Pruning is one of the most cost effective investments you can make in the proactive care of your landscape's trees and shrubs. A yearly pruning program helps to maintain the health, beauty and safety of your trees and shrubs.
Pruning trees when they are young and growing quickly, is critical to ensuring a strong framework for future growth. This pruning focuses on maintaining a single dominant leader unless multiple leaders are specifically desired. Most of the corrective pruning work done in mature shade trees could have been avoided had the tree been properly pruned and trained for branch structure when it was young.
On mature trees, pruning is required to remove dead and dying branches to maintain plant health and safety. Skilled pruning results in safer, healthier, and more attractive trees.
