Prune to improve plant appearance

Appearance of a landscape is essential to a plant's display, look and feel. For most landscapes, a plant's natural form is best. When plants are pruned well, it is difficult to see that they have been pruned!  

Prune to protect people and property

  • Removal of hazardous trees
  • Prune and/or remove dead branches and shrubbery
  • Pruning weak or narrow-angled tree branches that overhang homes, parking areas, and sidewalks - anyplace falling limbs could injure people or damage property
