Precision Pruning / Trimming

The main reasons for pruning ornamental and shade trees include safety, health, and aesthetic. Proper crown thinning & dead wood removal will reduce hazards, improve aesthetics and tree health. Proper pruning on a regular basis will greatly extend the life expectancy of your trees, enhance your view and allow more light into your yard and home increasing your property value. We prune/trim according to ANSI standards.
Periodically it becomes necessary to trim your trees. In spring and summer months when there is significant rain fall trees grow rather quickly causing overgrowth. You will notice during these periods that tree limbs may hang low and touch the roof. It’s at this point when storms and strong winds occur that your overgrown trees are susceptible to limb damage or breakage.
When should you trim?
Homeowners frequently ask, “when should I trim my trees”? Answer = Outside of the above mentioned overgrowth it is usually a personal preference or when trees look untidy or in need of a clean-up pruning. In Texas you can trim trees year round. It is important to know that no more than 25% of the canopy (foliage) should be removed when trimming trees; and dead wood can be trimmed at any time.
Stump Removal & Tree Cabling
Stump grinding is the process of stump grinding or shaving a stump down with a hydraulic machine. We generally grind the stumps down 6-7 inches below grade level. We can go deeper upon request.
Cabling is the process of securing a cable to a threatening tree limb to reduce the chances of it breaking or prevent damage to a structure below.
