In a tree’s native forest environment, there is stiff competition with other trees and vegetation. In order for it to fill what is usually a very limited space, the tree is forced to grow fast and upright.

Trees growing in man-made conditions (i.e., your backyard) usually have much more space and less competition. Consequently, they will spread out to form much broader trees than they would if located in a forest. Left to develop on it’s own, the branch structure will often be inadequate, thereby potentially developing hazardous limbs that eventually fail.

Over time and if left untreated, this could lead to an early tree death. Pruning trees, especially when younger, helps promote healthy trees with good branch architecture.

Homeowners should limit their tree pruning to small, lightweight branches, which can be reached from the ground. Pruning of large branches and/or working off the ground increase risk of personal injury and property damage. This should be left to professional tree experts with the proper equipment.

Whether your young trees need training, your mature trees require attentions, or your hedges can do with some shearing, BC Tree Service has the equipment and experience to handle your needs. We prune according to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards, which requires the use of certain tools, cutting techniques, and pruning methods.

Don’t take chances with your safety and the health of your property. Call in the experts when you need them.
