Tree Trimming & Pruning
Maintain Your Trees
Tree trimming provides a variety of benefits to your trees and landscape:
Our tree pruning services include the removal of diseased, broken, or dead branches. This removes disease-causing insect habitat and prevents decay-producing fungi from penetrating and infecting other areas of your tree. The removal of live branches is occasionally necessary to allow increased exposure to sunlight and circulation of air within the canopy. We also remove crossing and rubbing branches to eliminate future wounding sites and improve structure.
Tree pruning can protect against storm damage from Kansas ice, snow or wind storms, and the danger of falling limbs. This is particularly a concern for trees along pedestrian paths, driveways, and surrounding homes and buildings. Also, it is often necessary to prune trees with low-hanging branches in certain areas in order to eliminate interference with pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Appearance and Restoration
Tree pruning for appearance and restoration is essential for maximizing the beauty of formal plantings. It also assists with landscape maintenance and tree preservation.
Young tree pruning is pruning performed for structural enhancement. This important procedure helps ensure that your new trees have desirable branch architecture and structural integrity. Proper pruning of specimens when they are young reduces the potential of costly problems and the need for structural support as your landscape matures.

Trees are susceptible to secondary infections or infestations if primary stressors are not addressed. Multiple, compounding issues kill most trees rather than one single issue. Each issue should be addressed as it arises. Timely diagnosis and treatment can prevent a downward spiral, ultimately resulting in death of the tree.
