Why Hire an Arborist?

An arborist is a specialist in the care and needs of trees. Pruning large trees can be difficult and dangerous. An arborist is a skilled professional who is trained and equipped to perform accepted practices and work safely in your tree. Neglect or improper tree care can seriously harm your tree and result in a significant liability.

Note: We do estimates for tree pruning and removals free of charge.



Tree Pruning

Most urban landscape trees require some corrective pruning to develop proper form and safe branch structure. A young tree given regular attention (every 3 to 5 years) has a much greater chance of staying healthy and vigorous to become a heritage for decades (even centuries) to come. Older mature trees generally require a "house cleaning" type of maintenance to maintain their overall health and safety. We recommend removing no more than 25% of the crown for any mature tree. We also will not "top" or pollard a tree because of the extensive negative effect this has on its future health.
