Pruning Services

Crown Cleaning

Crown Cleaning is required in situations where dead, damaged, or diseased branches need to be removed. This process reduces the risks of hazards and helps to promote health and vigor for the tree. Regular pruning eliminates these issues before they become a liability.

Crown Thinning

Crown Thinning is a pruning process that eliminates conflicting branches and crossovers from the interior of the canopy. This increases air flow and light penetration and reduces structural pressure on the tree.

Crown Raising

Crown Raising is a pruning process where the lower branches of the tree are removed to increase visibility and to provide clearance over streets, sidewalks, driveways and structures.

Crown Reduction

Crown Reduction is a pruning process where the height of the tree or overall size of the canopy is reduced to an acceptable level by pruning each branch back to a leader that will assume the new dominant role.


When trees are improperly pruned, the canopy may need to be restored. Crown Restoration is a process by which a damaged tree is trained to resume its natural growth habit. Restoration works to improve the tree’s appearance and structure after improper tree pruning or storm damage.

Vista Pruning

Vista Pruning is a process where branches are selectively pruned to create a viewing window within the tree. This is most commonly done to improve the view of seascapes, landscapes and mountains. Vista pruning is also done to expose street signs to drivers and pedestrians.

Tree Care Services

Tree Removals

Tree Removals are only considered as a last resort. It is common to see healthy trees damage sidewalks, foundations and driveways. Protecting your property is something we take very seriously. Our climbers are highly trained, certified arborists that are experienced in difficult and hazardous removals. We are fully equipped to remove trees of any size and caliber.

Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding is a process in which the stump is removed by grinding the stump and roots below the grade as deep as needed to disconnect all the roots from the stump. This will ensure that re-growth does not occur. Sometimes roots become intrusive and need to be pruned away from driveways, foundations and sidewalks. This is possible without removing the stump or harming the tree.

Annual Maintenance Program

We work with homeowners and property managers to develop annual tree management plans for homes and commercial properties based on allocated budgets, immediate and long-term care needs, and future goals.

These consultations can include tree risk assessment, appraisals, inventory & identification, diagnosis of diseased or damaged trees and plant health care solutions. Consultations are $165 unless follow up work is needed and scheduled, in which case the fee is waived.

Arborist Report

Arborist reports are considered legal documents which report the overall health of the tree, diagnosis of pests and diseases, recommended treatment programs, safety, liabilities, and hazards.
