TreeSouth is a true full-service tree care company that operates primarily in Oconee, Pickens, and Anderson counties.
With proper care and maintenance, most trees can remain healthy and growing for decades to come. However, it is important to know when trees must be removed for safety or other reasons. TreeSouth personnel know what trees need to be healthy and how to remove them when they need to go.
Excellent tree pruning is equal parts science and art. Our goal when pruning is to create an attractive appearance without making it look like your tree or shrub has been pruned at all. As such, we are not only aware of how much living material we remove from the tree, but how and where we make the cuts. We apply that principle to pruning on the largest trees down to the smallest shrubs.
We will not perform bad pruning: If we are asked to perform work that is bad for the tree or needlessly un-attractive, we will first try to persuade the person to take a better approach. If they still insist on improper pruning, we will not take the job. Our pruning is performed in accordance with current national standards and work practices.
