While trimming is used to define the shape of hedges or small trees, at Townsend Arborcare we prune trees. Why? To reduce risk, improve or maintain health, develop an optimal structure and appearance, and prevent a tree from interfering with a built structure.Contact Us
How We Do It
Pruning involves the judicious removal of plant parts to achieve an objective
Each branch or tree part requires careful judgment because a cut influences a tree or bush’s future growth.
When assessing a tree, we are considering tree structure, potential risks, branch clearance, tree health, density, restoration, size management, shrub rejuvenation, flower or fruit production, views and aesthetics, and wildlife habitats.
Why We Do It
Cultivating beauty now and into the future
Not only does pruning help your landscape thrive by focusing on the natural beauty of your trees and shrubs, but it also helps sustain growth and longevity while ensuring the plant’s health, structure and natural characteristics.
"Townsend Arborcare did a great job pruning the ash tree in front of our home. We appreciate the arborist’s patience with the tree and the care he took to prune the tree thoughtfully."
