Pruning is both an art and science, there is much more than just taking a saw to a tree branch.  Trees and shrubs require many different types of pruning.  This is dependent on the species, size, and age of the tree or shrub; as well as the goals for the property and client.   With this information, our arborists will find the balance between the plant and client needs.

There are many reasons why pruning is required for trees including health, aesthetics, safety, and containment of growing space.

We offer the following types of pruning:
  • Maintenance pruning
  • Crown cleaning, reduction, and raising
  • Deadwood pruning to eliminate storm damage and other hazards
  • Vista pruning
  • At Friendly Tree Service we adhere to the ANSI A300 standards set forth for the tree care industry
