Trees offer many benefits such as shade, erosion control, wildlife, birds and privacy just to name a few.

How and when to prune?
Pruning is vital to maintain a tree’s health and aesthetics. It is best to prune small amounts at regular intervals rather than removing large quantities of foliage infrequently. Removal of a trees larger branches should be avoided wherever possible. Multiple smaller cuts are preferable as they are much easier for the tree to heal compared to large wounds.
Determining which limbs to cut and where to cut them can be a complex process and should be left to professionals. A tree pruned incorrectly may never recover.
