  • Tips for Pruning Trees

    Trees have many environmental benefits.
    1. They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen.
    2. Provide habitat for birds and other wildlife.
    3. Help to reduce ozone levels in urban areas.
    4. Reduce urban runoff and erosion by storing water and breaking the force of rain as it falls.
    5. Absorb sound and reduce noise pollution.
    6. Provide shade to lower heat buildup, especially on ashpalt surrounds.

    These benefits are maximized once a tree is mature, which takes a number of years.
