Tree Removal

Deciding to remove a tree takes serious consideration as there are a number of factors to keep in mind. In some cases the decision is an easy one – when a tree is diseased or dying and cannot be brought back to good health.

Old trees that have broken limbs or tend to drop branches after a windstorm or extreme weather event may be candidates for removal. We will visit your property to evaluate the situation and present you with options.

Other trees that may end up being removed are those that pose a danger due to size or location. Then there are others that create a problem because of where they are located – shading a garden or blocking a view.

Regardless of the reason for removing a tree, we have the expertise to assist with making the right decision on the State College tree removal matter. We also have the skill and equipment to ensure the job is done efficiently and within your budget.

Tree removal of any kind is best left up to the professionals to handle simply because of the risks involved. For a free estimate on this or any of our services, call or e-mail us at Cutting Edge Tree Professionals today!

Tree Pruning

tree trimming state college
Pruning trees takes quite a bit of skill and knowledge in that any kind of cutting or tree trimming in State College results in trauma to a tree. There is a right and a wrong time to prune a tree related to its growth cycle.

The damage that can result from pruning at the wrong time in a tree growth cycle can cause far more harm than good. For example, a poor pruning can leave the tree susceptible to infestation and disease.

Once a tree is attacked by insects or disease the health of that tree is compromised. Once the tree is weakened you end up with a whole other set of circumstances to deal with all from pruning at the wrong time.

When a tree is properly pruned it has time to heal from the cuts and wounds created during the trimming process. Pruning can have a tremendous affect on the health of a tree and when it is done right it helps a tree grow.

Pruning can be done for many reasons including cleaning up the appearance of a tree and improving its overall visual appeal. A tree may need to be pruned because it has grown too big and is creating too much shade.
