Not anything that works consistently... Best would be the removal of stained insulation and painting the wooden members up there to seal off any smells. That's an intensive operation, you really can't do it in the summer and survive long! Plan in the summer, do it in the fall or spring.
Trim the trees, yes, but that won't keep them off, they'll get up there somehow, guaranteed.
Chum a bit, before you set the traps. Let unset traps sit around, baited. When the bait disappears, re-enable the traps and you'll get some.

Here's a link to more squirrel removal information and pictures from Rid-A-Critter, an Atlanta animal control company.
