Tree Pruning

Tree pruning services involve cutting selective branches off of a tree for whatever the reason. It could be a limb that is too close to your home or all the branches that are too close to the ground.

Branches too close to your house can pose a threat to your home during storms. They can also give access to your roof for critters such as squirrels and roof rats.

Low hanging limbs can make be a nuisance when cutting your grass. Much of the time, they also can bring down the aesthetic value to the front of your home.

Tree Crowning

Tree crowning or crown reduction services involves cutting all the branches back on a tree to a selective point. This will reduce the overall size of the tree. Crown reduction is done for a variety of reasons.

Bradford Pear Trees, for example must be crowned when they get to a certain size because the weight of their branches becomes too much for the tree. When that happens, they often times break during wind storms.

In some cases trees were planted too close to a home or structure. Sometimes the homeowner did not anticipate their tree to become as big as it has. Removal is not always the best option if you have an ornamental tree in a misfortunate spot. Crowning it will allow the tree to continue being a landscape fixture without being a hindrance.

Tree Trimming Service Procedures

Trimming trees the right way takes a great deal of knowledge and experience to do correctly. We use leveraging systems to pull large branches away from your home and we never wear gaffs when trimming your trees. Gaffs pierce through the bark of a tree to assist in climbing. However, they leave pathways for bugs and fungi to enter the tree and cause damage. It also promotes growth where you don’t want it. We use a throw line to install ropes so our climbers can enter the tree without harming it. From there your tree rigged and cut so your final product is a beautiful tree that compliments your home.
