Tree & Shrub Pruning

At Woolf Tree Service Inc. we will work hard to show you how beautiful a properly maintained tree can be. We are equipped to offer you a complete range of tree care options and we have the skills and experience to make sure the job is done right. Tree pruning and trimming is a common maintenance procedure that is often necessary to reduce risk; provide clearance; improve tree structure, health and appearance; and meet client needs. The plant health, size, structure, species characteristics, growth response and more must be considered when establishing a pruning objective. 

Did You Know?

  • The removal of live interior and lower lateral branches should be avoided. Removing too much foliage can result in the production of watersprouts on interior branches as a response from overpruning.

  • By providing shade, canopies can reduce the temperature of buildings by as much as 20 degrees in the summer.

  • If a tree has been topped previously and has sprouted vigorously or has sustained storm damage, crown restoration can improve its structure and appearance. 

  • Young and healthy trees typically tolerate heavier pruning than more mature trees. Large trees will require little trimming if early structural pruning is done as it grows.
