How to trim a tree

Trees add beauty to a neighborhood and can help increase home values, which is exactly why landscape designer Brent Green has planted over 400 of them in his community.

To keep those young trees looking good, Brent says it's important to trim then on a regular basis. Trimming large mature trees can be dangerous and is better off left to professionals. One of the biggest hazards you can find in a tree is electrical wires.

When trimming small, newly planted trees start with the lower branches first. Thinning out the branches in the middle help the trees withstand harsh winds and improve overall air circulation.
