Young Tree (Formative) Pruning

Young trees need regular pruning as a maintenance practice. Pruning throughout the life of your tree is a small investment critical to the long term health of your trees. Formative pruning helps develop strong branch attachment and sturdy trunks.  It minimizes costly structural pruning in the future and you can set your tree on a road of long term success. We prune with the long term health of your tree as our main priority. Some faster growing species can require pruning every 1-3 years. Young Formative Pruning = Less costly mature pruning or tree failure


"Now that I'm in a place where I don't have trees to be taken care of, I'll still give you guys two thumbs up. I always could count on you to come in, take down the trees, clean it all up and then W H A T ? Where were those trees again? And also your congenial atmosphere was always wonderful!"
Miss you guys, Barb Jacob

The stump grinding you did was in extremely hard to reach places and some you had doubts that you could get to but in the end you found a way to do them all! Also, we thought that we would be doing the clean up as it was not on your quote but you did that as well. Our place looks great now!
