How do you know a tree needs trimming/pruning?

Signs that indicate a tree needs trimming or pruning are: 

 

  • It has dead or broken branches. Low hanging, broken or dead branches need to be removed as soon as possible. 

  • Overgrown branches can become a hazard and grow into power lines or other homes. 

  • Diseased or infected branches need to be removed to prevent the spread of disease. 

  • When branches cross over each other, they can rub against each other causing damage and make the tree more susceptible to diseases.

  • When a tree grows too large or out of shape, tree pruning helps maintain its size and shape.

 

When you notice any of these signs, call an expert San Jose arborist to evaluate your trees and determine if pruning or trimming is needed.

What is the difference between a tree removal service and tree trimming service?

The difference between tree removal and tree trimming services is that tree removal is the process of cutting down a tree entirely, while tree trimming is the act of removing specific branches or limbs from a tree.

 

Tree removal is necessary when a tree is dead or dying, poses a safety risk, or has grown too close to a structure, power lines, or other trees. It involves cutting down the tree, removing the branches and trunk, and grinding the stump to prevent regrowth.

 

Tree trimming is a maintenance service involving the removal of selective branches or limbs from a tree to enhance its health and appearance. Trimming and pruning help to prevent the tree from becoming a safety hazard by removing weak, diseased, or overhanging branches.

 

Tree removal refers to the complete elimination of a tree, while tree trimming involves the selective removal of branches or limbs for maintenance purposes.

Does the city of San Jose require a tree trimming permit?

You must apply for a city of San Jose tree trimming permit if you plan to remove certain types of trees, such as street trees, heritage trees, ordinance-size trees (whether alive or dead), or any tree located in common areas, multi-family, commercial, industrial, or mixed-use properties.

 

Street trees are commonly located within the public right-of-way area, which is the space between the sidewalk and the curb. In some cases, they may also be found up to 12 feet away from the curb. It is illegal to trim or cut down a street tree without acquiring a required permit. If you prune or remove a tree in San Jose without a permit, you may be fined between $15,000 and $30,000.

 

Two types of ordinance-sized trees in San Jose on private property are:
 

Single Trunk: .38 inches or more in circumference at 4 ½ feet above ground

Multi-trunk: The combined measurements of each trunk circumference at 4 ½ feet above ground and up to 38 inches or more in circumference. 


Approval for a permit application to remove an ordinance-size tree will be granted only if the tree is confirmed to be a safety hazard, dead, dying, diseased, unsuitable for its location, or obstructs economic development and proposed improvement of a parcel.
