Save money and decrease storm damage with preventative pruning
You can minimize the risk of storm damage to your trees by having them pruned. Often called preventative pruning or structural pruning, it decreases the chance of a tree falling or large branches breaking in wind storms.
How? Pruning removes dead and decayed branches, which are not as strong and could break easier.
With a method called tree thinning (or crown cleaning), branches are removed in the crown of the tree to lessen wind resistance so wind will pass through the branches.
Pruning now can save money later as you’ll lessen the chance of a tree falling and damaging your building or vehicle. Plus, your trees will live longer and look better so contact General Tree for your free pruning estimate.
