Professional Trimming, Pruning, and Shaping Trees in New Berlin, Waukesha, and Surrounding Areas


Why is Pruning Important

Pruning is the most important practice for healthy tree care that we perform and when executed properly is one of the best things we can do for a tree. The most common types of pruning are structural, cleaning, thinning, and raising.
Structural pruning is performed on young and middle aged trees to develop a sustainable trunk and branch arrangement. The younger the tree the better.
Cleaning is the selective removal of dead, diseased, detached, and broken branches to help reduce the movement of decay, insects, and disease into the rest of the tree. It is preferred on mature trees because it does not remove live branches unnecessarily but is preformed on trees of any age.
Thinning is the selective removal of live branches to reduce crown density to increase sunlight penetration and air movement through the crown.
Raising is the selective removal of branches to provide vertical clearance for buildings, signs, vehicles, and pedestrians.
All pruning work is performed in accordance with the ANSI A300 pruning industry standards.
Please do not top trees – Topping is an inappropriate practice which should be avoided.
Removals – We have the expertise and equipment to remove large and complicated trees as well as smaller trees.
Stumping – Using our remote controlled stumper on tracks, we can get virtually any stump with little impact on your turf and can fit through a 41” gate opening.
Cabling and Bracing Trees – We can often repair damaged trees and healthy trees that have poor structure to reduce the chance of failure and prolong their existence by installing cabling and bracing.
