At Gareth's Tree Service we have experience trimming many different trees from ornamental to full grown oaks or maples. We strive to do our best to meet our customer's needs while considering what is best for their trees. We have done it all from raising the canopy for extra clearance from the ground or from a roof, to thinning a tree, dead wooding, pruning for proper growth and reducing the crown. We do not top trees because topping is not a proper pruning technique, does not promote proper growth, nor does it look good.
Gareth's Tree Service has expertise trimming ornamental trees as well. The biggest request we hear about ornamental trees is "It was great for a couple years, but now it's too big. Can you make it smaller?" The saying, "An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure," fits perfectly here. It is very difficult to make a tree much smaller than it naturally is. Some trimming is possible but the best way is to have your trees trimmed before they outgrow their environment. The cost of trimming a tree every two or three years will save you money in the long run by eliminating or delaying (for many years) the cost of having to have the tree removed and replaced with a new, smaller one.
