Eastside Tree Works

Pruning trees can reduce risk of storm damage to your Seattle or Eastside home.

Can you see some sky through your trees?

When the canopy of your trees is dense, the wind can’t blow through them and that wind resistance causes them to break or even bring down the entire tree. 

All it takes is one of our famous Seattle storms to blow in and put your home and family in danger from falling branches.   You can see there are more reasons to trim your trees than to simply keep them looking nice.

Whether the trees around your home are growing out of control and becoming a safety issue or you just want to keep them healthy, Eastside Tree Works offers all kinds of tree pruning services to Seattle and the Eastside communities, from Bothell to Kent.

From canopy cleaning to thin or raise the crown, removing dead or diseased branches, to shaping and fine pruning; we will keep your trees looking their best. Our crews are experienced in all types of pruning for both maintenance and hazard reduction safety.

Did you know tree trimming can reduce potential hazards?

Without regular tree trimming, tree limbs will grow beyond their proper length and can come into contact with power lines.  This can cause all sorts of electrical problems, including outages, power surges, electrical spikes and fires.

These wayward branches and limbs can also weaken over time, which makes them more susceptible to breaking and possibly falling on a person or car passing by, even your home.

In addition to the potential injury they can cause, they can also be a liability to you – a headache you most definitely don’t want.  To keep everyone safe and reduce your chances of an unexpected accident, call for your free estimate on tree trimming.

Why do healthy trees need pruning?

With skilled tree care, your healthy trees will remain healthy longer.  Proper pruning allows more air to flow through the tree canopy, which is beneficial since resistance to wind can cause branches to break and even bring down the entire tree. 

In other trees, thinning branches lowers the overall humidity, which can help prevent fungal infections on the leaves and stems.

Pruning not the same for all trees

 It’s important to have a knowledgeable arborist working with your trees since individual tree species have different needs.

 Some trees respond well to more aggressive pruning, while other trees require a gentle touch.  With our more than 100 years of combined experience in the field of arboriculture, we know the best methods to ensure your trees live longer.

Specialty services include pruning fruit trees

We are experts on all fruit tree pruning, including ornamental, fruit bearing and any other NW species. As with all trees, regular pruning is needed for your apple, cherry and other fruit trees to stay healthy.

Likewise, not all fruit trees are the same so only a certified arborist knows which methods to use so your trees will not be damaged and keep producing fruit year after year.

Shrub and hedge trimming

Regular trimming and pruning of your hedge or shrubs keeps them in control, healthy and looking nice. We trim all types of hedges:  big, small, round, square, pillars, globes, topiaries, etc. 

Not trimming or pruning on a regular basis may cause them to grow in with uncontrolled shape.

“I was extremely happy with Eastside Tree Works. They did a major pruning that included a lot of different kinds of trees -- conifers, deciduous trees, Japanese maples and more.They came when they said they would and the people they sent were extremely careful and well-trained.

They were sensitive about not ruining my trees and did not butcher them.  They were very customer-focused . . .They made sure that they did everything I wanted and, if there was anything extra that I needed done, they did that, to.”
