Shrub Pruning

Barnes, Inc. provides high-quality shrub pruning as a service for both commercial and residential customers. This includes formal shape pruning (shearing), natural shape pruning (with hand pruners) and rejuvenation or renewal (thinning) pruning for those overgrown, problem shrubs at your place or business or at your home. Our horticulturists and trained crews use accepted horticultural techniques that promote healthy, vigorous growth that will enhance the beauty and value of your property.

Tree Trimming, Removal and Stump Grinding

Barnes, Inc. will perform aerial work by climbing and rigging, using the latest in technology, tools, training and safety instruction. No tree is too large or too small to be pruned or removed safely by our staff of highly trained climbers and ground staff.

Proper pruning of trees can promote their long-term healthy growth, as well as enhancing the beauty and value of any property.

When pruning, we will remove weak, dead and/or broken limbs, then remove additional limbs if necessary to aid in proper structural growth. We will also prune to provide clearance from any man-made structures that will be damaged by rubbing limbs and excess moisture. We will also recommend pruning if the likelihood of severe damage being caused by the freefall of a broken limb is extreme.

At Barnes, Inc., safety comes first. Takedown and removal of larger trees usually requires the use of ropes and lowering devices to ensure that all our crewmembers remain safe, and that no property or plantings are damaged from the free fall of large limbs to the ground. We will not use spikes for climbing on any limbs that will remain. This causes unnecessary damage that can create conditions that make trees more susceptible to diseases, pests and environmental stresses that can weaken and kill them.

We also will grind stumps to the ground 3 to 6 inches below grade. If in turf areas, sawdust is removed, then topsoil, seed, fertilizer and mulch are installed. If in beds, excess sawdust is removed or raked level.
