pruning is necessary for healthy tree growth and shape. There are several pruning approaches when we meet for the estimate we'll take a look at which one will be best for you.
shape tree growth and maintain "architecture"
remove structural defects
crown thinning for new growth
maintain sound trunk and branch structure
wind and storm damage prevention
end weight reduction (removal of excess weight at tips to prevent limb failure)
whether your tree has died, outgrown its space, become hazardous, or is damaging the surrounding infrastructure we can safely remove the tree when the time comes. We take extra to avoid damaging any of your other plants ans landscape.
removal of dead and diseased wood, removal of problem crossing limbs, removal of cracked and broken limbs, removal of old pruning stubs, and removal of poorly attached limbs to have its own space to grow into (more so for younger trees to ensure a solid frame)

There is no job too big or too small, we serve residential and commercial and with every job we strive for excellence. Below is just a brief discription of the different services we offer:
removal of congested interior, previous stubs and deadwood. Sprout thinning along scaffold limbs
there are many reasons a stump should be removed, they are unsightly, hazardous, and over time as they decay they may attract termites and other unwanted pests to your yard and home.
at times the height of a tree needs to be controlled (i.e. growing under power lines, obstructing a view, etc) we do this by reducing the height down to lateral branches that are at least 4% the diameter of the parent limb they are growing off of. This allows the lateral branch to resume the role of the leader. But cutting back to the correct size lateral branch, "sprouting" is minimized from the cut. Many trees can be reduced in height and still retain a very natural look/shape.
smaller ornamental types of trees are usually pruned more for aesthetic purposes. This type of pruning is used for highlighting the tree structure through thoughtful thinning and shaping. Also, some trees benefit from the removal of old flower pods for stronger, more vibrant flowering the following season.
Reports: there are various reasons for arborist reports, two of the most common that most cities and county require are for removal or doing any kind of construction around protected "heritage" trees . The fee for this service depends on the project, but is a minimum of $175.00.
