There are reasons to prune a tree, reasons like maintaining the health, training the plant, rejuvenating the tree, improving the quality of branches, flowers and the tree as a whole. When beginning a job, the specialists at Joe’s Tree Care take an objective look at the job before them. They take into consideration the health of the tree and the client’s request. First we remove all dead branches back to the stem, this sometimes opens the canopy enough so that the consumer is satisfied, but other times due to requests of the client, infestations or disease on the tree, the team must continue. Removing lateral or sick branches is a way to insure the health of the tree and to guarantee that it is trained according to the requirements the client. Finally we dress the wounds made by trimming and pruning because there is strong evidence that diseases can get in through said wounds if they are left untreated. Contact us to set up a free estimate.
