S & C Tree Service provides quality residential tree service. We can provide trimming and pruning ornamental and shade trees for enhanced growth, safety, the health of the tree and for aesthetics. When required, a crane is used is specialized hazardous tree removals.

Pruning involves one of several arborist techniques:

  • Canopy Raising

  • Crown Restoration

  • Crown Reduction

  • Crown Thinning

  • Crown Cleaning

Our experienced cutters and crews have all the tools to complete jobs professionally.  We climb trees using a rope and saddle or use an aerial truck when necessary. 

All debris is chipped on site with a large capacity chipper and hauled away.

Reasons for Pruning

The main reasons for pruning ornamental and shade trees include safety, health, and aesthetics. In addition, pruning can be used to stimulate fruit production and increase the value of timber. Pruning for safety involves removing branches that could fall and cause injury or property damage, trimming branches that interfere with lines of sight on streets or driveways, and removing branches that grow into utility lines.

Pruning for health involves removing diseased or insect-infested wood, thinning the crown to increase airflow and reduce some pest problems, and removing crossing and rubbing branches.

Pruning for aesthetics involves enhancing the natural form and character of trees or stimulating flower production. Pruning for form can be especially important on open-grown trees that do very little self-pruning.
