Pruning Overview

There is a large volume of science involved in tree pruning. The arborist must consider the physiological characteristics that are species-specific in order that they get the best and longest lasting results.  Our certified arborists in State College can take care of any pruning job. There are many things that can go wrong with poor pruning of healthy trees and you will want to avoid the problems that may occur as a result of improper or poor pruning methods.

Pruning landscape trees in Pennsylvania is a whole different matter as there are considerable OSHA Regulations and ANSI guidelines that we must adhere to. This is one more reason to consider a professional when it comes to pruning.

When To Consider Pruning

Trees with various growth issues such as crossing branches, dead or hazardous branches, and storm damaged limbs, or that have branches growing into structures or power lines should be pruned. The same goes for trees with branches that are low and present hazards to people and vehicles.

Cosmetic reasons for having trees pruned include trimming trees that have grown too large and may be blocking a view or other visual feature. Another visual reason to prune is when a tree has sustained damage from a pest infestation and needs a trim to clean up how it looks.

Other Benefits to Pruning

One of the things to keep in mind about proper pruning is that it keeps trees healthy and assists with enhancing the value of your property. Well groomed trees and shrubs make your property inviting and a pleasant place to be for you and those you entertain at your home.
