Tree trimming and pruning offer benefits for your trees‘ health, safety, and appearance. Here’s why these practices are essential, especially for trees like the mulberry, ailanthus, and maple:

Tree Health

  • Ensuring tree health: Trimming removes dead, dying, or diseased branches that could fall and cause harm. It also prevents the spread of disease within the tree, emphasizing the importance of maintaining your tree’s health.
  • Improved structure: Pruning helps shape young trees, guiding their growth and preventing structural problems that could weaken them in the future.
  • Enhanced sunlight and airflow: Opening up the canopy, trimming, and pruning allows better light penetration and air circulation, reducing stress on the tree and making it less prone to disease.


  • Storm resilience: Trees with weak or overgrown branches are more susceptible to damage in strong winds or storms. Regular maintenance strengthens them.
  • Property protection: Overhanging branches can risk homes, vehicles, or power lines. Trimming prevents accidents and potential damage.
  • Visibility: Pruning can maintain a clear sightline around driveways or walkways, improving safety for pedestrians and drivers.


  • Visual appeal: Trimming and pruning can give your tree a balanced and attractive shape, complementing your landscape design.
  • Fruit production (if applicable): Strategic pruning in fruit trees encourages healthy growth and improves the quality and quantity of your fruit yield.


While our goal is to preserve trees whenever possible, sometimes tree removal is the safest and most responsible option. Here’s why tree removal might be necessary:

  • Severe Damage: If a tree has sustained significant damage due to storms, pests, or disease, it may be beyond saving and pose a safety risk.
  • Structural Weakness: Trees with internal decay, large cavities, or significant root damage may be unstable and prone to falling.
  • Hazardous Location: Trees growing too close to homes, power lines, or walkways may need to be removed to prevent property damage or safety issues.
  • Space Restrictions: Sometimes, an otherwise healthy tree outgrows its space, competing overly with other trees or landscaping, and removal is the best action.

Why Choose Professional Tree Removal Services

  • Safety: Tree removal, especially for large trees, can be extremely dangerous. Professionals have the equipment, training, and experience to perform the job safely and efficiently.
  • Protection of Your Property: Professional tree services take careful precautions to minimize damage to your surrounding landscape and structures during removal.
  • Complete Service: A reputable tree service will handle the entire process, including felling the tree, removing all debris, and even stump grinding if desired.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that experts handle your tree removal guarantees that the job will be done right.


Stumps might not be as dangerous as their taller predecessors, but they can still be a pain and an eyesore for your property. We offer stump grinding and stump removal services that leave the ground looking like nothing was ever there.


If you need emergency tree service, you can call us day or night. We are open 24 hours, 365 days out of the year. Doesn’t matter how bad the weather.

We can respond on location quickly to assess the situation and devise a plan to save the tree or remove debris as needed.

Mr.Dennis is professional, courteous,we have a old pear tree that never been pruned since we were kids,dead heavy branches would drop after heavy wind,rain storm. I called Owned Bros on Tuesday,Mr.Dennis came out Wednesday morning to check the tree out,he gave a reasonable estimate and returned Monday morning (early) and his workers gave it a very nice pruning. It looks like a whole new tree! Photo one is after and photo two is before.

I hired Owens Tree Service to cut back my Mulberry tree. The work was high and heavy. After agreeing on the price which was fair to the task. I was asked specifically what I would like done. I explained, then they went to work. What can I say, fast, efficient and professional. The cleanup was complete, and I would recommend them without reserve. I would also like to add every person was courteous and friendly.

I needed a number of trees pruned and some assessed for safety reasons. Dennis came out the day after I called and it was clear he knew a lot about trees, wanted to preserve trees whenever possible but also wanted to make things safe around the house. His crew arrived the next day and worked quickly, but they never rushed. They treated everything with care and did a great job of cleaning up when they finished. All in all a very professional outfit and a job well done. I would definitely recommend.
