Residential & Commercial Trimming, Pruning, and Removal
Pruning trees is necessary to keep our homes safe, to increase the value of one’s property, and help the tree develop in a healthy manner. As such we often think of ourselves as “stewards of the green environment”. After all trees are some of the grandest and most magestic living structures on Earth, and as such we treat them with good old “”TLC’ (tender-loving-care).
With regards to our tree services, the majority of our work time is spent up within the crowns of the large trees and the reasons we are there vary. We could be pruning trees to reduce the risk of failure during storms and high winds; or removing dead growth.
Utilizing ropes and specialized climbing gear made for this profession, we move around the trees, often with ease, removing broken limbs, diseased branches and growth, cut out dead limbs and overall give the tree a “haircut”.
An excellent way to guarantee yourself a healthy, strong crown and tree for that matter is to prune the tree when young and continue to prune the tree every few years and/or as necessary. This practice will correct what is called co-dominant leaders (two large trees coming from one), weak angular branch attachment, and overall gives the tree a higher survival rate during severe storms because the tree has room “to give” without branches colliding and tearing at each other.
TREE MAINTENANCE – PRUNING
Maintenance pruning is necessary if and when trees are planted to close to homes and structures, and are drooping over parking lots, driveways, or are even too low to walk beneath. This pruning is usually needed approximately every three to four years on a regular cycle. Often getting and maintaining ample roof clearance is tough to do without making the tree look as if it was butchered. BUT pruning back the lateral branches of sufficient size keeps the natural appearance of the tree.
This expense could be avoided entirely if the proper tree species would have been planted instead. We often see River Birch planted beside a foundation. They grow so fast and have a sweeping and spreading crown; making many a property owner confounded.
We remove trees for all sorts of reasons; the tree died, the house is getting larger, the old man is sick of raking leaves every fall. Whatever your reason, we make sure the tree comes down safely and efficiently with the latest equipment and up-to-date training.
Believe us when we say that tree removal is much more of a process than just cutting down a tree. To do it right and ensure no damage to other plant and tree life in your yard, not to mention your house or car, it demands a thorough knowledge of tree species and all the hazards associated with decay and disease in both live and dead trees.
Tree removal is not a job for some random contractor who rings your doorbell – it’s a very technical and delicate process. It’s definitely not something you want to leave to an amateur. Tree removal generally should be a last resort at your home or business, as trees not only provide aesthetic and economic benefits but also add value to your property if they are well-maintained. But if you are looking to put in a pool in the backyard or add a room to your home and need a few trees removed, or maybe that old oak is hanging dangerously over your home’s roof and it’s time to get rid of it before storm season, or for whatever reason you need assistance with your trees, hire the tree removal experts at almost PERFECT to get the job done right, and safely, the first time. This is not something you want to take shortcuts on, and we certainly won’t.

However, as trees become established, these tasks become more difficult, highly technical, and potentially dangerous to you, your property, or your neighbor’s property.
