What to Ask A Tree Trimming & Pruning Service
When talking to any company about tree and shrub pruning, make sure to discuss with them exactly what you want done to your trees. Consider these questions:
- Are your trees growing too close to your house, roof, or wires?
- Do you want to be conservative, leaving as many branches as possible, or do you prefer a different approach, with more extensive trimming?
- Do you want low branches removed for easier mowing?
- Are there any dead branches on your tree?
- Does your tree seem to be dying or unhealthy?
Our team will work with you to try to give you exactly what you want (as long as it does not compromise the tree’s health or present a safety concern), as well as provide recommendations based on the health of your trees and our years of experience. The M&M Tree Care team is comprised of trained professionals, led by six ISA certified arborists.
We follow ANSI A300 Pruning Standards, dividing projects into Fine pruning, Maintenance pruning or Safety pruning projects.
