Tree Pruning

Your trees need attention on a full scale to be healthy and safe. Proper pruning techniques are vital to the trees compatibility with structures and other landscaping on your property.

Improper pruning can lead to trees that are unsightly and unsafe.

Removing trees and limbs that are dead or structurally unstable should be done as needed to prevent property loss and insurance hikes. Trees are at their best when kept off roofs, cars, and our neighbors property.

Pruning of young trees can prevent hazards by removing bad branches while the tree is small, and structural flaws have not yet progressed.

A properly thinned tree can let wind blow through it's structure instead of creating a solid mass that the wind blows against, leading to the root system becoming dislodged, toppling the tree.

before thinning
Notice the tree on the
left before thinning.

Then the tree after
thinning is on the right.

The tree now has room
to breathe and allow
the wind to move through its branches.

Smaller branches and water sprouts or "sucker growth," use a lot of energy that a tree could be using for more beneficial development.

Deadwood is more likely to break off
and fall. It also harbors pests and disease, and should be removed.

Proper pruning can reduce the threat of your big, beautiful trees from becoming part of your living room motif.


We do not perform tree topping because it is the most harmful tree pruning practice known. Find out why.

Use our Complimentary Tree Health Checklist for visible signs that your trees may be stressed.
