Arboriculture

Before
After

Correct pruning of your landscape trees and shrubs, increase the health and value of the plants, while improving the aesthetics and value of your home.

I work with trees that are 25’ or shorter on a ladder. I use hand tools to stay away from noisy, polluting gas powered equipment. Trees and shrubs get a better shape pruning by hand.


Before I start, I talk with the client to understand their wishes and needs, and the reason they want the tree or shrub pruned. It is best to know exactly the expectations of the client before any pruning starts. Once the limb is gone, it cannot be put back on! I work with the structure of the tree, and prune for the best shape and form of the tree. I do not top trees!

I have an artistic eye while pruning, and have a great feel for Japanese maples.

My belief is to observe the tree or shrub, prune correctly, step back, and look at the tree or shrub again, and to have a ‘light hand’ at pruning.
