Tree Trimming in Chattanooga

Tree Trimming in Chattanooga

tree trimming chattanoogaYou might be surprised to learn that tree trimming is one of the most common types of work that On Call Tree Service performs here in the Chattanooga area.

When you think of tree service, you often think of big, complicated jobs such as tree or stump removal – or emergency tree service to deal with storm damage. But even when it comes to safety and health, as well as looks, tree trimming is just as important.

Tree Trimming by Professionals

Careful, professional tree trimming is not just a concern for bonsai trees and Mr. Miyagi. It’s something that is important to the health of every tree. The trees in your yard are beautiful works of art. They’re what make your yard look so nice on a quiet spring morning and during the riotous color explosion that happens every fall here in the Chattanooga Valley. If your trees are not pruned and trimmed properly, it can lead to permanent damage that will be visible for the lifetime of your tree. Or even worse, lack of trimming can result in the premature death of your tree. Professional tree trimming done correctly is crucial.

Beauty and Health

Tree trimming can also help save trees that are suffering from disease. By carefully pruning away the diseased portion of a tree, we may be able to extend its lifetime and even help it to flourish again.

We can also trim trees that pose a threat to your home or to the safety of those who spend time in your yard. Loose, dead limbs are much heavier than they appear. And if they fall, they can do serious damage to your home or family. If you notice that your trees need emergency service, we’re ready and able to help quickly.

With the long, lush growing season in Chattanooga, not to mention our regular stormy weather, it’s time to stay on top of your tree trimming – especially for all of the large trees in your yard. Give us a call at On Call Tree Service today at 423.421.9146.


When to Prune or Trim Your Trees – Part 1

Chattanooga Tree Trimming

Chattanooga, TN has a very lush full spring and summer season. As you have probably seen, not properly trimming or pruning larger trees, or even mid sized trees can result in trees can cause trees to break apart or fall completely. Chattanooga has a fairly unpredictable weather pattern but most spring and summers see a lot of heavy rain and storms. Trimming and pruning your trees the proper amount at the proper times is key to ensuring the trees life and the safety and beauty of the trees and your landscape or property. Here are a few starter tips:

  1. For trees that bloom in spring, prune when their flowers fade.
  2. Trees and shrubs that flower in mid- to late summer should be pruned in winter or early spring.
  3. You can perform light pruning any time of the year, but branches will obviously be lighter when the leaves are off of the tree
  4. Pruning late in the year can help prevent fungus from taking over where you pruned and stimulate growth

Taking Care of New Trees – Part 4 – Pruning Young Trees

Chattanooga Tree Pruning

This is the final installment of the Taking Care of New Trees series – Pruning. We will deal with the best ways to prune and trim a new or young tree.

This is from Trees Are Good:

Proper pruning is essential in developing a tree with a strong structure and desirable form. Trees that receive the appropriate pruning measures while they are young will require little corrective pruning when they mature.

Keep these few simple principles in mind before pruning a tree:

  • Each cut has the potential to change the growth of the tree. Always have a purpose in mind before making a cut.
  • Proper technique is essential. Poor pruning can cause damage that lasts for the life of the tree. Learn where and how to make the cuts before picking up the pruning shears.
  • Trees do not heal the way people do. When a tree is wounded, it must grow over and compartmentalize the wound. As a result, the wound is contained within the tree forever.
  • Small cuts do less damage to the tree than large cuts. For that reason, proper pruning (training) of young trees is critical. Waiting to prune a tree until it is mature can create the need for large cuts that the tree cannot easily close.

Taking Care of New Trees – Part 3 – Watering Your Tree

Watering your tree

Part three of the “Taking Care of New Trees” Series is the Watering Your Tree.

Here is some good information pulled from Phytosphere:

Newly planted trees: Immediately after planting, all tree roots are in the original root ball area. Until new roots grow into the soil of the planting site, water the original root ball area and just beyond this area. The root ball area may dry out faster than the surrounding soil, so check the moisture in this area frequently for the first month or two after planting. See How to plant a new container-grown tree for more details on watering newly-planted trees.

A newly planted tree may take 1-2 years to become established. Larger container stock trees may take longer to become established than smaller stock.

Taking Care of New Trees – Part 2 – Staking

Staking your new tree

In this part, we are talking about Staking your new tree. Since you have planted it, you now need to make sure it stays upright. Here is some helpful info on how to do that.

Part Two – Staking:

This is a helpful excerpt from Better Homes & Gardens website.


You may need to stake newly planted trees, especially if you planted them as bare-root or if you have a hard time keeping them upright. Support them only for the first year or two; remove the stakes after that so your trees and shrubs can develop a sturdy trunk and root system.

Taking Care of New Trees – Part 1 – Planting Your New Tree

Planting Trees in Chattanooga

Since it’s spring, and people plant trees generally this time of year we will be doing a series on taking care of new trees. If you are new at planting trees or just need a refresher, feel free to follow this series. Here is some helpful information on planting your new tree.

This from the DIY Network Planting a new tree:

…If you have a lot of trees or a big hole to dig, an auger, even though it cost $200 or so to rent for a day, is a real time saver. First, cut the container before putting the tree in the hole. Then, don’t be afraid to roll the tree on its side to make planting easier. Then, gently lower the tree into the hole and watch to make sure it’s centered and not crooked…
