Q

What is the difference between stump removal and stump grinding services?

A

Both services require a team of trained professional technicians using industrial-grade machinery and the proper safety gear.

  • Large fungus growth on the tree.
  • Bare branches without leaves or other growth.
  • Smooth tree trunk without bark.
Q

What is the difference between tree trimming and pruning?

A

While both services are essentially the same, tree pruning is a regular service performed on smaller shrubs and hedges to remove unnecessary branches and tree trimming services on larger trees. Trimming ensures that shrubs and hedges grow the way you want them to. Pruning protects trees and shrubs by getting rid of dead, loose, or infected branches to give the shrub a better chance to grow. 

Q

When is the best time to have trimming and pruning services?

A

The best time of year to work on your trees is after the leaves have fallen, typically between late October to late November. However, branches and deadwood can be removed at any time throughout the year, especially if they cause potential hazards to the surrounding area.
