Benefits of Tree Trimming & Pruning

Charleston Tree Experts offers a full variety of tree pruning and tree trimming applications depending on your needs and desires.


Our pruning services include the removal of broken, damaged, diseased, dead and weakened branches on both mature and young trees for protection of property, landscape and the trees themselves.

Tree care of this type can prevent disease-causing fungi from infecting and penetrating other areas of your tree. The reduction or removal of live branches is often necessary to improve tree structure by reducing wind-sail.

Young Tree Pruning

Pruning young trees, known as developmental tree pruning, is performed to enhance tree structure. This important tree care procedure helps ensure that your young trees have an aesthetic appearance, desirable branch architecture and structural integrity.

Proper pruning of trees when they are young reduces the potential of costly problems, potential for tree failure and the need for supplemental support as your landscape matures.

Appearance and Restoration

Pruning for aesthetics and restoration is essential for maximizing the beauty of tree colonnades, formal plantings and to assist with landscape maintenance. In particular, we advocate aesthetic and structural tree care for mature trees when the characteristic form of trees has deteriorated.

Reducing Risk

Pruning can help in “storm proofing” your trees and the danger of falling branches. This is particularly a concern for trees along driveways, pedestrian paths, recreational areas, and surrounding buildings. We also recommend pruning trees with low-hanging branches in certain areas to eliminate interference with pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Visual Access

Increase the value of your landscaping and trees by enhancing its beauty with vista/view pruning. Vista pruning creates visual access to waterways, marsh or other picturesque views, while maintaining privacy where desired.
