Do you need to find the best tree maintenance service in the Tri Cities? We are it. However, if you’re looking to tackle the job yourself, we are happy to help by providing whatever information we can.


Topping is the senseless practice of indiscriminately removing a majority of a tree’s branches. Topping violates the most commonly accepted methods of proper pruning. Many people think that topping will help their trees, but in reality, it is one of the worst things you can do to your tree! 

Topping does not make your tree safe. Topping actually creates a more dangerous tree because the branches that “sprout” after topping are weakly attached and as a result, they are more likely to break in a snow, ice, or windstorm. Topping also makes your tree prone to insect and disease damage because improper cuts invites decay. Topping actually starves your tree by removing leaves that help the tree grow. Topping is also expensive because it will not keep your tree small unless repeated every year, and because it will shorten the life span of your tree. By contrast, the positive effects of proper pruning will make your tree healthier and extend its life. Clearly, topping is not in YOUR or YOUR TREE’S best interest!

We will be happy to help and assist any way we can. If there is ever a job that gets to be a little too big, please give us a chance to earn your business.
