Use a Durham Tree Trimming Service to Increase the Beauty of Your Property
The most obvious benefit of using a Durham tree trimming service is that it makes your trees look significantly better. Your well-groomed trees and shrubs make a statement. If you’re a business, it tells your customers that you pay attention to detail and that quality matters. As a homeowner, you protect your property values as well as enjoy the beauty of a well-maintained yard. Our experienced team of Durham tree trimming professionals knows what to cut – and what to leave – to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing results.
Use a Durham Tree Trimming Service to Promote Tree Health and Growth
Pruning isn’t just for beauty. It’s also for health and structure. Sometimes due to disease or spending too much energy trying to grow in an unhelpful direction, trees develop weaknesses. When this happens, the affected part may need to be removed so that the rest of the tree can thrive.
Understanding how trees develop in terms of growth potential and structure is essential in proper trimming. Different species of trees and shrubs have different tendencies both in terms of how they grow – and often how they fail. At Rich’s Durham tree service, it’s our job to keep these things in mind and apply proper pruning techniques for the good of your trees.
Knowing which branches to take and which to leave is critical in tree care, but the method of removing them can also make a difference to the overall health of a tree. Removing a limb improperly can be a traumatic event that sends a tree into shock or leaves scarring, which is something we want to avoid. The training that the team at Rich’s Tree Service has received means that when they remove a limb, they know how to do it in such a way that the impact on any tree is minimized. You can think about them as expert tree surgeons, removing bad parts of a tree so that the good can survive and thrive for years to come.
Use a Durham Tree Trimming Service to Reduce Hazards
The safety of people and property is a significant reason to use a professional Durham tree trimming service. Not only does having an experienced pro do the work limit the danger to those involved in the actual trimming of a tree (which is not insignificant), but keeping on top of tree maintenance decreases the odds that property owners will need to call us for emergency tree removal because a weak branch or tree has given way.
Most – though not all – hazards for which pruning is a remedy are relatively predictable. Factors which affect our trimming strategies include:
…to name a few.
In short, a Durham tree pruning service keeps your landscape beautiful, trees healthy, and people and property safe. To schedule an evaluation of your trees, give us a call today.

This is the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration, improve air movement, and lessen weight to reduce stress on the tree structure and curate an environment conducive to the health of the tree and other plants in the area. Strategic thinning has the benefit of improving the look of a tree, as well.
Elevating involves the removal of lower branches to provide greater clearance from the ground, which may be needed in an area with traffic or to encourage other growth further up the tree.
Crown reduction decreases the size of the profile size of a tree using proper cuts, thereby preserving appearance, health, and structure.
Selective removal of limbs in the crown to allow for a specific view – a great alternative to tree topping.
This technical term refers to a less common pruning technique that involves the yearly removal of all new growth. Pollarding has the effect of restricting a tree’s height.

There are several reasonable techniques utilized for pruning fruit trees, each with a very different outcome.

What People Online Are Saying About Rich’s Durham Tree Trimming Service
"I…have two beautiful cherry trees (affectionately named Ethel and Myrtle) that were probably planted in 1951 when my home was built. They are wonderful examples of their species and they put on quite a show every spring. Neighbors stop and take in their splendor while kids beam with delight as the pink petals gently fall and drift like snow. But as magnificent as they are the trees are a little fragile at their age, so I want to help them thrive for years to come. I can't imagine entrusting their care to anyone else." – Tony
"It's always a pleasure to write a five-star review for an outstanding company and the crew the Rich's Tree Service sent out went way above and beyond what I expected. Michael came out and gave me a quote that was very reasonable and was a lot less than I have paid other tree services in the past. And since I am not a repeat customer for any of those other guys, that ought to give you some idea about my level of satisfaction with them. These guys worked very hard, did exactly what I needed done (and more)...cleaned up so completely when they were done that you'd never even know they were here (except for how airy things look after a much needed pruning. I don’t know if these two are typical of the guys Rich's employs or if I lucked out and got their two best guys. But I couldn't be happier with the results/price/service/promptness/everything!" – Frank
"Rich and his crew are experts in trees. We have used them for specialty pruning over 12'. We are always impressed with their promptness, friendliness and knowledge. We totally trust them with our landscape. We have had them remove large trees close to structures with no worries :) Would definitely use again, especially since they are locally owned and operated!" – Marie
"I have been using Rich's Tree Service since 1999 at two different homes in Northeast Portland. My Beaumont neighborhood home had a spectacular liriodendron tree, and Rich kept it in beautiful shape so that the blooms were plentiful every year. My current home in Irvington has a large-scale Japanese maple on the corner, probably from around 1916 at the time of construction or perhaps earlier. It is a dramatic, twisting, sculptural tree, and I am so happy that Rich's works to keep it in great shape--they even move the hanging swing every few years to prevent limb damage! I always refer friends to Rich's and appreciate the special coupons that are sent once or twice a year--thanks so much, Rich!" – Jan
"Rich is a great arborist. I have used 10 - 12 different companies and he is the best…He is honest and mid-range as far as cost. If you want someone cheap that will top your trees and make them look like trash don't call Rich because he won't do this type of work. He looks to find the best solution for the client and the health of their trees. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON ANYONE ELSE!!!" – Paul
