Ornamental trees, bushes, and shrubs are there to look good so we work hard to make sure they do just that. Being living things all plants grow and since they don't grow perfectly evenly they will require pruning to keep their shape and size just as you want it. Cutting plants to the perfect shape requires a lot of skill since it not only has to look good but be done in such a way that the plant thrives and isn't damaged by taking the shape you have in mind. Our dendrologists are the professionals in ornamental pruning and can advise you on just how much work, and when, you need done to transform your yard and be the envy of your neighbors.
Shaping and Decorating
When thinking of ornamental pruning most of us think of formal topiary effects with hedges trimmed into rigidly formal patterns but in fact ornamental pruning comes in many forms. We can give you the shapes you want (depending on the plants at hand) but we can also create more natural flowing shapes for your bushes, shrubbery, and even trees so see us more as exterior designers than simple pruners. If you're not sure what can be done with your plants then call us for a talk or send us some pictures of the yard and its foliage as it is and we'll suggest how we can improve on that to your tastes.
Pruning is often neglected and can result in plants that have become overgrown and even weak and unsafe but don't worry – help is at hand. If regular pruning has been skipped we will probably need to cut back pretty drastically in order to take control of the situation but with our skilled professionals on the job you can relax in the knowledge that your plants will grow back bigger, stronger, better than before and your yard will thrive. Call us to find out how restorative pruning can undo even years of neglect.
Reasons and Seasons
Regular pruning at the right time of year will help your plants perform at their best in both looks and health but that doesn't necessarily mean a single visit. Different plants need pruning at different times to get the most from the process so talk to us and we'll come and look at your yard and help fix a full annual schedule to get the most from your plants.
Pruning for Health
Pruning trees is an essential technique for producing strong growth with nice wide spread angles of bough and branch growth. Proper pruning is the secret to healthy trees with managed growth and and a key to productive fruiting. It is both an art and a science requiring extensive knowledge of the individual tree and shrub species and a keen eye and steady hand to ensure that pruning doesn't interfere with the very growth it is meant to be promoting. Don't leave it to luck, leave it to Tree sService Long island.
