  1. Do I have to be home for an estimate?

    If you can mark the trees you’d like us to look at, draw a map, or clearly describe them, you do not have to be home for us to estimate your tree removal or pruning. We’re happy to make an appointment and meet with you as well.

  7. Can you work around utility wires?

    The proximity we can work to a utility wire depends on the type of wire. We have proper training to identify hazardous electrical situations and there are some instances where we will have the utility company create a buffer zone before we will perform the work. We prioritize safety.

  9. What's the best time of year to prune my trees?

    Most trees can be pruned year round with little change in the results.  Typically, fruit trees are pruned in the late winter or early spring if one is trying to maximize fruit production.  If heavy pruning is to occur on trees that have heavy sap flow in the spring, such as maples, we’ll avoid pruning in the spring.

    Some trees, such as Ash, are better pruned in the dormant season to help control insect or disease issues. This can help stop the spread of Emerald Ash Borer.

  11. How often should I prune my trees?

    Suggested pruning schedules vary based on a tree’s species, age, and size. Mature trees generally work well with a schedule between 3-5 years. Younger trees that often benefit from more structural adjustments, we often suggest pruning aver 2-3 years. For fruit trees where fruit production is the goal, pruning every year is best.
