Tree Pruning

Tree Pruning.jpg

Tree pruning is one of the most important things that you can do for your trees. Pruning is not only cutting damaged tree limbs or ensuring the visual appearance of the tree is appealing. There are many health reasons for a tree to be pruned and taken care of. With the right pruning at the right time, you can encourage the growth of your tree, increase the production of flowers and fruits, and increase the overall health of the tree. There are more benefits to doing the right amount of pruning at the right time, including:

  • Helps mitigate the possible damage that can be done by a fallen dead limb
  • Can improve the tree’s structure
  • Can be the difference between a healthy and a dying tree
  • Improves the overall aesthetics of a tree
  • Can help the tree reduce the wind resistance

Every tree species has different attributes, including root-spreading patterns, the way they commonly grow, time to grow to its adult size, and more. Every detail for each type of tree counts when the time comes and you need to prune trees. The wrong trim or not being able to diagnose a problem with the tree can result in killing the tree or have it break easier due to weak structures.

Don’t let your beautiful trees suffer or die because of a lack of pruning. You can contact us today to get a free estimate and we will be more than happy to help you!

Tree Removal

It is true that a healthy tree can stand the test of time and seem to us to be an immortal giant, but like any living being on this earth, death is inevitable.

A damaged or diseased tree can be a hazard that can cost its owner a lot of money if it were to fall on a car or a house and, ultimately, it could injure someone if a broken branch would fall down at the wrong time. The team at A-1 Tree and Landscaping Services is here to help you make the decision and remove any tree, no matter the size, in a safe and efficient way — with our experts you don’t have to worry about anything!

Have a Tree past its prime?

Contact us, we can help!

There are a multitude of reasons why removing a tree would be a better solution. A trained eye and years of experience are required to know when a tree is past its prime and needs to be removed.

How Do You Know When it’s Time to Remove a Tree?

There are physical aspects that can determine the health and structure of a tree, and knowing what each one means can help you decide whether the tree needs pruning or it needs to be removed.

Tree Health

If you can identify that more than 50% of the tree is damaged or could be deemed “hazardous” by the local forestry department, it’s imperative that the tree is removed as soon as possible. A tree in such a condition could be detrimental to surrounding property and people.

A thorough inspection of the tree is required to assess the damage. Don’t wait until it’s too late to check your trees. Learn more about tree removal or contact us today to help you!

Hollow trees.jpg

Hollow Trees

If a third or more of the tree’s trunk is hollowed out, it means that the overall structure of the tree is compromised and it’s time for tree removal.

tree species.jpg

Tree Species

Certain tree species have a tendency to overgrow and become a nuisance. Others can become an actual problem if the roots start heading the direction of a building structure or it’s raising the floor threatening the foundation of the building.

There are also some trees that harbor diseases and insects that can affect other trees around it. When either of these problems occurs, it is recommended that the tree would be removed to avoid any problems in the future.

Trunk Damage.jpg

Trunk Damage

If the trunk of the tree has heavy cracks, seams, wounds, or it has suffered an impact like those commonly caused by storms or vehicle crashes, it could be the time to remove the tree. If less than 25% of the tree is damaged, the tree can perhaps heal. It is recommended that you keep a close eye on the tree and call your local experts of A-1 Tree Services to remove the dying tree.

Leaning Tree

A tree’s natural and organic growth can vary in angles and how it leans. Yet, a tree that has offset itself more than 15 degrees from vertical should be removed. The leaning could be a sign of weak roots or flaking structure.

Each tree species can have similar visual factors that for one it means that the tree it’s on its way out and for another tree, it could mean that it’s going through a phase. This is why it’s so important to consult with arborists and tree care specialists to assess the damage of your tree and make sure that the problem does not turn into a tragedy.

Stump Grinding

A tree stump can be a reminder of what was once a beautiful tree. Unlike other tasks such as removing a tree or pruning, grinding out a stump is not so complicated and it needs less planning. At A-1 Tree and Landscaping Services, we believe that it’s always a good idea to grind and remove any stumps you might have in your property.

You might be wondering why removing a stump is as important as pruning a tree at the right time or removing a tree when its time has come. Although the stump does not pose the same threat, it should be removed for the following reasons:

It Serves No Purpose

A dead stump in the middle of your yard does not have any aesthetic appeal and it can actually be a nuisance. When mowing your lawn it can block your natural flow which you need to make your yard look neat and clean with straight-line patterns.

No More Sprouting

If you removed a tree and left the stump behind, chances are you are going to deal with another problem coming from that tree at some point. You can have the tree stump’s roots continue to spread and potentially work its way to start growing vertical again. If this starts happening you are most likely going to need another tree removing service and some stump grinding.

diseases and pests.jpg

Diseases and Pests

A tree stump can be home to a lot of pests and diseases that can affect you in the long run. Many pests can take refuge in the stump and start reproducing which can turn into another problem.

One of the pests that you can potentially be dealing with is termites. After they reproduce in the stump they could potentially move to your home and start eating away the wooden structure.



A tree stump is an accident waiting to happen. For kids and the elderly, the stump can become a headache. Leaving a stump unattended can also become a legal problem if someone is to fall and hurt themselves on your property because of it.
