Tree Pruning/ Trimming


There are many reasons for pruning and trimming trees and shrubs.  We live with trees every day, and it is important to manage the risk associated with daily interactions with those trees.

Maintenance pruning/trimming is needed when trees are too close to houses, drooping over parking spaces, or have limbs too low to walk under.  This type of pruning is done on a two to three year cycle.

Structural pruning/trimming while a tree is young is a good way to ensure a healthy, strong crown. Young tree pruning corrects co-dominant leaders, weak angles of branch attachment, and gives a tree a much better chance of surviving a storm event later on in its life.

Pruning/trimming trees for aesthetic reasons can drastically enhance the beauty and value of your landscape.

While it seems easy enough, tree trimming and pruning is truly a job for professionals. Trimming a tree can be dangerous to you and damage the tree long term if not done properly.  Our company is fully licensed and insured, and we’re happy to provide references from past jobs.  Our experienced arborists understand the importance of proper tree care and are familiar with any tree you will find.

Whether your hedge or shrub is blocking unwanted views in the city, or puts an attractive edge to your property, hedges and shrubs have a tendency to grow very quickly in the urban environment.  If left unattended, they will create an unwanted eye sore and results in properties unsightly.  Our team at Boreal Tree Service can promise with our expertise’s that your hedges and shrubs will be well maintained and pruned so your property can stay and be beautiful. 



Cable support systems are a vital part of urban tree care and tree preservation. Since tree removals are our last resort, trees over time can create certain defects that can be harmful as well as hazardous to surrounding properties. Cabling allows the connection in the middle of the tree to the defected area which will give tremendous strength back into the tree. 



Although we strive to preserve and maintain for prolonging of a trees life, there are many situations in the city environment where tree removal is necessary. Situations for example if the tree dies, the tree is hazardous, or is planted in an unwanted area.  Give us a call for a consultation and meet with our arborists for the best course of action.
