Pruning your trees and shrubs is a crucial part of maintaining the health of your landscape. It is the most common tree maintenance procedure, and there is a science behind it. Pruning enhances the health, beauty and structure of your trees. How often you need to prune depends on the age and type of tree or shrub.

Why should you prune your trees?

    • Pruning for health: Removing dead and diseased branches is crucial to keep your trees healthy.
    • Pruning to Reduce Risk: Removing weak or broken branches can protect against storm damage, and the danger of fallen limbs.
    • Pruning for Appearance: Who doesn’t appreciate the beauty and form of a well-shaped tree? Aesthetic tree pruning is both art and science and adds value and attraction to a property.
    • Pruning for Visual Access: Is a large branch blocking your view of a picturesque natural element, like a mountain peak or lake? Vista pruning can solve that problem, increasing your landscapes natural beauty and value.
    • Pruning Young Trees: Research teaches us to prune new trees 5 times in the first 25 years. Developmental tree pruning helps to ensure young trees have desirable branch shape and structural integrity. This process reduces potential problems and the need for drastic pruning later which can lead to decay.

How we prune differently:

  • We climb to the tips of the branches ensuring we make proper cuts and reduce the length and weight of branches prone to breakage.
  • We employ structural pruning. University research backed science, that ensures your young trees get stronger and more beautiful with age.
  • We don’t lion’s tail or top trees. These techniques weaken trees structurally and negatively impact their health.
  • We prune with the future in mind, using every pruning cycle to improve the health and safety of the tree.
