Pruning and Trimming
Live Oak Tree Service specializes in quality pruning. Tree pruning can improve a trees safety, health and improve the overall look and appearance of the trees on your property. Proper tree pruning can help prevent storm damage. All pruning is done in accordance with ANSI A300 Pruning Standards. No spurs are ever worn for any pruning, only for removals. Spurring a tree is easier, but not the proper way to climb. Spurring punches multiple holes / wounds into the vascular system of the tree, leaving it susceptible to disease, bacteria, etc. All tree services and all homeowners have their own idea of what a pruning job entails. Be sure to ask questions. Some tree services call pruning the removal of a few branches. A quality pruning job will include crown cleaning and the removal of all deadwood 3/4" and up. Remember, with pruning you get what you pay for. The cheapest price does not represent the best job.
