Tree trimming and pruning is a science and an art form
Tree trimming and tree pruning services are the cornerstone to any successful tree care program. It is critical to sustaining your tree’s health, stimulating growth and retaining its natural appearance, but if you try to trim your trees yourself, you could end up trimming incorrectly, causing serious damage to your beloved asset.
Pruning and trimming is a science as well as an art form. The science involves a deep understanding of tree biology, recognizing plant flaws and skillfully eliminating or minimizing defects without hindering the tree’s growth or causing irreparable damages. The art form is masterfully trimming and pruning by removing proper deadwood that aesthetically shapes your tree to enhance the beauty of your landscape.
