The best tree care workmanship in the Kalamazoo ,Portage and surrounding areas

No tree should be pruned without first establishing clearly defined objectives. Seven Main objectives are described below, along with pruning types that help meet those objectives. These objectives serve as examples and can be extended or shortened to meet site conditions and customer expectations. Removing the correct stems and branches to accomplish specified objectives is as important as making correct pruning cuts. Even with proper pruning cuts, if the wrong branches --- or if too many branches ---are removed, nothing of merit has been accomplished.
