Tree Trimming FAQs

The typical cycle for trimming trees is anywhere from 3-5 years. This all depends on tree species, amount of branches removed, and aesthetic preference. If there are multiple trees on site it is most wise financially, to trim all trees at the same time, so the service intervals are not as frequent.

It is very important to know when your trees need to be trimmed. Trimming certain trees during the wrong time of the year can result in decking health or even death.

Below is a guide to the right timing for trimming Minnesota trees:

Later Winter/Early Spring

  • Apple Trees, including Crabapples, Hawthorne, and Mountain Ash

Trimming apple trees after early spring can put them at risk of the bacterial disease, fireblight.

Late Spring/Early Summer

  • Maple
  • Boxelder
  • Ironwood
  • Walnut
  • Butternut
  • Birch

These trees can suffer from flowing sap that can bleed if you trim them in late winter or early. To prevent bleeding, wait until later spring and contact an expert to ensure the timing is right.

Trees/Shrubs that need immediate pruning after blooming

  • Chokecherry
  • Clove Currant
  • Flowering Plum
  • Flowering Cherry
  • Forsythia
  • Juneberry
  • Lilac
  • Magnolia

The cost of your tree trimming is going to vary based on:

  • Number of branches being trimmed
  • Location of tree
  • What is underneath the tree

If a tree is overhanging a house, landscaping, or anything at risk of being damaged, the cost will increase due to time involved.

Taking off any live branches will cause stress but also stimulate more growth, especially in spring. It’s always safe to take off around 20% of the live foliage or leafy branches.


Under certain situations, we may trim a large percentage of a tree’s branches to keep it alive and avoid having to remove it. There are also circumstances where we may trim very little off the tree, such as a 100-year-old Oak tree that holds historical value on a property.

Balancing your tree canopy should be fairly simple. If you are having issues it may be because your tree has never been trimmed and you are struggling to find a good balance. Contact an Arborist right away to help.


If your tree canopy is interfering with other trees, houses, landscaping, etc an Arborist can help contour the canopy around the obstruction.

Yes, you can remove large branches hanging over your house. Contact an expert Arborist immediately to help determine the safest solution. If neglected, your house may be at risk for serious damage.

Cracked or split trees can be saved. It entirely depends on the severity of the situation. Consult with an Arborist to understand what options are available. They may be able to bolt and cable the tree together to help stop the spread of the crack or split.
