Tree Pruning & Preservation

Regular inspections by our ISA Certified Arborists help preserve the health and safety of your trees and shrubs. We provide observations and recommendations based on years of experience, education and training in the field of arboriculture.

Pruning is necessary for optimal tree health. The process eliminates dead limbs, crossing branches, and unwanted growth. Proper pruning directs the vitality of a tree into its live branches which improves its health. We follow the current tree care industry standards, addressing both structural and aesthetic issues when pruning your trees.

Removing selective branches from inside the tree reduces weight and wind resistance and minimizes breakage from of storm damage. The natural shape of the tree is preserved with directive pruning.

 

Tree Lifting or Canopy Lifting

Tree Shaping or Canopy Reduction

tree-pruning-shapingCrown Reduction is most often used after a storm has damaged trees. It is also utilized to reduce the size of trees when they have outgrown their space. When trees reach a size that is too large or blocks the view, our most frequent recommendation is to remove the tree and replace it with one that will conform to the size and shape desired. Crown Reduction never exceeds 25% of the overall height and spread of the tree.
