Expert Tree and Shrub Pruning Services
Our knowledgeable and experienced Certified Arborist knows that all tree and shrub pruning is not equal. The arborist assesses each tree or shrub individually and then decides what type of pruning is necessary to achieve the desired objective. Crown cleaning, crown thinning, crown raising, crown restoration, deadwood pruning and structural pruning are nationally accepted standards of tree pruning developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The standards are extensive and involved. They are there to protect the consumer.
Structural Pruning is one of our specialties. There are various types of hybrid trees specific to Wisconsin that benefit greatly from structural pruning. Autumn Blaze Trees are one of the most common (a hybrid of red maple and silver maple). They offer a rich fall color and grow quickly (exactly what many homeowners are looking for). Although they are a hardy tree, where the branches attach to the trunk can be weak if not properly cared for. Therefore a mature Autumn Blaze Tree will easily split, especially from a strong wind or heavy snowfall. It is best to keep up with pruning these trees from early on, roughly every 3-5 years. Our team is able to structurally prune year-round! If you know it's been over 5 years, contact an arborist right away.
Our knowledgeable and experienced Certified Arborists will help you benefit from these standards and assist you in determining what type of pruning your trees need. Always consider that properly pruned trees look better, minimize risk, are more healthy and increase value to your property.
