TREE & SHRUB PRUNING - FRISCO, TX
Pruning trees & shrubs in Frisco, TX is a necessary maintenance task in order to preserve the health, beauty and value of your landscape plants. Most ornamental shrubs should be pruned 3 or 4 times annually and pruning can be done nearly anytime year-round in our area; however, spring and winter are the ideal times. The time of year trees & bushes are trimmed is less important than how they are trimmed and how often.
Every one of our Frisco, TX tree & shrub pruning team has been expertly trained in proper pruning techniques and best practices prior to working in the field. We always use sharp and clean professional-grade hedge trimmers, pruning shears, loppers and hand saws to ensure cleaner cuts that greatly reduce the risk of plant injury and disease as well as create a polished finish.

The goal of our Frisco, TX tree & shrub trimming service is to manicure plants in a way that both honors the plants natural growth habit while creating harmony with other plants in your landscaping. For example, utilizing the Boxwood shrubs upward compact growth habit by shearing geometric shapes or hedges acts as a back drop or focal point near the back of a bed or the Indian Hawthorn shrubs low mounding growth habit by shearing round wide shapes to create mass as a filler for the center of a bed.
