Types of Trimming / Pruning Services We Offer:
This type of trimming allows for more air flow throughout the tree’s canopy area. More sunlight will shine on your lawn promoting a better looking yard and will allow for more air flow preventing stress on interior branches.
With this type of trimming we raise the height of lower hanging leaders. In Kansas City, branches must clear 10’ feet over sidewalks and 14’ over streets.
This technique is used when your tree has outgrown it’s intended area. It involves pruning back the height and width of the upper portion of the crown.
