When To Have Your Trees Trimmed

Although many homeowners like to take on the task of trimming the trees on their property themselves, it’s often unsafe and can harm the health of your tree as well. Trimming should always be done when the tree is dormant, and careful planning must go into deciding which branches can come off, and where they should end.

Dormant Season

Yes, you can technically trim trees any time of the year, but there are some severe consequences of doing so. Instead, only trim during the trees dormant season, so it has the best chance to recover from the loss of limb.

Identifying Branches to Trim

When you look at your trees and see weak, narrow-angled, or V-shaped branch connections, then it's time to have your tree trimmed. The lateral branches should have an angle that's roughly half to three-quarters of the diameter of the stump where it meets the branch.

In other words, if your branch looks to be significantly hefty for the angle, it probably needs some help.

Leaning Trees

Leaning trees need immediate help because without trimming it’s likely that they could quickly become a dangerous risk. Although pruning during a tree’s younger years can help guide them to grow straight and full, a leaning tree can benefit from a similar treatment.

Always call a professional tree trimmer as they can help guide your tree in the right direction and safely trim away the problematic branches.

Safety Concerns

Aside from leaning trees, there are other safety concerns such as rot and disease. If you notice the tell-tale signs of rot or disease, you should call a Long Beach Tree Experts immediately.

Long Beach Tree Experts can help diagnose the illness of your tree and whether or not it poses a health risk to your other trees or plants. 

For signs of rot or disease that could become safety concerns watch out for:

  • Caverns or hollows in the trunk of the tree
  • ​Dead branches
  • Insect infestation
  • Exposed or lifted roots
  • Leaning
  • Crossed or rubbing branches

These things all play a role in identifying the general tree health. Trimming trees is dangerous, and only professionals should interfere with trees natural growth pattern. Any of the above signs indicate that you need the help of a certified arborist.

Palm Tree Removal

Do you have a palm trees on your property that need removing? Palm trees are one of the types of tree we specialize in removing here at Long Beach Tree Experts. Removing trees is a time consuming and tedious task to have to complete on your own, and palm trees are especially difficult to remove since you’d have to take them out directly by the roots. Palm trees have a very complex and stubborn root system that spreads itself far and wide with knotted tendrils, making them particularly difficult to remove for any regular home owner. The proper equipment and know-how is essential to being able to swiftly and efficiently remove your palm trees without any trouble and in complete safety.

It’s particularly important for you to hire a specialist to remove your palm trees if you have a bug infestation in your palm trees, or the trees are rotten or dying. Dying trees can be unpredictable, and fall apart in places you wouldn’t expect, putting the people around in immediate danger. Releasing bugs out of the trees could cause them to infest your house and the rest of your property.

Lucky for you, at Long Beach Tree Experts we have some of the best equipment and teams for palm tree removal in the area. Our palm tree removal specialists are on call and ready to take care of your palm tree removal needs today!

Queen Palm Removal Experts

The queen palm tree is a large tree as far as palm trees are concerned. A queen palm can reach 50 feet tall and their canopy can get to 25 feet wide. A queen palm tree is a very heavy and dense tree. The weight of this type of tree is something that needs to be considered when removing a queen palm tree, since it can easily damage your house or nearby structures. 

Any homeowner considering removing a queen palm on their property must always call for a professional tree service tree company that can provide a safe and efficient removal service. A good tree company will have the proper equipment and experience for this type of removal, and by hiring the experts the homeowner will save on both time and possible damage.

There are several steps taken in removing a large palm tree. The process involves cutting it in sections down from the top and working down due to its weight and size. After the majority of the trunk is cut down, then the root-ball needs to be removed as well. Queen palm tree root systems are typically as wide as its canopy. In some cases, heavy machinery will have to be brought in to remove a large palm tree stump. The whole process can take a few hours when done properly. ​

Tree Trimming Long Beach

Many homeowners will go years without thinking of calling a tree service company. However, trees may need regular maintenance. Tree trimming services provide the opportunity for an arborist to assess the health of the tree and make trimming decisions that will cultivate a long life for the tree.

