Tree and Shrub Pruning

Whether you want to ensure a healthy future for a young tree, or maintain the integrity of a stately old tree, Family Tree Care is in the business of professionally trimming and pruning them all. Regularly pruning young trees helps them to develop a healthy and sound structure. On older or thicker trees, pruning helps the tree to maintain structural stability. For all trees, pruning helps improve the health and structure and reduces your liability due to failures during windy and stormy days.

Tree Cabling & Bracing

To help extend the life and increase the structural integrity of your cherished but potentially weak trees, call Family Tree Care for cabling and bracing services. Cables and bracing rods can be added to the tree to help add support to the weak branches/stems and reduce the risk of these limbs falling during storms.

Tree & Shrub Removal

Unfortunately it is sometimes necessary to remove a tree from your property for reasons such as insect or disease infections that are beyond curing treatments or that it has completely died. Rely on Family Tree Care to efficiently and properly remove it. Don’t risk the dangers of attempting less than professional tree removal, and call us today!

Stump Removal

Old tree stumps not only take away from your curb appeal, but they can pose a tripping hazard, cause new and uncontrolled tree growth around the stump, attract insects, and take up precious yard space that you could do something else with! Don’t let another season go by without addressing the stump in your yard, and allow the professionals at Family Tree Care to expertly remove it.
