Living in the Northwest, trees are continually growing in our yards, business parks, and on our properties. Our climate is great for trees, but maintaining that growth so the tree remains healthy is very important. That is where the process of tree pruning comes in. This is a practice that involves removing selective branches, limbs, or buds from a tree. Our crews will remove dead, damaged, or diseased branches to maintain the trees stability and health. We can also help shape the tree by directing growth so that it stays healthy and can continue to grow without issues. Often our pruning decisions are based on trying to reduce the risk of falling branches and increasing the quality of growth or flowering branches. Fruit trees require special pruning practices to make sure the yield from the tree is optimized each year.
