Twin Cities Tree Trimming and Pruning
Tree trimming and pruning will promote the proper growth of trees on your property.
Regular tree trimming and pruning are almost always needed for trees in urban areas. The Warner’s approach: We start at the bottom branches and move upward toward the top of the tree. This is essential for tree and shrub care routines in Minnesota. Tree pruning removes suckers from both the base of the tree and from the major limbs. Pruning also removes branches that inhibit the growth of other tree limbs. Warner’s tree trimming and pruning service can also include deadwood removal and debris removal.
Benefits of Tree Trimming & Pruning

Timing is dependent upon the tree species and local conditions. We find it best to prune during dormant seasons, which would be late fall and winter. Contact our arborists for more information about the best time for trimming and pruning your trees.
How Often Should You Prune Your Trees?
As a rule of thumb, mature trees can be put on a 3-5 year maintenance cycle, while younger trees need to be pruned more frequently, around every 2-3 years. A tree expert at Warner’s can determine the age of your trees and the proper maintenance. Your fruit trees should be pruned annually to help them produce each spring.

Nuisance Trees in Minnesota
If you are a property owner in Minnesota, it is important that you know basic guidelines around trees. A nuisance tree is defined as a neighboring tree that happens to have overgrowth that may be impeding the appearance or safety of your home or your neighbor’s property. As the property owner, you have responsibilities and rights when it comes to your trees. While you are responsible for trimming the trees so you and your neighbors are safe, you also have rights.
- You may be able to only trim the branches, rather than cut down and remove the tree.
- You may be required to prune a tree as it extends beyond your property line; however, you might be able to let it grow freely as long as it is within your property.
- You may be able to freely allow healthy trees and plants to grow, but you might be required to remove trees with declining health or any that have been exposed to the disease.
