Trees, bushes, and shrubs all need regular grooming to stay healthy and keep your yard looking beautiful. In Peachtree City, Georgia, high standards are in place to ensure the reputation of lush, well-manicured yards. A crucial part of a well-manicured lawn is proper pruning and trimming, which enhances the beauty of almost any tree or shrub. Proper technique is vital. You are better off not pruning at all than doing it incorrectly, as this can lead to more harm than good by weakening or deforming your plants and trees.
The words pruning and trimming are sometimes used interchangeably. However, trimming and pruning are actually two different things. To understand proper techniques, it’s important to first understand the difference between them.
What is trimming? Trimming refers to cutting an overgrown plant or tree. You might cut it into a specific shape, or cut it to keep it a specific size for aesthetic reasons. Trimming is not just for looks though; it has many health benefits. It’s preventative maintenance that reduces the risk of pest infestations and diseases and reduces the risk of falling branches, which, if your tree is big enough, could cause serious property damage. Just like trimming split ends off of your hair results in healthier, stronger hair growth, trimming trees and plants makes them grow strong and healthy. What is pruning? Pruning involves cutting off diseased, dead, loose, or otherwise unhealthy branches. While pruning improves a plant’s appearance, as dead branches are not terribly attractive, it is primarily done for health reasons. When you prune your trees, you’re getting rid of dead or diseased branches, which allows the tree to focus its energy on growing new, healthy leaves and branches. In addition, pruning also allows air and sunlight to reach the center of the plant, which helps prevent fungal diseases. Regular pruning leads to a healthier plant overall.
Trimming and pruning have similar benefits, but they’re used in different situations. Pruning is typically more selective while trimming is a more general, all-over type of approach. Either way, proper technique is important. More trees are killed or ruined each year from improper pruning and trimming than by pests.
Both pruning and trimming involve cutting. When it comes to cutting technique, if pruning shears are involved, basic cuts include heading cuts and thinning cuts. Heading cuts remove an entire branch back to a main stem or bud, while thinning cuts remove selected branches throughout the plant in order to improve air circulation. Hand pruners are ideal for making clean cuts on live branches without damaging them. Whichever type of cut you use, be sure to make cuts at a 45-degree angle just above a node (the point where leaves attach to stems).
Pruning Techniques to Keep in Mind
– When selective pruning, use clean, sharp tools. This will help prevent infection and allow for a clean cut.
– Cut at a 45-degree angle so that water doesn’t collect on the cut surface.
– Make sure not to over-prune, as this can damage the plant or even kill it.
– When shearing, use electric shears for a clean cut. Start with the sides and then move to the top. Be careful not to cut too much off at once; take it slow so you don’t damage the plant.
Trimming Techniques To Know
– Use sharp, clean scissors or garden shears for the best results on plants.
– Be extra careful when trimming trees around power lines or other obstacles.
– Try not to trim more than one-third of the plant or tree at a time.
– Don’t forget about safety! Wear gloves and long sleeves to protect yourself from thorns and other sharp objects.
Pruning and trimming may be tedious tasks, but they play an important role in maintaining plant health. Be sure to do your research on what type of plants you have as well as when the best time would be to trim or prune them. By following the proper techniques, you can ensure that your plants thrive and your yard is the envy of the neighborhood.

Before spring arrives with its new leaves and blooms, late winter is the perfect time to prepare your landscaping. Trimming branches and shrubs after the winter prepares your trees for a healthy spring. All of this activity, however, can create a lot of green waste. “Green waste” is vegetative matter resulting from landscaping or land clearing. Things like tree trimmings, grass clippings, dead plants, leaves, branches, dead trees, brush, and small tree stumps are all considered green waste.
As a tree company, we believe in conserving the earth’s natural resources. Through the process of green waste recycling, organic material such as tree limbs, grass clippings, fallen leaves, and even dead plant matter can be composted and processed into something useful and beneficial.
Green waste can be recycled and has the potential to benefit both the community and the environment. Here’s how:
Reduces Landfill Waste
It’s no secret that our landfills are overflowing. In fact, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American generates 4.4 pounds of trash each day – that’s a lot of trash! A large portion of that trash is made up of organic materials that could be recycled instead. By recycling our green waste, we can divert millions of tons of organic material away from landfills each year. This can help conserve space in these already full landfills and extend their lifespan.
Protects Water Resources
When green waste is disposed of in landfills, it rots and produces leachate—a liquid that contains pollutants like nitrogen, phosphorus, and heavy metals. This leachate can contaminate groundwater and surface water if it’s not properly managed. Composting or recycling green waste keeps it out of landfills where it would produce leachate and pollute our water resources. Green waste recycling facilities are equipped with filters and other pollution control devices that help to further protect our water resources.
Produces Compost and Mulch
Compost and mulch are two of the most important products of green waste recycling. Compost is a nutrient-rich soil additive that can be used in gardens and landscaping projects, while mulch is a protective covering that helps to conserve moisture and prevent weeds from growing. Both compost and mulch are essential for keeping our gardens healthy and beautiful.
When you recycle your green waste instead of sending it to the landfill, you’re doing your part to create a more sustainable future. As the only green waste recycling service in our area, it’s our honor to give green waste a new purpose and remain good stewards of the earth’s natural resources. Using advanced equipment, our team can recycle and repurpose 100% of all the organic material we receive. We transform all these natural materials and nutrients into recycled products, which can help plants and trees thrive in the future.
At 770-TREE-GUY, our green waste recycling can accommodate your needs and schedule. We offer both off-site and localized recycling; we can move the debris to our facility or process it right in your yard! Our recycling center is open to the public, commercial, and municipal sectors, from 8 to 4, Monday through Friday.
We hope you’ll consider recycling your green waste. Every little bit helps reduce landfill waste and protect our environment. Whether you are an individual with tree trimmings, a tree service with tree remains, a city park maintenance company with hedge clippings, or anything in between—if you have organic green waste, 770-TREE-GUY has you covered.

If you’re like many people, you love to decorate your house with Christmas lights and ornaments. But before you start stringing up those holiday cheer, be sure to read this blog post! We’ll give you some tips on how to hang outdoor Christmas decorations without harming your trees and plants.
Protect the Bark
For starters, avoid using nails or screws when attaching lights to trees. Instead, use plastic or metal hooks that are specifically designed for Christmas lights. This will minimize the chances of damaging the tree’s bark.
Be Careful with Extension Cords
When using extension cords, be sure to avoid placing them in areas where they might get damaged by lawn mowers or foot traffic. It’s also important to choose extension cords that are rated for outdoor use. This will help prevent fires and other accidents.
Prevent Fire Hazards
Another tip is to ensure you’re not overloading the electrical circuits by plugging in too many lights. This can cause a fire hazard. Be sure to check the wattage of your outdoor lights and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Turn Off the Lights When You’re Not Home
It’s important to turn off your Christmas lights when you’re not home. This will save energy and prevent your lights from overloading the electrical circuits in your home.
Remove Decorations Promptly
Finally, don’t forget to take down your holiday decorations after Christmas is over! Leaving them up all year round can damage the tree and shorten its lifespan. So be sure to remove all lights and decorations within a week or two after the holidays are over.
Hanging Christmas lights and decorations can be a fun way to get into the holiday spirit. But it’s important to take some precautions to avoid damaging your trees and plants. With these tips, you can ensure your home will beautifully celebrate the season without causing permanent damage to your trees.
