Our Tree Trimming Methods

Properly trimming & pruning trees is a form of art and science mixed together.  Anyone can start cutting branches from a tree, but not all individual or services know which limbs should be cut and the correct way to trim and cut them.

We begin by thinning the tree’s canopy, which allows more daylight to the inner part of the tree.  This helps make a well-built interior and increases the size of the tree’s trunk diameter.  The extra air flow prevents infection and disease.  If a tree can’t breathe, it can’t stay healthy.

As trees age, they have a tendency to grow sideways to get more sun light. Long lateral branches can actually put more damage on a tree and stop healthy development.  This is where structural trimming is a need.  We cut away this extra growth to give the tree a single trunk with even branch spacing.  This helps the tree grow up, not out.  With upright growth, the tree will live longer and remain in good physical shape.

We offer home & property owners affordable and professional tree removal, stump grinding and emergency tree service.  If you would like a free estimate on your tree trimming project, call us at (217) 388-5488 or fill out our online estimate form above and we will get back to you quickly with a price.
