Do a quick Google Search, and you will find there is a lot of confusion about tree trimming and pruning. Some people say they are the same thing, others say there is slight, but important difference. Some say “pruning” should be used for primarily shrubbery while “trimming” should be used for trees . Look some more, and you’ll find some people use the words differently based on why the service is being performed, for example “pruning” to promote health growth versus “trimming” to shape the look of a tree. In both cases, the terms are used to mean the removal of branches.
