We take pride in protecting our clients’ properties and investments.

Trees can be pruned year-round, depending on the tree.
Does your team haul debris and wood?
Yes, typically all debris and wood are hauled and chipped. All details are determined before the start of the work.
Does your team use spikes when pruning trees?
No, spikes are considered highly unethical in the tree service industry and, as such, we do not use spikes to climb living trees. Spiking was a common practice in the 1980s and still occurs today, so we are happy that you asked, however, we a very much against using spikes for pruning live trees.
Does your team top trees?
No, just like spikes, tree topping is highly looked down upon in the industry. Tree topping is the worst thing that can be performed since it can lead to decay, sunburn, or cause health issues to the tree.
