Not all trees will have long lives in the urban environment. Many trees are improperly planted, damaged during construction, or planted in inappropriate locations where they quickly interfere with buildings, infrastructure, or human activity, which can result in liability.

Trees often need to be trimmed away from structures, overhead lines, or areas of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Mature trees often have large dead branches in the canopy that should be removed to reduce risk. Hire Charles Tree Service to safely and properly trim or prune your trees.
