Did you know pruning is the best preventive maintenance young trees can receive? It helps them develop a strong structure, preventing potential problems later on. Even when a tree is mature, pruning should be done every 2 years to keep it healthy.

Guardian Tree Systems of Sarnia can prune your trees, no matter their size. We have the knowledge to do it properly and the equipment and training to do it safely.

Here in Ontario, pruning is especially important. Selective removal of branches improves the tree’s strength against adverse weather by reducing wind resistance. It’s also important to remove any branches that have potential to break during high winds or storms.

Tree limbs shouldn’t hang over the top of your home’s roof. They’ll limit the air flow and sunlight over your house and cause moss to form. For lower branches, you want to allow clearance above lawns, sidewalks and streets and rooftops.

Pruning lets you control the tree’s growth. You can reduce the height or spread of a tree by selectively cutting back to smaller branches. The arborists at Guardian Tree Systems will follow the natural shape of the tree and take into consideration its placement within your property’s total landscape.
