Tree Pruning and Trimming

​Tree pruning plays a significant role in maintaining the structure, growth, and integrity of your tree. A properly pruned tree helps it  maintain its usefulness and lifespan in the landscape. Some trees can only be pruned at certain times of the year by law such as elms or by its nature such birch trees.  The how and why will be determined during the initial assessment. 

Types of pruning we do

  • Structural Pruning: Pruning and shaping helps in creating space between trees and nearby structures, buildings, and other obstructions. It helps a tree grow and minimizes safety risks.

  • Crown Cleaning: Removal of dead, broken, dying, crossed, rubbing or diseased branches from the trees crown. 

  • Crown elevation and thinning: For issues with clearance on your sidewalk, street or lawn.  Thinning increase light penetration and reduce mechanical stress from selected branches.
