Tree Trimming Grosse Pointe MI

All trees require pruning and trimming at one time or another. Properly pruned trees are much healthier and better able to fight off pest and cultural threats. The amount of live tissue that should be removed depends on the tree size, species and age, as well as the pruning objectives. Younger trees will tolerate the removal of higher percentage than that of mature trees. It is important to remember that it is easier for a tree to recover from several small pruning wounds faster than one large wound. The older and larger a tree becomes, the less energy it has in reserve to close wounds and defend against decay or insect attack.

• PRUNING/CROWN CLEANING: Thinning and removal of dead, diseased, damaged, broken, stub and interfering limbs retaining actual crown as set forth by industry standards.