Homeowners can schedule tree trimming services annually, so they don’t have to worry about revisiting the same concern of a tree leaning or possibly have a disease with years between a professional tree service. Unfortunately, when homeowners wait for these apparent signs of disease or rot, there is little left to do to preserve the tree. Calling to schedule regular tree trimming services is the only way to ensure that a tree can have a long and fruitful life.

Property owners should schedule tree trimming services more often. Properties which have a large network of trees may carry more risk of a disease spreading quickly or some of the trees becoming deficient in nutrients. Because large properties with trees will often have a diverse collection of plant life, it is imperative for property owners to work with arborists. Professional tree technicians can create a maintenance plan for the entire property.

For example, any property owner that has Queen Palms or Mexican Palms on their property should schedule very frequent trimming services.

Always call for tree trimming services if:

  • The tree is leaning heavily.
  • The tree has any branches at risk of falling.
  • The tree has obvious signs of insect infestation.
  • The tree has signs of rot such as hollows, or lifted roots

These are only some of the signs. If you have any cause for concern about the health of any tree on your property, or are searching locally for "tree trimming near me" contact our Long Beach Tree Trimming Experts today. Property owners who know that an arborist has not evaluated the trees on their property in some time should schedule an appointment as well to ensure there are no immediate concerns.

Know the Warning Signs

In any of these situations, tree removal may be the only option that will guarantee the safety of those nearby. If you notice any of these issues with a tree on your property, call a certified arborist immediately to schedule tree removal.

Cracks and Cavities

Although it's nice to imagine a big owl nestled into the hollow of a tree, it's an apparent sign of disease or rot. Cavities, cracks, and hollows in a tree, the branches or the trunk, can indicate that the tree has been sick for a very long time.

Each tree does have a network of nooks or crannies. But a crack is a definitive split, and a cavity is apparent. These may be the only warning signs that something is wrong with the tree at all. During an assessment, an arborist may ask you to consider tree removal if the internal structure of the tree can no longer support the weight of the crown.

Visible, Lifted, and Damaged Roots

A tree should have a root system that is completely underground, although there are times when you might see the occasional root grazing the top of the soil. But, a tree with poor structure will often have many roots pulled away from the ground or exposed and damaged.

If you can see any part of the root system near the base of the tree, it’s important to contact help immediately. Schedule a consultation with a professional to evaluate if your tree can continue to sustain its weight.


Another tell-tale sign that a tree is ready to fall or become a significant safety risk, leaning trees are at risk of causing severe property damage or personal injury and require removal.

It's true that most trees don't necessarily grow, "straight" but if you step back far enough to see the base and the top of the crown all at once, you should see a pretty straight tree. If it leans slightly, you may not have to call for tree removal. But if there is a distinct lean, tree removal may be the only option available.

California Trees & Tips on Care and Maintenance

California, and Long Beach especially, plays host to a massive variety of tree species. Homeowners can choose which trees to keep in their yards and should choose trees that they are comfortable maintaining. Consider these tips for caring for your trees!

1. Palm Trees

There are a few types of palm trees in California, but they all do generally require the same maintenance. Palm trees are not native to California and require regular water access. Unlike desert plants, palm trees benefit from an irrigation system that keeps moist earth close to the root system while still having a lot of drainage access.

2. Oaks

Oak trees provide nearly everything they need to survive. The downfall that many California homeowners make is the raking of the leaf litter. To help Oaks thrive in California, leave the leaf litter around the base of the tree, and water only a little more than usual during a drought.

3. Fruit Trees

Homeowners in California love their lemon, and orange trees. It’s vital that these homeowners carefully prune and tend to these trees while they’re young, and during every dormant season. Always contact a professional to prune fruit trees, call Long Beach Tree Experts for help with your trees!
