Job Description for Tree Trimmer

A tree trimmer is a landscape professional who specializes in the careful cutting of tree branches. Tree trimmers perform this action for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, dead or diseased branches can jeopardize the tree itself; other times, they may be utilized by state or local governments to remove branches which obstruct views for drivers or endanger utility lines. Tree trimmers also perform an aesthetic service by helping to carefully manage and manicure trees for landscaped residential and business clients.
