When trees have a weak or heavy limb structure, cabling and bracing is required to prevent limb failure. Tree trunks and limbs can be connected with steel fasteners and high tensile cables to provide added support to weak crotch structures or over-extended limbs. Trees with V-shaped crotches or crotch formations where the bark is "included" are mechanically weak and should be inspected to see if they need to be cabled. Read More
Often times the lower branches of trees will need to be removed in order to provide clearance underneath. This is both for practical and aesthetic reasons. By removing these lower limbs, we make the area around the tree more open and the view is dramatically improved. The crown (or canopy) may be raised to aid vegetation growth around the tree, but also to give the tree a more uniform look. And for practical reasons, the crown is raised to allow easy pedestrian access under the tree and to prevent children from climbing. Often times there are other concerns, like car clearance over a driveway or street. Read More
Crown Reduction involves reducing the size of the tree's overall canopy. This is achieved by pruning the branches evenly throughout the crown. During this process dangerous dead wood and crossing branches are removed or pruned to minimize the possibility of pathogens and disease infecting the tree. The benefits of crown reduction are an overall enhancement to the aesthetic value of the tree, the prevention of later damage, the correction of unbalanced weight issues, reduction of vigorous growth, and it ensures healthy regrowth.

It is the most widely performed tree pruning service on residential and commercial landscape trees.
