Keeping up with your home is no easy task.  A lot of the work can be done yourself, but when it comes to tree maintenance, you should hire professionals.

Tree hazards can be tricky to see and tree work is often more dangerous than it seems.  Even trees that only show minimal signs of damage can present a danger.  A tree professional will be able to access the entire tree with a bucket truck or climbing harness and determine if there are any signs of damage.  Proper tree care requires the experience and techniques of an expert.  It demands extensive knowledge of not only tree biology, but safety practices when it comes to working on those trees.  Often times, tree crews work over houses or other property or electrical lines and they are fully aware of the proper steps to take to prevent any damage and maintain safety.  Safety is a priority and if you don’t know what you are doing, don’t try it yourself.  Serious injury or property damage can result.


Trimming or removing a tree is not as easy as it looks.  There is much more to it than just cutting a branch or limb and letting it fall.  Trees need to be cut at the right spot at the correct angle using proper tools to prevent property damage, injury, and damage to the tree.  A Certified Arborist knows how to trim a tree to develop the tree’s natural shape using a combination of tools and ropes.  Improperly trimmed trees can look lopsided and unsightly and are susceptible to further damage from weather and insects.  Improper trimming may even kill a tree.

Tree crews access a tree with a bucket truck or climb the tree using a specialized harness and ropes.  Trees are trimmed or removed methodically using a combination of specialized tools and ropes. Tree services have heavy-duty equipment to help lift large logs and dispose of the brush and debris that results when tree trimming or removal is done.  A professional tree service should also have both liability and workers’ compensation insurance to protect you and your property.
