There are a few reasons why you may want to trim your hedges. Many trim for aesthetic purposes, but the main reason for trimming is to control the size of the hedge.
The beauty and benefit of having hedges are that you can grow them to look like what you want in your dreams. They can be a big part of your garden design as well as playing a role in noise reduction from the streets.
If you have a tiny hedge you may need to trim the hedge twice a year. Most of the people trim their hedges once a year.
The following guidelines should be used to determine whether your tree should be trimmed:
Your tree has grown too close to power lines
Branches that are dead, loose, or unattractive hanging branches
It has been a few years your trees have been trimmed or pruned
You would like a more aesthetic appeal
Note: if there are branches from your tree hanging near electrical outlets, you should call the utility company and they will have a professional come and trim the tree at no charge whatsoever.
When the fair weather arrives in spring and summer, many homeowners turn their attention to their lawns and landscapes. These seasons are when arborists are the busiest and it may be difficult to find a quality tree care service at short notice.
There are many reasons to cut a tree.
One of them can be a dead tree which with time can pose a hazard to the surrounding. A dead tree can break and cause substantial damage to the property or harm someone.
Another reason to cut a tree it when the roots of a tree start to damage the foundation of a property. In some cases when a tree was planted top close to the house the piping and structures can be compromised by the growing roots. Cutting a tree down, also known as felling, requires a great amount of technical skill. This is not something to do yourself and it should always be left to a trained, professional arborist. An arborist will come equipped with the appropriate tools and equipment to ensure that a tree is properly and safely chopped down.
There are numerous safety concerns that must be considered when cutting a tree down.

Then there are customers who wish to have the dead tree removed completely including branches, trunk, stump, and roots.

Frequent Asked Questions?
What is tree removal?
Tree removal is a highly technical task and the most perilous one when it comes to arboriculture. It requires highly qualified professionals to carry on this task successfully. Tree removal often becomes necessary to maintain the aesthetics as well as the health of your landscape. It also addresses the liability and safety of the host and the neighbouring properties. It becomes particularly necessary to remove the trees growing in confined spaces or the ones that are interfering with the health of other trees or jeopardizing the utility wires, driveways, or buildings.

It is difficult to give an exact cost for cutting down a tree as so many factors influence it. From the size of the tree to its locations and conditions, these factors affect the cost of cutting a tree down. Having said that, the cost of cutting a mature tree usually ranges between $500 to $1,500. The average base price is usually $1,200.

Can you cut down a tree on your property?

For that matter, it is a good idea to know about your responsibilities and rights before making an abrupt decision. In case a tree’s branches hang on your side of the property then you have the right, by law, to trim the branches that extend to your side. But you are only allowed to trim the tree and aren’t allowed to cut it down or harm it in any other way, if you do so, you would be liable for up to three times the tree’s value. The common trees have a replacement value ranging from $500 to $2500 while the landmark and ornamental trees can cost as high as $60,000.

How often must the hedges be trimmed?
The hedge cutting and trimming frequency is dependent on the species of the hedge. However, the rule of thumb is to trim the hedges two to three times in a year during their growing season. This rule is usually applicable to the evergreens like the privet and box while the fast-growing conifers might need to be trimmed more often.
