"Pruning is one of the best things an arborist can do for a tree but one of the worst things we can do to a tree." -Alex Shigo. This is because proper pruning can improve the health, appearance, functionality, and safety of a tree, but improper pruning can have the opposite impact; harming the the health, appearance, structural stability, and safety of a tree. For these reasons it is essential for an arborist to have a thorough understanding of tree identification, tree physiology, species decay profiles, seasonality, pests and pathogens in order to properly care for and prune trees without causing irreparable damage. Our arborists have the technical expertise, knowledge, and experience to properly provide pruning services in a way that promotes the health, safety, and appearance of trees.
Stumps can be cumbersome and make it difficult to fully utilize the landscape. Our stump grinding services remove cumbersome stumps from the landscape and enable the re-planting of trees or turf.
Trees are complex organisms that periodically require a little extra assistance to thrive in the urban landscape. Plant health care issues can be biotic or abiotic and we work with our clients to properly diagnose plant health care issues and prescribe treatments based on best industry practices and scientific principles.
Our entomologist's graduate school research in Forest Entomology was focused specifically on insects associated with trees and how to identify, diagnose, detect, monitor, and control pest species. Most insects are benign or beneficial and only very rarely is significant intervention warranted. We are devoted to the continual pursuit of knowledge and science based approaches to managing insect pests in trees.
Tree planting is one of the most important aspects of tree care and maintenance. It sets the stage for all the subsequent years of the trees life. We can help you select the proper species, excellent growing stock, and plant the tree properly. Maintenance does not end after planting. Trees are a lifelong investment and we can create a post planting plan that incorporates essential elements for establishing the tree within the landscape and maintaining it for years to come by providing a structural pruning program.
It is our goal to preserve trees whenever possible, but trees need to be removed for a variety of reasons. At times, trees can pose a risk to people, property, and activities. When trees pose a risk people, property, and activities then significant intervention might be warranted in the form of tree removal. Large trees with significant structural defects not only pose a risk to the aforementioned things, but to workers and tree crews tasked with removing the tree. For this reason, it is essential to hire a tree company with the technical skills, experience, insurance, licensing, and credentials to perform complex and dangerous tree removals.

Ryan removed a large tree positioned close to the house using great care and accuracy . It’s obvious that climbing is a passion ! . He worked effectively with his ground crew to get the cutting and clean up completed in a timely manner. Will use this skilled professional for all our tree work !!
Lawrence Arborists did work for us earlier this year, thinning several large trees. They were very responsive and communicated well. Ryan is highly knowledgeable, and came up with a strategy which met our needs while maintaining the health of the trees. The work was done on time and the price was very fair. No doubt I will use them again. Highly recommended.
