Tree Trimming Services

C & H Gardens offers licensed residential and commercial tree service work, coupled with artistic sensitivity and can create a professional look for your home or business.  Our tree trimming service area includes all of North County as well as other areas in San Diego.


Lacing is the process by which the tree is thinned to 20 or 30% of its original thickness in order to let light and air into the canopy and the landscape below the tree. The term tree lacing refers to the look of the tree after trimming in which the symmetrical opening and pruning of the tree leaves the canopy looking like a bridal veil or lace table cloth where it can be seen though.

Tree Shaping and tipping

Shaping and tipping are very close to the same thing as lacing. Shaping is the process that creates a rounded natural overall canopy for the tree. Tipping does the same thing but as the word implies, only the tips of the smaller branches are cut back with a pole pruner on an extension saw in order to control growth gently and not reduce canopy size with harsh large diameter cuts as can be affected with shaping an out of control tree with a chainsaw.

Topping Tree Service

Topping is the act of reducing the overall height of a tree by cutting the central supporting trunks with a saw at a lower point in the tree. This is desirable only if the tree has reached a dangerous height next to a building or traffic area. Typically, topping is an undesirable method of tree pruning in that it create weak new growths that emanate from the latent buds found around the outside of any trunk or branch after severe pruning. These new growths have weak connections to the original trunk and break easily in high winds and wet conditions. They also typically ruin the beauty of a mature tree with their wooly appearance and require frequent pruning to prevent branch loss and unsightly appearance.
