Tree Pruning

Why we prune trees:

  • Pruning is often required for trees located in an urban landscape, there are a number of objectives we use when pruning trees.
  • Reduce the risk of failure – we do this by identifying if your tree has any co-dominate stems or limbs with bark inclusion. These trees/limbs are the first to fail in adverse weather or stressful conditions.
  • Provide adequate clearance to a structure (ie. your home, pool, shed, etc.) to prevent damage and unwanted mess.
  • Maintain tree health by regular crown cleaning, such as targeting dead, diseased, broken and rubbing/crossing branches

When should your trees be pruned:

  • Trees can be pruned at any time of year (depending on species), however, it is best practice to prune during months of dormancy.
  • Some hedges, bushes and shrubbery can and should be pruned annually to maintain the aesthetic you prefer.
  • Trees can be inspected on an annual basis to determine integrity and whether pruning is required.
  • When it comes to pruning, every tree is different and we are happy to provide free visual inspections, advice and estimates to decide what is best for you and your trees

Who should prune your trees:

  • Always have your trees pruned by a certified arborist!
  • A common mistake is homeowners pruning their own trees – Potentially causing permanent damage.
  • Improper pruning can harm the trees health, stability, and appearance, tree pruning can cause permanent damage to a healthy tree.

Plant Health Care

McDonald Tree Care is your holistic approach to tree care, through monitoring your tree and shrub health.

Root Collar Excavation
The practice of very cautiously removing the excess mulch and soil from above the root flare/stem of the tree to allow for proper aeration, disease and fungal prevention, and exposing potential girdling roots and what to do next.

By properly mulching the trees on your property, you can attempt to replicate your soil back to how trees grow in a natural forest environment. By focusing on aerating your urban soil through mulching/vertical mulching we can start to welcome back all the essential nutrients and soil microorganisms your trees crave.

Identification of Potential Tree Concerns
We are happy to assess your tree(s) to determine whether there is a problem (ie, pests, disease, etc.) and what we can do to help.

Mulching and fertilizing are also key in ensuring long term success with your existing trees, and trees you decide to in the future.

Our goal is to provide you with the most cost effective and environmentally conscious route to plant health care
We recognize that soil health is the most important component of tree and plant health.
