Tree Trimming

As we enter into the season for trimming trees, please be careful with respect to hiring individuals/firms to perform this work. It would be advisable that you hire one individual/firm to perform the assessment of your trees and a different one to perform the trimming so as to avoid obvious conflicts of interest. As tree growth rates may be slow, the effects of poor/unnecessary trimming may take years to recover from, if ever. When in doubt, it is advisable that you hire a Certified Arborist (e.g. ISA - https://www.treesaregood.org/findanarborist).
