Your property and your home is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime. For this reason and many more we know how important the maintenance and care of your trees truly are.

Proper pruning can eliminate many hazardous situations and also promote healthy growth in the life of a tree. Many species require only minimal pruning over the course of their lifetime while others require specific and careful manicuring to be full and healthy. A professional tree care service such as the specialists at Singleton & Landscaping & Tree will be able to assess and correctly prune your trees to keep them happy and your areas safe.
Your trees attract thousands of insect species and disease organisms, the majority of which are no cause for concern.

At Singleton Landscaping & Tree, we work efficiently and cost effectively to remove dead trees in the community of Chicago and leave your yard to continue to flourish for years to come.
Shrub trimming or pruning is extremely important for the shrubs found at your property. When maintained and pruned regularly, shrubs can display their proper character, size and shape. Shrub trimming also allows for the shrub to reach its optimal flowering and health potential. Please know that our experienced pruning crews at Singleton Landscaping and Tree will make each cut with the plant’s health in mind.
When trimming or pruning shrubs, there are several types of pruning practices worth examining:
One of the most common approaches to maintain beautiful and healthy shrubs involves the trimming and removal of approximately one-fourth of the matures stems near the shrub’s base. By thinning the base, we allow the shrub to keep its shape and character while allowing additional sunlight to reach the base area. Like all other plants, most shrubs require sunlight to produce healthy foliage and growth.
Shrubs in your landscape have a natural size and shape that can be preserved through selective trimming and pruning. Precise cuts can be made near the branch collars which utilizes their inherit protective tissues. Selective trimming can also be used to achieve certain aesthetics or to remove any dead, dying or diseased branches.
Unfortunately, shearing has become more common especially in the commercial landscaping industry. Instead of removing the oldest branches, those dying of disease and decay, or a possibly a crowded area near the base of the shrub, shearing controls height surrounding the shrub but also causes the death of healthy limbs and shoots.
In conclusion, using the correct shrub trimming and pruning techniques will improve the overall health, vigor and appearance of your shrubs. We have several Certified Arborist’s on staff who are happy to speak with you regarding any questions that you many have regarding shrub pruning.
