There are a variety of reasons why a tree needs to be pruned. Perhaps you have some branches that are leaning over your home that need be removed. Removing deadwood from a tree is very important since these dead limbs can come crashing down at any moment posing a risk to people and property. Maybe you have a tree that has become a host for a pesky pest that has been feasting on your particular tree.

Tree Pruning Tips and Advice
We are frequently asked what is the best way to go about pruning a tree. How do we assess the tree's overall usefullness and health? The first thing we consider is whether the tree poses any potential hazards to your property. For example, could it potentially fall onto your home or any other structure? Does it have any dead overhanging branches that need to be removed before they potentially fall and harm someone or something. These hazards must be addressed first.
Secondly, we consider the overall health of the tree. The idea behind pruning a tree is to encourage the tree's growth and improve upon it's health and longevity. It's important to note, that as a general rule of thumb, you do not want to remove anymore than a 1/3 of the tree otherwise too agressive pruning can be fatal and leave the tree suspectible to disease.
