Trees can live a very long time if they are well planted at the right place and in the right way. Trees also suffer from diseases and also get infected by insects. Under certain conditions, a tree can be treated by simply pruning or by trimming the branches which are broken or infected. Sometimes we are required to trim away the branches which might be obstructing the visibility on your street or a desired view. Overhanging branches will also be required to be trimmed.
As discussed, there are many reasons to do tree trimming: the primary reason is the overall maintenance and health of your trees. Sometimes branches grow unevenly and are crossing or rubbing to restrict growth of others. Another reason for branch removal or trimming is that the canopy becomes overly full and raised, and is required to be trimmed to give more vertical clearance so that more sunlight can reach the ground as well as the rest of the tree.
Though it is always advisable to prune or trim on a timely (and seasonal) basis, as soon as it is required to keep the health of the tree. But, late fall or winter is considered to be the most suitable time for trimming. During this time the sap will not be running and insects will also be inactive which in return help you to prevent any tree infection due to trimming.
There are different methods of doing tree pruning. The first one is crown thinning in which you cut branches which are hanging at the bottom of the tree to make the upper center part of the tree look thinner. The other way is by trimming branches to give a V-shape to the tree. While thinning the crown you should always keep lateral branches as even as possible, especially when you are trimming a young tree.

Trees are the most important feature in your yard. They add beauty and grace and provide that thing that we all kind of need...oxygen!

Removing a tree and its stump will require handling of underground cables, sewer or gas lines, which can be damaged if tree removal is not done carefully. You should also consider distance of the tree from your home. If they are too close than you should chop the tree in parts so that it doesn’t fall on your house. Distance should be well covered for your neighbor’s house or other property. It is better to discuss your plan with neighbors to avoid them being upset.
You should also confirm with your contractor if their insurance covers the injury to the worker or any damage to the property. It is always advised to hire an insured company to avoid any financial penalties on you due to any accident. All you need to do is request their "Certificate of Insurance" which shows their entire commercial policy and coverage limits.
