“Pruning is the single best ‘investment’ a property owner or community can make to ensure the survival and lengthen the life span of their trees.” according to Peter Gerstenberger, senior advisor for safety, standards and compliance for the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA).
Many trees that exist on private property need some gentle direction to keep them healthy and safe. Proper pruning removes dead or diseased branches, provides clearance from overhead structures and lines, trains young trees how to grow into structurally sound mature trees, and is essential to the health of many trees. There are, however, proper ways to prune and many considerations go into the planning process, such as, the age of the tree(s), species, and location. By contacting a Certified Arborist, you are making the first step toward a safe and healthy landscaped area.
