Arborist Inspection

When you schedule an inspection for tree trimming and pruning from Franklin Tree Service, we always send a certified arborist.  The arborist will examine your trees current health status and when needed, recommend a plan of action to save or increase the health of your trees.  Tree trimming or pruning is a common prescription for trees that have been neglected for years.  In some cases tree removal is the best solution and removing a dead or dying tree may save the surrounding trees from the same fate.

Pruning

Tree pruning is an effective way to obtain the desired shape and strengthen the structural integrity of your trees. Pruning involves cutting and removing specific branches that are dead or damaged.  Diseased branches can spread unwanted organisms throughout the tree and effect other trees and plants on your property. Branches that have become damaged from insects, decay or disease need to be properly removed for the tree to maintain good health.
