Tree & Shrub Pruning

Pruning is the oldest and most widely performed tree maintenance procedure. Trees growing in an urban environment have different needs than forest trees. Trees in the forest flourish with only natural branch shedding. Urban trees and landscape trees should be pruned on a regular basis to promote health and beauty. Some of the many reasons for tree pruning include:

  • Dead branches
  • Diseased or otherwise weak branches
  • Crowded or rubbing branches
  • Overweight branches (to prevent storm damage)
  • Visibility of structures and traffic areas
  • Clear roofs and other structures
  • Curb appeal and to help sell your home
  • Pest problems such as ants and squirrels
  • Holiday decorations will stand out more
  • Protect holiday guests from falling dead branches
  • Increase light penetration for your lawn, gardening and landscaping

Proactive or preventive pruning is the best measure to ensure your trees health and to lower the risk of damage during thunderstorms or winter storms. There are many pruning procedures that we can implement to achieve these goals. They include: crown cleaning, crown thinning, crown raising and crown reduction. We prune trees without climbing spikes and adhere to accepted industry standards.

Tree & Shrub Removal

Even though the practical and prudent reasons for removing trees are numerous, within our core mission is our belief that removing trees should be given every serious consideration along with other viable options (after all, you are considering permanently removing a free air purifier and air conditioner). After all options have been weighed the various reasons for removing trees include:

  • Dead and diseased trees
  • New construction
  • Remodeling
  • Construction damage
  • Play areas
  • More sunlight
  • Garden area
  • Avoid driveway damage
  • Reduce allergies
  • Fence installation

We are available to help you evaluate your site and determine if, or which, trees ought to be considered for removal. We employ expert arborists and tree climbers that are proficient at removing trees in precarious situations. We take every precaution for the safety of our staff and your property.
