Recent Problems We've Solved

PINE TREE PRUNING

These pines were full of dead limbs and twigs. Removing deadwood made the trees healthier, more attractive and more valuable in the landscape.

Before and After

ROOF CLEARANCE

The limbs of this oak tree were too low over the house. This situation keeps the roof and siding too moist and is also an invitation to squirrels. Our pruning gave the house adequate roof clearance while also not compromising the health of the tree.

 

SHORE VIEW CLEARING

Our understanding of shoreland zoning rules allows us to open a water view while still keeping enough vegetation to comply with local and state regulations. Views can be dramatically improved with a combination of pruning and selective tree removal.

Street-side Tree Removal

This dying tree was a hazard; it was 10 feet from a home and 10 feet from the road. We successfully removed it from a tight spot so that neither house nor cars were in danger any longer.

 

Willow Limbs Overhanging A House

This large willow tree was dropping limbs on our client's property after winter storms. It was also casting too much shade. After careful removal, the roof was safe from damage and the yard regained light.

Removal of Two Large Pines

These two white pines towered over this home in Topsham, Maine. In a forest setting they would have been harmless, but here they posed the risk of dropping limbs on the roof after heavy snowfalls or blowing over in high winds. After removal, our client's home is much more secure.

 

Crowns Cleaned and View Cleared

This Freeport, Maine home had a spectacular view that was blocked by limbs and leaves. We removed dead wood and certain live limbs, being careful to remove only as much as the trees could tolerate. Their view is now open and full of light, and the trees are healthier.
