Precision Tree & Shrub encourages pruning as a maintenance procedure to produce strong, healthy and attractive trees. We are experienced in pruning large trees where access with heavy equipment is impractical. Professional tree work on lakefront properties is a skill set we have developed over the years because of the many lakes in Oakland county. Our climbers can ascend to their work using a non-invasive, spurless climbing technique to safely reach target branches. On smaller delicate ornamental trees, work is done with ladders and high reach pruning tools. Precision Tree & Shrub can analyze, determine and recommend which type of pruning will be necessary to maintain or improve the appearance, health and safety of your trees and shrubs.

There are several reasons to prune trees: safety, clearance, appearance, to increase light and air penetration to the landscape below and for health. Pruning out deadwood that is 2" or larger will clear out compromised branches that could fall and cause injury or property damage. Pruning encourages trees to develop a strong structure and reduces the likelihood of damage during severe weather. Trees should be pruned to allow proper clearance over buildings, driveways, gardens or smaller viable trees. Vista pruning is the removal of specific branches to clear for a desired line of sight. Trees are also pruned for health by removing diseased or decayed, thinning the crown to increase airflow and conflicting or poorly attached branches.

Removal of a diseased, dangerous or dead tree is one of our specialities and we can handle the most challenging situations. Precision Tree & Shrub has the equipment and experience to take apart very large trees in small areas. Your removal may be done using conventional climbing and rigging techniques or we may use larger equipment such as an aerial lift or a truck mounted crane.

Our personnel are accustomed to moving large equipment into limited residential areas.

This technique is one of the most effective and economical ways of promoting tree and shrub health, while avoiding the use of unnecessary pesticide treatments.
