Tree Pruning and Trimming
Serving All of Michigan
Pruning, also known as, “trimming,” is done to aid in the development of good structure in growing trees and shrubs. It involves the removal of crossing, co-dominant, dead, diseased, dying or broken limbs to prevent the spread of diseases and safety hazards. If improperly done, it can be a source of stress on mature trees and shrubs and that is why our highly experienced Arborists make all cuts according to the ANSI A300 standard. This practice allows for maintaining space between buildings, streets, utility lines and other plants and providing necessary clearances while preserving and improving the natural structure of trees and shrubs.
