Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Although forest trees grow quite well with only nature’s pruning, landscape trees require a higher level of care to maintain their structural integrity and aesthetics. Pruning must be done with an understanding of tree biology. Improper pruning can create lasting damage or even shorten the tree’s life.
Damage, disease or safety concerns can turn some trees from an asset into a liability.
Bolting and cabling are effective methods of preserving and strengthening a potentially weak or hazardous tree. Bolting is a method used to strengthen a weak or splitting crotch or union usually in the trunk of a tree. Cabling is used to support heavy limbs and to prevent limb failure under unfavorable weather conditions.
Stump grinding is an efficient method of removing the roots and stump of a tree once the upper portion has been removed. Stump grinding is also a good method to control water sprouts or off shoots from an advantageous root system.

There are many different pests and diseases specific to a certain species of trees. Correct and accurate identification can lead to proper treatment for your trees and prolong their existence and prevent costly removal and replacement.
Tree Fertilization and Conditioning
Fertilizing and soil conditioning can greatly increase the overall performance of your trees. Soils vary with different nutrients necessary for different actions within a tree's biological function.
