Tree Topping, Pruning and Care Service
Tree Topping, Pruning and Care Service We are experts in helping our clients maintain healthy and beautiful looking trees on their properties. Do your trees need pruning? Do your trees look like they need cleaning or maybe it is the removal of dead or dying branches? Do your trees need better soil and fertilizer? Maybe your trees are damaged or diseased? No matter what your tree maintenance needs are, we can do the job! Regularly scheduled maintenance is a great way to keep your trees looking healthy and vigorous. We specialize in offering this service twice a year. Once before the hurricane season starts and six months later, to keep your trees in good shape. So what procedure do we follow when pruning and topping trees? To begin, our arborist will perform a visual inspection at the top of the tree and work their way downward using the ‘one third and one quarter’ rules of pruning. We suggest not to remove more than one quarter of a tree’s crown in a season Main side branches should be at least one third smaller than the diameter of the trunk. For most deciduous (broadleaf) trees, we do not suggest pruning up from the bottom any more than one third of the tree’s total height. Where it is possible we will trim the side branches that form angles, one third off vertical and that form “10 o’clock” or “2 o’clock” angles with the trunk.
