    Scotty Tree can determine the type of pruning necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees. Pruning techniques include removing limbs that: 

    • obstruct streets or sidewalks 

    • interfere with utilities or structures 

    • are dead, weak, or decayed and pose an unacceptable risk 

    • have been damaged by storms 

    • show symptoms of disease and infestation

    • will increase light penetration and reduce wind resistance within the canopy upon removal (thinning)

    • Other pruning techniques are used to maintain proper structure in young trees, improve tree shape or form, and reduce the likelihood of future damage during storm events. 

    Emergency Tree Care

    Storms may cause limbs or entire trees to fall, often landing on other trees, structures, or cars. The weight of storm-damaged trees is great, and they can be dangerous to remove or prune. An arborist can assist in performing the job in a safe manner while reducing further risk of damage to property. 


Book a consultation to have your property and trees assessed by an ISA certified arborist.
