    What are tree shaping services?

    Tree shaping services are specifically focused on the aesthetic appearance of the tree. This is ideal for those who wish to tidy up their property and improve the look of their trees. When left to their own devices, trees can grow rather wild and unruly. In the wild, this looks beautiful, but in your home, it can become a bit of a nuisance, particularly if you like to keep your garden looking clean.  

    Tree shaping can involve thinning the crown of the tree (the canopy), and removing a number of branches, whilst trimming the others to a reasonable size. Of course, there is a limit to how much you can cut away. Trimming away too much of the tree in one go can cause significant trauma to the tree, which is not recommended. This is why you are best consulting with the professionals first if you are thinking about attempting to shape the tree by yourself.  

    Is tree shaping the same as tree pruning?  

    Yes and no. The same pruning techniques will be adopted when shaping a tree, but they are done for different reasons. Typically, tree pruning is used to cut away any dead, dying, diseased, or crossed branches from a tree. This helps to promote strong future growth, whilst also conveniently improving a tree’s appearance. 

    Tree shaping, on the other hand, is done specifically with the aesthetic appearance of the tree in mind. Again, the same techniques are often used, but the two services are different.  

    How often can I shape my tree?  

    Again, there is a limit to how much you can cut away from a tree before causing irreparable damage. Thus, tree shaping should be done carefully. If a professional arborist shapes your tree the once, you shouldn’t need to worry about it for at least another year. This will give the tree enough time to recover. In addition to that, a freshly shaped tree should hold its shape for a while, assuming that all of the branches will be growing at the same pace. That said, after a while, a tree may lose its shape and will thus require another tree shaping service in order to tidy it up.
