Pruning is the best way to improve your tree structure and appearance. If you go into any natural area you will find fallen trees, as well as trees with large dead limbs and other defects. It is very natural for trees to get old and fall apart. It is the arborist job to understand the tree life cycle in order to tame this wild tree in our urban landscapes. When pruning your tree, the arborist will identify tree defects, remove dead branches, and reduce or remove poorly attached branches to make your yard both safe and beautiful.
Young tree pruning is perhaps the best way to save money and ensure healthy tree growth. The trained arborist can evaluate a small tree understanding how it will grow over time. Removing the poorly attached branches while the tree is young will keep those branches from later growing larger in places you do not want, like over your home, where removal will be more technical and costly. Removing these branches early in the growth process is also healthier for the tree because it will not produce the larger pruning wounds that increase the risk of decay and loss of canopy.
