Have a backyard orchard? We offer fruit tree pruning in house (up to 15’). Pruning may be done in summer and winter, best to do some each season to have healthy, productive trees.
Roses often suffer from incorrect pruning and training. We are accomplished rose pruners and can have your rose garden thriving in no time!
