Tree pruning and trimming can prolong the life of your tree by fighting off drought conditions and insect and disease issues. It can improve air circulation, which reduces both disease incidence and the possibility of damage from storms and high winds.
The Jackson family offers services that keep the safety of your family as a first priority. Removing dead limbs or overextended limbs decrease the likelihood of breakage and keep branches from interfering with wires, buildings, sightlines, or yard activity.

Our tree pruning and trimming services include –
- Crown Cleaning: This is the removal of dead, broken, and crossing limbs, sucker sprouts on trunks, and weak or diseased limbs. A crown cleaning improves structure, appearance, and health of the tree.
- Crown Thinning: Crown thinning is the careful selection of branches to be removed to achieve increase in sunlight penetration, airflow, and significantly reduce weight in the crown of a tree. Pruning by crown thinning helps stimulate and maintain interior foliage.
- Crown Reduction: This procedure reduces the height and/or spread of a tree by pruning back the tips of its limbs. Crown reduction is only for soft-wooded trees such as a Bradford pear, since they are the most prone to break in a storm.
- Crown Raising: This practice properly removes lower branches to provide clearance for homes, parking, etc.
