To keep your trees at their healthiest, you must maintain them with trіmmіng, рrunіng, crown lіftіng, crown dесrеаѕе аnd crown thinning.

If you try to trim your own trees, you could do great damage to the tree- possibly killing it- and you can do great damage to yourself as well. If you do not have experience with a chainsaw, they can be fatal when used by inexperienced hands. Please be safe, rather than sorry.
