Tree Trimming


Mt. Vernon Tree can increase the value of your house and landscape by trimming and maintaining your existing trees and shrubs.

An unhealthy, shaggy, or spooky appearance can develop if trees & landscape plants are not maintained.

  • Eliminate a shaggy or spooky appearance from your trees
  • Remove hazardous or unwanted deadwood
  • Thin, shape, or elevate lower limbs

Proper tree trimming is an easy and inexpensive way to give your home and landscape a makeover. Trimming and elevation can allow more light into your windows and expose the architectural details of your home.

Trimming Oak and Elm Trees

Oak and Elm trees should be trimmed in the dormant season to reduce the possibility of Oak Wilt Disease, & Dutch Elm Disease.

When Trimming a Tree Isn’t Enough

Part of an Arborist’s job is to assess the health & safety of a tree, thinning and corrective pruning can help prevent breakage from storms and decay. Sometimes trunk decay or V-crotches (from co-dominant stems) are a potential hazard. Tree support systems (bracing and cabling) can help support and secure multi-stemmed trees.


Elevation is the practice of removing lower branches from the lower crown of a tree to provide clearance for pedestrians, vehicles, buildings, or to improve aesthetics. This is the most recognized and commonly practiced form of tree trimming/pruning.
