  • Pruning is a practice that is periodically required on trees and shrubs.
  • Pruning is required to remove dead and dying branches to maintain plant health and safety.
  • The removal of live branches to reduce density significantly reduces wind resistance the major cause of storm damage. Thinning should only be done on trees where the crown is "too dense".
  •  Lower branches may require pruning.  Raising the canopy is used to allow free movement for grass maintenance as well to increase the amount of light for turf grass and ground covers beneath the crown of a tree.

Tree Removal

Tree removal is the most hazardous aspect of arboriculture. Often, we must remove trees growing in confined spaces near homes, utility lines, and other sensitive areas. Tree removal requires considerable experience and training to successfully perform this task.

Tree removals are performed to eliminate dead or dying trees as well as those that have become hazardous. A removal can be performed to change the existing landscape that would fit better to the likeness of the homeowner. Removals are also done to eliminate competition so the remaining plants have more light and space to develop. 

Cabling and Bracing

  • Cables and brace rods are intended to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches and multiple stems.
  • Cables generally consist of extra high strength steel and are attached to bolts installed in the upper crown of a tree. They are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to fail during storms.
  • Braces are thread rod that are installed through unions of weak branches and multiple stems to provide more support in severe weather conditions.

Storm Damage

Most damage to property occurs during severe weather events.  Falling trees and limbs due to high winds during thunderstorms can cause tree roots to fail and branches to weaken causing an array of misfortunes.While it is impossible to totally protect your trees and property from severe storms, there are some basic procedures that can help reduce the risk of damage. A preventive inspection will look for defects that could predispose your trees to fail. In many cases these hazards are not always obvious to the untrained eye and correcting them can be a dangerous job.Based on the outcome of an inspection we will recommend the appropriate treatment. Trees add value to your property, so removal should only be considered where high-risk conditions exist that cannot be remediated.
