Trimming and Pruning

Trimming and pruning your trees is important. Your trees need to be pruned to help maintain their beauty, keep them healthy, keep them the correct size for the surrounding environment, and most importantly to keep them safe to you, your property, and everything else around them. 

Although trimming and pruning may seem simple enough, without the proper tools, techniques, and experience you can actually do more harm than good. First and foremost, tree work can be very dangerous. With or without the proper training, you are at the mercy of a very powerful force. An incorrect cut could send you to the hospital. This is the biggest reason to hire a professional to do the work for you. We have been trained and safety is our biggest issue. Of course there are other reasons than that. For example, by making incorrect cuts you can cause irreparable damage to your tree. The wrong cut can cause rotting and decay which weakens the structure of the tree and makes it unsafe and more susceptible to disease.

Timing is also important. For example, you don’t want to do any trimming on Oak trees between April and June. Trimming Oak trees during these months make it more susceptible to Oak Wilt (a life threatening disease of Oak trees). Another is American Elm, they shouldn't be trimmed May through July when DED (dutch elm disease) is flying about. 

These are just a few of the many reasons why you should hire a professional to maintain your trees. You’re guaranteed that we’ll do the job the proper way at the proper time to help ensure a long, beautiful, and safe life for your trees.
