Tree pruning is important for many reasons. With proper pruning, a tree can be trained to grow in a way that increases the structural integrity of the tree, and is aesthetically more pleasing to the property owner. Maintaining the tree’s structure helps to minimize the risk of broken limbs and falling branches. It can be hard to determine which trees on your commercial or residential property need to be maintained.

Branch Cuts and Wound Paint
We approach your project by evaluating the entire tree structure — not just a few low hanging, dead branches. We make cuts without damaging the tree’s collar, a reinforced area where the branch meets the trunk. Heavy branches are cut three times to avoid tearing the bark as the branch separates. We also angle the cuts above the branch bark ridge. This practice is least invasive to the health of the tree, so that future problems are minimized.
These techniques allow the tree to heal quickly from the cut. We do not use tar or wound paint as these applications do more harm than good. Painting over the fresh wound creates a moisture barrier. The sealed pocket breeds disease which allows pathogens to enter the tree. Exposure to fresh air is best for a quick recovery.
We have all the necessary equipment to handle trees of all sizes. If there are large branches, we may use our bucket truck or crane. No matter how large or small your tree removal needs, we have the equipment to be efficient and careful on your property.
