Tree Trimming and Pruning St Louis MO
If you are a homeowner, you probably have trees that you love. You may love the shade or the shape of the tree or the privacy it gives you. Whatever the appeal, the downside of having trees on your property is dealing with damaged trees. Tree branches can decay and then damage your property.
Dead trees can create the risk of fires and fall on the house in a strong wind. For safety reasons, unless you have the experience and working knowledge of tree pruning, it’s a good idea to hire a tree service professional for your tree care.
Our tree service technicians are specially trained to identify disease and pests. They use special climbing and rigging techniques and the professional safety standards. We specialize in removing dead or excess branches from trees or shrubs.
We can clear the way for roads, sidewalks or utilities. We can improve the appearance, health and value of the tree. We can help you with summer pruning, trimming, securing broken branches, diagnosing pest problems or plant diseases, and fertilization.
Got Broken Branches?
Landscape trees need care to maintain their health and good looks. Pruning has to be done by a professional who understands the life cycle of a tree. Improper pruning can create lasting damage or kill the tree. Mature trees should be pruned only for corrective or preventive measures.
Since each branch that is removed can damage the tree, routine thinning is not generally needed. Routine trimming can be done in any season when there is a need to remove diseased or dead limbs. Tree growth can be maximized however, if the pruning occurs before the spring growing season. Older trees require more extensive pruning than young trees.

Hedges require frequent pruning. Once the foliage is the desired height, the new growth should be cut back whenever it grows another six inches.Most hedges need to be pruned twice each year, during the spring and summer.
Hedges should be pruned so that they have a wider base and a narrower top. This allows all of the foliage to receive the proper amount of sunlight and moisture.
Older or overgrown shrubs require more extensive pruning. Each year up to a third of the oldest and thickest stems should be cut down level with the ground. This brush removal encourages the growth of new stems directly from the roots. Standard pruning can be done when there are no longer any overgrown trunks left.
Whether you have overgrown shrubs like forsythia, cane-growth viburnums, honeysuckle, fruit trees and any other multiple stemmed shrubs, proper pruning is essential. Within one growing season, your shrubs will be full and natural shaped, like new plants.
