Pruning Services

Deadwood Removal

Deadwood removal is the elimination of dead, dying, diseased, crowded, and weak branches from the crown of a tree. Trimming deadwood improves a tree’s health and makes the area under the tree safer.

We use professional equipment such as cranes to reach elevated tree canopies

Elevating Canopies

Elevating a tree’s canopy means removing the lower branches of the tree. This service can provide clearance for homes, vehicles, and pedestrians. It can also increase visibility on your property and provide better views of your house from the street.

Crown Reduction

Crown reduction means selectively reducing the size, height, or spread of a tree by pruning back the leaders and branch terminal to the lateral branches. Crown reduction can also improve the structural integrity of a tree.

General Thinning

General thinning increases light penetration and air movement through the crown of the tree. Thinning can also improve the appearance of a tree by making it look more well kept.

Why Do You Need Tree Trimming?

Many homeowners don’t know all of the benefits of regular tree trimming. Here are the main reasons why you should prune your trees:


Trees that have a lot of deadwood are a safety hazard. Dead tree branches become brittle as they degrade and they can fall off in large pieces. It’s especially important to remove deadwood if it’s hanging over a public area, your house, electrical lines, or anything else that could be damaged.

Tree Health

Removing deadwood encourages tree growth. When a tree has fewer dead branches, it gets more sun exposure. More sun exposure increases photosynthesis, which allows the tree to absorb and distribute nutrients more efficiently. Healthy trees produce more flowers and fruits too!

Proper Tree Growth

Trimming also ensures proper growth. You can improve a tree’s structural integrity by changing the configuration of its limbs and branches. Proper pruning distributes the weight of the tree’s limbs and branches so that the tree is sturdier.

Damage Prevention

When a tree has a lot of deadwood, it’s more likely to be damaged by thunderstorms and strong winds. When deadwood is ripped off a tree during a storm, it can expose the heartwood at the center of the tree. This exposure can lead to fungus, insect infestations, and decay.

Disease Detection

Regular trimming also allows you to detect fungus, insect infestations, and tree diseases early. The earlier you detect a disease or infestation, the better your chances are to save the tree. Saving trees can save you a lot of money in tree removal fees.


Removing deadwood also improves the appearance of your trees. Regular trimming allows you to shape your trees, making them more aesthetic. As we mentioned above, healthy trees also produce more flowers and fruits. Having beautiful trees on your property can even increase the value of your home by improving its curb appeal.

Why You Should Hire an Arborist To Take Care of Your Trees

You can always prune your trees yourself, but it’s not the safest or the easiest job. Here’s why we recommend having a professional arborist take care of the job for you:



When pruning trees, you have to be careful not to let branches fall on you. And climbing trees to reach higher branches is always dangerous, especially if the tree has a lot of deadwood. It’s best to leave the job to professional arborists.



If your trees require more extensive pruning, you might not have the equipment to reach tall branches or hack off large pieces of deadwood. Arborists come prepared with climbing equipment, saws, and even aerial lifts.



Tree trimming is hard work. Let us break our backs for you! Don’t worry—we enjoy the work. Our athletic climbing crew is able to reach the higher areas of trees. When necessary, we can also use our back yard accessible aerial lift.


Possibility of Damaging Trees

Improper tree pruning can significantly damage your trees. Trimming too much of a tree’s crown can be fatal (you reduce too much of its energy-producing foliage). Improper pruning can also reduce the structural integrity of the tree. Arborists are trained in the correct techniques to avoid damage and improve tree health and safety.


Arborists Can Spot Tree Disease

When you hire an arborist to trim your trees, they’ll also be on the lookout for signs of tree diseases or insect infestations. When an arborist spots the early signs of a disease or insect infestation, they can recommend special treatments to save the tree. Keeping trees healthy can save you from having to pay for tree removal in the future.
