Sometimes tree removal is necessary. While people love their trees, if they become a hazard or outgrow the area they were planted in, they may need to be removed.

But working with a qualified company can help to ensure those risks are mitigated and your tree is removed safely.
Certain species of trees grow in a way, such as becoming V-shaped, that makes them a liability. Damage causing a split or crack in the tree can become problematic. However, trees can have these abnormalities and remain in overall good health. If that’s the case, cabling and bracing can be an effective solution.
If you have shrub species like a Boxwood or Holly and prefer a neatly sheared look, we can help. We typically shear shrubs once or twice a year, depending upon the homeowner’s wants and needs. Shearing helps to keep a shrub contained to its designated space in the landscape and maintains a neat and tidy appearance.
