Tree Pruning

T .W. Enterprises, Inc. specializes in pruning large ornamental shade trees. Our arborists can

   determine what type of pruning is necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance and safety of your trees.

From removing a couple of low limbs so you can mow your lawn, to climbing to the top of your 100′ oak tree for a full crown thinning, there is no job to small or large.

We recommend a full prune on your trees which means climb to the top of your tree and thin out the center, remove the under growth, dead branches (dead wood), any crossing branches, and any broken or weak branches. In doing this, it can remove up to 1/3 of the foliage, reducing the weight and sail of the tree (wind resistance), removes dangerous/hazardous limbs, reduces the amount of leaves and seeds (like acorns) that drop into your yard and landscape. It allows the wind to blow through the tree, instead of on the tree, greatly reducing storm damage. Full pruning also allows sunlight to filter down through the canopy on the landscape shrubs, and turf to promote better growth. When the wind and light filter through the canopy after being pruned, it helps with the transportation and respiration of the tree, making the tree much more healthy as well as aesthetically pleasing.

Call today to have one of our arborists evaluate your trees and give you a free written estimate of what is recommended for the health of your trees and landscape. (207) 856-0046

Our techniques include:

  • Eliminating branches that rub together.
  • Removing limbs that interfere with wires, building façades, gutters, roofs, chimneys, or windows, or that obstruct streets or sidewalks.
  • Removing dead or weak limbs that pose a hazard or may lead to decay.
  • Removing diseased or insect-infected limbs.
  • Creating better structure to lessen wind resistance and reduce the potential for storm damage.
  • Training young trees.
  • Removing limbs damaged by adverse weather conditions.
  • Thinning or removal of unnecessary branches.
  • Improving the shape or silhouette of the tree.
