There are many reasons for pruning and trimming trees and shrubs:

Maintenance pruning/trimming: Needed when trees are too close to a house, branches over-hang parking spaces or limbs are too low walk under. This type of pruning is done on a one, two or three - year cycle.
Structural pruning/trimming: Done when a tree is young, structural work ensures a healthy, strong crown. Young tree pruning corrects co-dominant leaders, weak angles of branch attachment and give a tree a much better chance of surviving a storm event later on in its life.
Aesthetic pruning/trimming: Cared-for trees can drastically enhance the beauty and value of your landscape.

Crown cleaning

is the removal of mistletoe, dead wood, diseased, rubbing, interfering and /or broken branches. This will reduce the risk of branches falling from the tree and reduce the spread of decay, insects, and diseases from dead or dying branches into the rest of the tree.

Weight Reduction Pruning

is the selective removal of branches and stems to reduce height and/or spread of the tree. This is typically done to achieve clearance from utility lines or buildings.

Thinning Pruning

is selective pruning to reduce density of live branches. This pruning is done to allow the wind to pass through the canopy of the tree more easily and to improve appearance of the tree.

Structural Development Pruning

is selective pruning to improve tree and branch architecture primarily on young and medium aged trees. This pruning is done to help young or medium trees to establish good branch structure.

Restoration Pruning

is selective pruning to redevelop structure, form, and appearance of severely pruned, vandalized or damaged trees. This pruning would be done when a tree has been topped or had branches that were removed improperly.structure.

Elevation Pruning

is the selective removal of branches from the lower portion of the canopy to provide vertical clearance. This is done to provide clearance for buildings, signs, vehicles, pedestrians and vistas.

Cabling and Bracing

Involves the installation of high strength cables and /or threaded rod to increase structural integrity in trees with structural defects.
