Tree Pruning

Tree Pruning

Tonk’s Tree Service knows when to prune your trees or when to leave them alone and Sometimes the best thing for trees is to just leave them alone.Often I will come out to and see trees that were hacked on to try and get a view. Just to find that there was once one nice central leader there are now multiple stems creating a sometimes unsafe and high maintenance situation. Once a tree has been topped, the new top that comes out from where it was topped is not as strong as the original stem. There are othe options in getting the view. Sometimes by removing the clutter we find that the ocean vies behind the tree is only enhanced with the tree.

We also prune for clearance. Right now there is a lot of concern about wild land fire so the smaller tress can get removed and we can limb up the larger ones. By saving your larger trees you are preserving the forest because trees are the lungs of our planet.

Because of the many benefits of trees we often live in close proximity. The many benefits outweigh the risks but the homeowner can him or herself in conflict with a limb or branch. When trees haven’t been pruned often times there is a rubbing branch creating a bad spot. I will also know when a large limb is getting too heavy and by taking some weight out of the limb can last for decades to come. We also reconiginize that there are certain situations when cabling two or more stems together is a good choice. This takes a commitment from the homeowner to agree to have the system monitored over the years. If you’ve got some trees around your house, give us a call and we can talk about your options. If you are concerend about the trees around your home. Once a tree has been topped, the new growth is not as strong as the original. There are other options.
