    Protect Your Trees From The Next Storm


    We look after our team, so they will look after you!

    Structural Pruning is recommended for maintaining or improving tree health and structure. Hazard pruning is recommended to reduce the danger of a specific target caused by visibly defined hazards in a tree.



    Hazard Reduction or Maintenance Pruning should consist of one or more of these types:

    1. Crown Cleaning - The selective removal of one or more of the following items: dead, dying, or diseased branches,weak branches, and watersprouts.
    2. Crown Thinning -The selective removal of branches to increase light penetration, air movement, and reduce weight.
    3. Crown Raising - the removal of the lower branches of a tree to provide clearance.
    4. Crown Reduction - decreases the height or spread of a tree.
    5. Vista Pruning -Selective thinning of framework limbs or specific areas of the crown to allow a specific view of an object from a predetermined point.
    6. Crown Restoration - improves the structure, form and appearance of trees which have been severely headed, vandalized, or storm damaged.
    7. Bark Tracing - A process where you clean cut around the wound caused by a fallen or broken branch. Tracing will hasten the healing process.

    At GLC we can evaluate your trees through monitoring, use proper cultural practices, identify and assess potential hazards and treat problems with practical solutions.
