Questions to ask:
Does your tree have dead branches?
Does your tree need to be pruned?
Are the branches scraping the house?
Are the branches overhanging into a neighbor’s property?
As trees grow, they need direction. This may be in the form of pruning, thinning or shaping to remove deadwood. Pruning enhances the appearance and value of landscaping, but it’s importance goes way beyond looks.
Pruning can also help your tree by reducing damage from a storm, providing clearance from your home and can be used to train young trees early so possible structure problems can be avoided in the future.
Sometimes a tree has branch problems beyond what pruning can improve. A severe split in a tree’s large branch can cause the loss of that branch, which could affect the long term health of the tree. In these cases, our arborists assess the need for a cable or brace to support the structure of your tree, so that your tree remains structurally intact.
