cross-over and sucker branches reduces weight and susceptibility
of wind damage. Trimming dead branches eliminates falling hazards
and damaging insect harbors. Pruning allows light and nurishment
to the main canopy. Correct pruning promotes healing and eliminates
water intrusion. Abscess from broken limbs must be treated to
allow healing and prevent further damage.
should be kept six feet away from structures, wires and roofs.
Constant rubbing damages paint and roof surfaces. Leaves and
debris that fill gutters should be removed to rid standing
water. Don't allow trees to cost you extra repair bills.
Selectively removing inferior trees will allow desired trees
to mature quicker and with full canopy. Rule of thumb - if in
the drip line of desired tree, consider removing it.
Supporting main limbs by correctly installed cabling will reduce
strain on weakened branches and not damage the tree.
