Arborists USED to be called Tree Surgeons. The pruning of and elimination of branches change the physiology of a tree. Properly performed and properly timed can assist the safety, health and longevity of the largest longest lived perennials on earth, Improperly timed and done too often begins their decline and death.
Please bare with us; Unless it is obvious to us that your tree is a hazard, we will always ask why you are leaning toward removal. In 47 years of tree care, President of LTC, Phil Berwick has expereinced that 9 out of 10 times a tree owner THOUGHT their tree or was TOLD their tree should come down, in reality really did not have to.
Too many tree 'cutters' are removing trees at the drop of a chainsaw. Too few human beings are planting. When we install a tree, we hold to the protocol an elderly gal told us many years ago: You plant a ten dollar tree in a hundred dollar hole.
