properly trimming and pruning. Call our expert tree pruning and
trimming staff to enhance the safety, health, and beauty of the
trees in your landscape. We can thin branches out of your
deciduous trees to allow more sun in your yard. Thinning your
deciduous trees will also reduce the amount of leaves produced.
Thinning Fir trees allows wind to easily flow through the tree
alleviating some of the stress created by wind. Cutting out the
dead branches is an important safety measure all homeowners
should take to ensure the security of family, friends and pets.
Pruning tree branches and shrubs away from building structures

Information on Fruit Tree Pruning
“The purpose of pruning during the first 4 years of the trees
life is training- the creation of the basic framework which will
ensure satisfactory cropping in later years. With bushes and
standards this calls for fairly severe cutting back of the
branches in order to produce an open-centered and
freely-branched tree. In addition you must remove poor quality
wood- weak twigs, dead or badly diseased shoots etc.
After 4 years the purpose of cutting out wood is maintenance
pruning, the creation of a regular supply of new fruiting wood
balanced with the need to retain as much existing fruiting wood
as possible. This pruning is generally much less severe than
training, but you must continue to remove all dead wood crossing
branches and so on.
All this is winter pruning, designed to encourage shoot growth.
However, the main time to prune cordons, espaliers and dwarf
pyramids is in summer, and the role of cutting out wood here is
to inhibit shoot growth.“
