Do you remember that huge tree out back when it was just a sapling? If you’ve lived in the same place for a number of years, you might have watched one tree grow into a beauty. It now provides wonderful shade and may be the focal point of your landscaping. Could you even fathom the thought of starting over with a new sapling and waiting all those years to enjoy a mature tree again? It is said that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. A trained and skilled arborist will do everything in his/her power to preserve your beloved mature trees. Preventative tree care services by a licensed arborist are your trees’ best defense.

One of the services that an arborist can provide is tree trimming. While you might think tree trimming is just for appearance’s sake and keeping limbs off your pool cage, the truth is that this service makes for a healthier tree. Removal of a bad limb keeps diseases that may be present from spreading to other parts of the tree. A storm can result in added damage to a tree when the weakest point fractures, taking with it the healthy part of the tree. Tree trimming is, in this regard, part of unhealthy tree repair. Consider tree trimming before storm season arrives as part of your preventative tree care plan to avoid this situation.


Call a professional arborist to discuss preventative tree care services and any other tree services you may need. Taking proper care of your trees will help you have a beautiful yard for many years to come.
