Since we are in the mood to talk about tree pruning the last couple of weeks this has also become a topic of concern, how to prune hard-to-reach branches and limbs. Whether it’s limbs hitting the side of your house, fruit trees branches too tall to reach any possible fruit, or your homeowner’s association says that your trees are getting a little out of hand, those hard to reach branches are a pain.

How to Safely Prune Hard to Reach Branches

There are a variety of ways you can reach these limbs either with an extension ladder, large pruning tools, and poles that extend up to 16 feet in length. This might be able to reach several of them but even then, some may be out of reach. Easy cuts that can be accessed with either a pull cutter, clippers, or assault on the end of an extended poll can easily be cut down but if there are limbs larger than 2 or 3 inches in diameter or simply out of reach, what are you supposed to do? This is where a professional tree trimming service needs to come in handy. The last thing you want is for something to go wrong and have you either fall out of the tree, cut yourself, or damage property nearby.

If you have limbs or branches that are touching the side of your house, this can cause pests and other diseases to seep in through the siding of your home. It’s important to keep branches and limbs off of the house and the roof if possible. If this isn’t something you’re ready to tackle yourself, give us a call. We’d be happy to give you an on-site estimate or over the phone estimate so that everyone stays safe and your tree gets the best care possible.
