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.
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.
Why have your trees pruned?
Improves their overall health
Makes them structurally stronger
Eliminate potential hazards
Decrease chance of storm damage
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.
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.
Pruning not the same for all trees
It’s important to have a knowledgeable arborist working on your trees as individual species have different needs.
Some trees respond well to more aggressive pruning, while other trees require a gentle touch. With our more than 150 years of combined experience, we know the best methods for better results.
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.”
