Whether you own or manage a shopping mall, office complex, or apartment building, landscape and tree maintenance can be a large undertaking. Taking on a project this big can put you and your business at risk for increased liability due to harm or damage to personnel, property and belongings, not to mention personal injury, or worse. Consulting a tree service professional is the first thing you should do when considering trimming or pruning a tree.Skilled pruning and trimming of your trees promotes growth and health and helps ensure the lasting beauty of a tree?s appearance for many years to come. Occasionally, a tree will outgrow its location or begin looking scraggly and unkempt. Trees in this condition will benefit greatly from being pruned and trimmed, but careful attention must be paid to how much to trim and when to trim, or the tree could be irrevocably damaged.
