Why Should You Care About Pruning Your Trees?

Tree Pruning

Trees and shrubs are a lot like people; they tend to thrive when given care and attention.

Proper pruning techniques include the removal of misshapen, damaged or dead limbs. Rubbing branches, vertical stems, water shoots and inward growing branches are typically removed to maintain health, shape and safety. Each species of tree has its own natural look and shape that good pruning should maintain. Proper pruning allows for air flow to minimize damage from wind and weather. Naturally occurring deadwood must be removed for safety.

Although tree pruning can be done during any season, it is best done in winter when the tree structure is most visible. As an exception, a few species prefer to be pruned during summer to reduce water sprouting. A certified arborist from Maltby & Company will be happy to assess your pruning needs and make recommendations.

Pruning considerations:               

  • Aesthetics-shape and appearance
  • Improve structural integrity, control growth
  • Enhance flowering and foliage
  • Safety-remove dead & dying limbs
  • Clearance from structures, service wires, etc.
  • Minimize the effects of weather

I am so impressed by you and your team! Everyone I interacted with was professional, kind, courteous & helpful. It is so rare these days that a company exceeds your expectations and you have done just that.

Our neighbors on the street were in awe of the professionalism, speed of service, politeness and great job your team did.

(Your crew) made intricate and potentially dangerous work look routine. Everyone did a great job working together and cleaning up. The neighbors are also impressed and pleased. We are all excited about the possibilities for both yards now that the trees are out. I know it was a lot of work for you to put this job together and I appreciate your patience and diplomacy in dealing with all the parties involved.

Thank you very much! You have just increased the value of my house! Kind regards!

I also wanted to express my sincere thanks to you for your attention throughout the job and to your crews for an unbelievable job. Their assessment of what to cut and when and where was so precise, I knew I had selected the best of the best. Very professional, on time and clean up was so amazing it’s like the tree was never there.

From start to finish-initial phone call through final clean-up- I was so impressed with this company. I was a little nervous watching the entire process but felt reassured by the men’s calm demeanor and confidence as they worked. They worked quickly but carefully. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maltby & Co. to anyone.

They were excellent. They were spotless. When I came home there wasn’t one piece of evidence that anyone had been there, it was neat as a pin.

Our campus is brighter and completely transformed. Because of your hard work and enthusiasm, we added 14 beautiful new trees, 13 new bushes and 125 plants. A well maintained and beautiful campus represents an important visual expression of our commitment to those we serve.

I can’t say enough about Maltby Co., and your high level of professionalism and honesty. It is refreshing nowadays to know that there are still some great businesses out there that really care about their customers.

It was clear that Maltby’s commitment to safety is thorough and sincere.

The take down of our two diseased trees was accomplished quickly and without incident and was less noisy than our neighbor’s routine lawn care. The crew left the site very neat and even swept the street!

I gained a real appreciation for what an air spade can do.

I cannot imagine anyone doing this job more competently and professionally.

I wanted to tell you that your crew was extremely professional, courteous and friendly. They went out of their way to explain what was going to happen during the day and treated me with the utmost respect. (They) worked very hard…did an outstanding job cleaning up and took every safety precaution you could think of. I was so impressed with their work!
