When branches are no longer useful to a tree, it drops them. Dead or diseased branches lose their strength and come crashing to the ground. This is especially dangerous with larger trees, like oaks. Property damage can occur due to falling branches.
Our expert team members know how to spot potentially hazardous branches and properly remove them before they can fall.
If dead branches are left at the base of a tree they will eventually begin to decompose. The decomposition process attracts insects, molds, and other unwanted critters, and can potentially clutter the area around a tree and impede healthy growth.
On top of safety and tree health, a properly trimmed tree provides a more pleasing, clean look. The process also allows the tree to grow with a structurally sound trunk and branch system that can resist high winds and extend its life.
Pruning is often confused with trimming. However, pruning differs from trimming in a few ways; but the primary difference is that during pruning, entire branches can be removed to prevent disease and to promote healthy growth.
Our pros know how to encourage proper growth by pruning trees while they are dormant to remove diseased branches. The service prevents insects and other organisms from beginning to feed on the tree, which leads to decay.
Canopies are often thinned out to allow more light and airflow to the core of the tree. Another added bonus is that proper pruning of fruit-bearing trees can lead to larger, higher-quality fruit!
The appropriate time to trim and prune trees can vary depending upon the tree and the purpose of the service. Here is a brief rundown of the best times to service trees:
In addition to trimming large and small trees, our team can fully remove large trees when needed. We also provide stump grinding services. Stump grinding requires the right equipment and experience to maintain safety.
The stump grinding process involves removing the remaining parts of the tree first. Once only the stump remains, a machine called a stump grinder is brought in to handle the heavy work. The stump is ground to about 6 in. below the ground surface. The process prevents new trees from sprouting and allows grass and turf to take root instead. We typically cover the area with the remaining dirt and remove any tripping hazards caused by the service.
