We're equipped to prune

Your tree’s good health and appearance are our main concerns. At Blackhawk, we understand what it takes to prune trees of all species and all sizes. We know that different types of trees need different types of care. A one-size-fits-all solution won’t cut it with us. That’s why we maintain an extensive inventory of tree climbing, pruning, and cutting equipment—so we always have the right tool for the job. To protect your tree’s health, we don’t use harmful shoe spikes while climbing and pruning. We think taking care of trees means understanding that using shoe spikes today may cause other problems in the future.

 

Keep Your Trees Looking Great

It can take a lot of hard work to make your trees look their best. When it comes to quality tree pruning, you have to be able to climb tall trees and work efficiently at heights of 80 to 100 feet. You also need an artistic eye and a love for keeping trees looking their best. The Blackhawk team is filled with experienced, ISA-certified tree specialists who know how to climb and prune safely, understand how to make any tree look great, and do it all in a way that has minimal impact on your yard. That means less time cleaning up leftover tree debris and more time you can spend enjoying the view of your newly-trimmed trees.

Pruning is key for tree health & safety

Pruning your trees provides several benefits. It’s not just about keeping dead limbs from falling onto your car, home, or other important parts of your property. Pruning is also important for the health and safety of your trees themselves! Blackhawk uses thinning techniques to enhance airflow within your trees and improve their health. These same thinning techniques will also help sustain the manicured look of your tree for longer. We also trim dead branches and selectively remove live ones to minimize deadfall, reduce stress on your trees, and even allow more sunlight to reach the ground. No matter what your tree pruning needs, our expert team is perfect for the job.

A well-pruned tree can add an element of style to your property and give onlookers a positive impression. It also improves the health of your trees while cutting down on the risk dead or dying branches pose. By carefully eliminating bad growths early on and helping promote good growth to develop, you will end up with more beautiful, stronger trees in the long run.

While you might love the sight of a well-maintained tree, a dead tree usually evokes a different emotion. Dead trees are no joke. Often weighing hundred of pounds, a falling tree can pose a serious threat to roofs, automobiles, and any other property it lands on. Falling branches can be just as dangerous, posing similar harm to both parked and moving cars.
