Tree pruning
Whether you have a small or large pile of debris, our crewmembers will make quick work of cleaning it up.

Tree pruning is a necessary task for maintaining the health and beauty of your trees. It can also help to prevent damage to your property and keep your trees safe from storms and other hazards.

The best time to prune trees in Charleston SC is late winter, from mid-February through early March. This is when the trees are dormant and the sap is not flowing. Pruning at this time will help to reduce the risk of infection and promote new growth.

When pruning trees, it is important to use sharp, clean tools and to make cuts that are as close to the branch collar as possible. The branch collar is the swollen area where the branch meets the trunk. Cutting too close to the trunk can damage the tree.

There are many different reasons to prune trees. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • To remove dead, diseased, or damaged branches.
  • To shape or thin the tree.
  • To improve the health of the tree.
  • To promote new growth.
  • To prevent damage to property.
  • To make the tree safer from storms and other hazards.

If you are not comfortable pruning your trees yourself, it is best to hire a professional arborist. A qualified arborist will have the experience and knowledge necessary to prune your trees safely and effectively.

Task was to cut down and remove huge six foot diameter live oak that had split to the roots and half the tree had hit the ground. Randy and his crew finished most of the job on the first day and cleaned up the remainder the next day. Unbelievably professional and competent crew with top-notch equipment. I recommend his service without qualification.

The Rawson crew is professional, quick and clean. We had them remove four large diseased oaks that were threatening structures on our property. They arrived on time and got right to work on the intricate project.
