Great trees need great pruning
Lopping off a few branches or cutting back all the branches to make a tree shorter are NOT the same thing as professional pruning. In fact, those things can make your tree unsafe, cause insect and disease problems, and even kill the tree – not to mention create an unattractive appearance.
Tree Pruning Services for Parts of Montgomery & Bucks Counties
to keep your trees healthy, beautiful, and safe
If you want to preserve mature trees and shrubs in your landscape or nurture younger plants to optimal beauty, pruning is an essential practice. Even if a mature tree has not been properly cared for in years, professional pruning can often correct problems.

Our primary goal is to ensure the safety of your trees - and pruning is critical to doing that. Pruning also preserves and enhances the health, structure, and natural beauty of your trees and shrubs.
We believe in proper pruning to improve the health, structure, and appearance of your trees and shrubs and prolong their life by removing dead, dying, diseased, interfering, and objectionable branches.
Great Pruning. Beautiful Trees.
Below are some typical problems residents in our Montgomery & Bucks Counties service areas have with their trees, and the ways in which professional tree trimming and pruning can fix the problem.
Raising The Canopy
- Your tree is blocking access to buildings or obstructing cars and pedestrians
- It’s getting in the way of your view
By removing selected lower branches from a tree, crown raising can provide additional clearance to open up vistas and restore access.
- There isn’t enough sunlight or airflow through the center of the tree
- Your tree has some very heavy branches or lots of branches competing for space
- Your tree has structural defects and/or is at risk of damage during storms
When thinning a tree, branches are selectively pruned out to reduce the density of live branches in the tree canopy. This increases light penetration and air movement throughout the tree, stimulates interior growth and reduces wind resistance (which decreases the risk of storm damage). Done properly, thinning maintains the tree’s natural shape.
- Your tree is too tall or too wide for the space it’s in
- It’s encroaching on utility lines or structural elements (such as your roof)
- You don’t want to cut down the tree but it's just too big
Reduction pruning reduces the overall size and/or spread of the tree. This isn't "shearing" or “topping” a tree - it's precision work that cuts each branch at just the right spot to help maintain the overall form, health, and structural integrity of the tree.
- You can see dead, dying, diseased, crowded, or spindly branches throughout the tree
Crown cleaning involves the removal of all branches that aren’t contributing to the overall health and appearance of the tree. We can also remove items that shouldn’t be in the tree canopy. The end result is a healthier and better-shaped tree.
