Tree Pruning and Tree Trimming

Our specialties, tree trimming and pruning are essential to healthy tree growth

Trees take their time to acquire a final shape. Tree shape is influenced by human intervention and manipulation, as well as nature’s weathering. Tree trimming shouldn’t be left to the last minute, or during an emergency, as it can severely impact the growing tree. Drastic trimming all at once can lead to infection and irregular growth, or worse yet an unbalanced toppling. An occasional trimming and thinning is recommended to prevent drastic changes in growth patterns, and it will let the tree’s shape appear more organic.

Tree pruning and trimming are essential to:

  • Remove any dead branches
  • Prevent limbs from damaging the house and other property
  • Prevent branches from crowding
  • Reduce safety hazards
  • Increase light and air penetration to the lawn below

Properly trimmed or pruned trees help to prevent damage to property or bodily injury, as well as increase airflow to both the tree and ground below.

Our seasoned experts at Middlesex Tree have the knowledge and equipment to safely prune your trees. Pruning is essential in developing a tree with a strong structure and desirable form. We will work with you to help keep your trees healthy and beautiful. Our knowledgeable staff will identify areas of concern and provide recommendations for proper maintenance—without compromising the health of the trees being pruned. Our skilled climbers access the canopy of the tree through a series of climbing techniques including rope, saddle, and our 60 ft bucket truck. No matter the size or scope of the project, our team can effortlessly move through the canopy to deliver what’s needed.

    Chris and his crew did a great job removing a large tree in very tight quarters on my property. They were on time, on budget, and left my property (and my neighbors too) in perfect shape when they were done. I recommend them highly to anyone looking for professional assistance removing a tree.

    Chris and Russ and the rest of the team did a great job at a great price. We had two big maple trees with dead wood that needed to be removed and some additional limbs that needed to be trimmed. They were fast and affordable. You have to be a little bit flexible when it comes to scheduling, but I imagine that's just the nature of the business.

    The crew cleared out a large brush pile that I’ve been working on for years, removed a couple dead pine trees, and then preceded to trim back the trees along the sides of my house. The crew manager Russell stopped the job to get my attention because he wanted to know what I thought of his trim job, asking if I wanted him to cut back more or leave it as he trimmed it initially. To my satisfaction they finished the job and left my yard looking excellent, just in time for my cookout this weekend!

    Chris came out to my home within a couple of hours and gave me an estimate that beat the next estimate by hundreds of dollars. They took down the tree and left my yard the way they found it. They covered and sweep the ground and the yard. My neighbor was so impressed; she had them remove one of her trees while they were there. A great job at a great price.

    Chris and his crew did a great job. They took time to carefully set up and take the trees down as asked to do using all the proper equipment needed. I recommend them very highly.

    Middlesex Tree Service is fantastic. They came within two hours of a call about a fallen tree during Hurricane Irene and removed the entire very large tree promptly, fully, and without unduly disrupting traffic on a very busy main street. Very professional and thorough, and they also did a really good job cleaning up.

    We needed a large silver maple tree taken down in our yard, and Middlesex Tree Service did a great job. Chris was very responsive on the phone and did the work promptly, efficiently, and for a good price. I'd definitely hire them again.

    Martel and Middlesex Tree came out to our house this past Winter to remove a tree that had fallen against our house. He quickly removed the section touching the house without any further damage. He returned to cut up the remainder of the tree and left us log length wood for burning. His guys even cleaned up all the small branches left in the backyard. Terrific work at a reasonable price. Very professional, timely and cost-effective. I would definitely recommend especially if you have a difficult removal or many trees.


    I worked with Chris and Middlesex Tree to remove several trees on my property. They removed 4 trees in my front yard that were extremely close to my house, and 4 trees + several overhang leaders in my backyard. Chris and his crew did a fantastic job getting the trees cleared in a timely manner. From the time they set up to the time they left, they were only on my property for a total of a day. They easily navigated the difficult terrain of my property (I live on a hill) and took time in securing bushes from getting damaged. They did a terrific job of cleaning up all the debris and even cleaned my roof. They left my yard looking nicer than before!

    Chris and his crew were taking trees down on my "old" property for approximately six hours yesterday. My property being landlocked and "in the woods" this was not an easy endeavor. Everyone was professional and courteous. Although we are in the middle of the flowering season, they all took great care not to disrupt surrounding landscaping. Thanks so much guys!
