What are my pruning options?

Depending on the job, your pruning options include:


Cleaning is the removal of dying and diseased branches from the crown of a tree.


Thinning selects specific branches to improve the structure and increase air movement through the tree.


Raising removes lower branches to provide clearance for structures and buildings.


Reduction reduces the size of a tree to maintain its form and integrity.

Why is stump grinding necessary?

Stump grinding is a specialized process to remove stumps on your property. After a tree has been cut to ground level, the stump is ground into small wood pieces that create mulch, which can be reused in your grass and soil. Rather than digging up a large root system attached to the stump, grinding it down allows it to be covered with dirt until it decays.

When should cabling and bracing be used?

Cabling can be used to protect, preserve, or prevent damage to existing trees. If your tree’s limbs are at risk of failing, cabling is used to protect an otherwise unhealthy tree that has weak branches. If the tree is weak, cabling is used to preserve its aesthetic value. If the tree poses a risk, cabling is used to protect it from falling over a populated space.
