Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is vital for the health and longevity of your trees, but must be done with purpose and care. Removing dead wood and structural issues is an important part of tree maintenance, improving your trees’ longevity and strength. Pruning trees away from your home, driveway, and walkways protects your loved ones and your assets.

Reasons for Tree Trimming:

To remove dead or storm-damaged limbs

Removing tree limbs that are dead, diseased, or in decline reduces hazards on your property and also allows the trimmed cut to compartmentalize, therefore blocking future decay.

To reduce the overall height of the tree

While the practice of tree topping is harmful, knowledgeable tree care professionals can reduce the height of a tree with proper techniques. Reduction pruning can maintain the trees’ structural integrity and form while also meeting your vista pruning goals. 

To reduce access to your home by pests

Trees can act as a highway for squirrels, rodents and other pests. Proper pruning can limit these pests from accessing your home.

To remove obstructing branches

We can remove tree limbs that threaten wires, houses, roofs, or that pose a hazard to streets or sidewalks – protecting your loved ones and assets. 

To thin the crown

Thinning the tree allows for better air circulation & light penetration to plants on the ground. Improved circulation reduces moisture, thus decreasing the probability for leaf spots, rust, or other moisture-related diseases or fungi. 

To shape a tree for design purposes

There are many ways to shape a tree for aesthetics: whether you want the “Christmas tree” look for your spruce or a “lollipopped” ornamental, our tree experts can work with you to bring your vision to life.
