. If you are ready to request tree pruning in SW Portland or any city close by, give our team a call now!
1 - When is the Best Time of Year to Request Pruning?
You can request tree pruning from Topline Tree Service in any season. Most trees can be pruned year-round as long as it is done properly. Winter can be one of the best times to prune since the leaves have shed and the entire architecture of the tree can be seen. With the branches exposed, the presence of mold, cracks, and other symptoms can be observed. If you are able to, we encourage you to schedule yearly pruning in the Fall or Winter before the trees bloom again in Spring.
2 - How Often Should I Have My Trees Pruned?
Depending on the age and type of tree, pruning should occur at least every 2-4 years. As a precaution, you may want to request an inspection at least once a year to determine if extra pruning or TLC is necessary. Our experts can help set an appropriate pruning schedule that fits your needs and the needs of your trees.
3 - What is the Difference Between Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning?
Tree pruning is often confused with tree trimming. Tree pruning is for trees and shrubs, while trimming is for shrubs and hedges. Trimming is mostly used for aesthetic purposes for overgrown bushes and also ensures the shrub or hedge grows perfectly. Tree pruning is performed to protect a tree’s health by getting rid of dead, infected, or loose branches.
4 - Why is Tree Pruning Important?
- Appearance – Professional pruning helps trees keep their shape, appearance, and beauty. With just the right amount of pruning, your trees will not only look beautiful, but stay in healthy shape for years to come.
- Safety – It can be hazardous to have trees on your property that are dead or dying, have broken limbs, infiltrate walking paths or driveways, or have branches that are hitting the side of your house.
- Health – Tree pruning is one of the best ways you can care for your trees and improve their well-being. Cutting off infected or broken branches is ultimately beneficial to the tree. For example, one common pruning procedure known as ‘crown thinning,’ promotes airflow throughout the tree and improves its health.
5 - Can I Prune My Tree Myself?
While you may be able to easily clip or trim a stubborn branch that is out of place, any trimming more extensive than this should be handled by a professional. Topline Tree Service has experienced tree pruners that can identify problems that an untrained eye cannot. If you need more than just a small branch removed, we recommend getting in touch with our experts. Tree pruning is not typically a DIY process and it is much safer — and wiser, to leave this process to our experts. It is also worth noting that some tree pruning procedures require a permit, even if the pruning seems minor. We can help you navigate the permit process and assist with any necessary pruning.
