Tree trimming is one of the most common tree maintenance procedures. In a forested environment, trees will grow well with only Mother Nature’s pruning. Trees in urban environments like in the DC area need more care and attention. Periodic pruning and trimming are essential for these urban trees. Trimming is necessary for several reasons. Sometimes trees have to need trimming to maintain a distance away from structures. Some also need pruning to create a proper growth pattern and structure. Tree trimming also improves visual aesthetics. Improper pruning can create lasting damage and may shorten the tree’s life. Each cut made has the potential to change the growth pattern of the tree. Mistakes may ruin a tree's health. We provide proper tree trimming at a valuable price. Read More

Tree limbs will grow wherever sunlight is available with the right resources. When there is the issue where limbs to become overextended or have weak branch unions, a cable may help. Cables, braces, and through-rods can prolong the life of a tree. The practice of cabling trees includes attaching a cable to the main limbs inside the tree. Cabling comes in both steel or rope winch line. The cable isn't piano wire tight but instead is tight enough to support the weight and sway. When the limbs move, the cable allows the tree to not reach the point of failure. We install the cable two thirds from the branch union to the tips of the limbs. Contact us for more information about tree cabling. Read More
Lower branches of trees will need maintenance 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. This may improve the view of your house or landscape. We raise the crown (or canopy) to aid vegetation growth around the tree, but also to give the tree a more uniform look. Tree elevation allows easy pedestrian access under the tree or to prevent children from climbing. Often times there are other concerns, like car clearance over a driveway or street. We are more than able to handle your tree elevating needs. Read More

Proper tree thinning can help to keep proper light and wind penetration in the crown of your trees. Thinning is only necessary for a tree that is overgrown or needs limb weight reduced to prevent the branch from failing. Wind penetration allows air to flow through instead of acting like a wind-sail. Reducing wind sail on a limb reduces the risk of failure. Light penetration is also achieved which encourages growth. Over thinning may have negative effects on the tree's health and structure. Click on to read more about tree thinning. Read More
