Tree Pruning in the Bronx

There are times when tree removal becomes necessary. Dead or diseased trees can pose serious safety hazards, with branches or entire trees at risk of falling. Trees suffering from severe infestations or incurable diseases may need to be removed to prevent the spread to healthy trees. Sometimes, trees may outgrow their space, causing structural damage, blocking sunlight, or becoming an eyesore. Additionally, construction projects or landscaping renovations often necessitate tree removal.

Owens Brothers Tree Service has been helping Bronx residents navigate these decisions for decades. Our certified arborists offer comprehensive tree assessments and prioritize safe, efficient tree removal when necessary. At Owens, we understand the importance of trees to your property and will always work to find the best solution for your landscape and your safety.

I had Owens Tree Service trim and prune my large Japanese maple tree in the Bronx. They were fast, efficient, and handled the complex job expertly, even with the tree wrapped around multiple electrical lines. Their teamwork and the necessary insurance coverage made me feel confident in their ability to complete the job safely. Highly recommend their services!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are no state requirements concerning the removal of trees planted on private property in The Bronx. There ARE rules and regulations that need to be followed if you need to have a tree removed from public property or a Bronx park.

New York is a large state, but there are really only 10 primary tree species that are planted in the city, simply because these are the trees that tend to survive the best in various seasons. These hardy trees include:

  • Pine Oak (Quercus Palustris)
  • Red Maple (Acer Rubrum)
  • Norway Maple (Acer Platanoides)
  • Littleleaf Linden (Tilia Cordata)
  • Sugar Maple (Acer Saccharum)

The Bronx has some cold winters! If you like to grow fruit, Bronx homeowners recommend these hardy fruit producers:

  • Juneberry
  • Peach
  • Pear
  • Mulberry
  • Blackberry

There are a few trees that the state of New York recommends against planting. Not only are these trees traditionally harder to maintain than some of the common varieties of trees found in The Bronx, they are also highly susceptible to the Asian Long-horn Beetle, which New York has seen major infestations of in previous years. These trees include:

  • Hackberry (Celtis Occidentalis)
  • Green Ash (Fraxinus Pennsylvanica)
  • White Ash (Fraxinus Americana)
  • American Elm (Ulmus Americana)
  • London Plane (Platanus Acerifolia)

The Bronx is home to a variety of trees; but that means it is also the home of a range of tree diseases and pests. Some of the most common tree diseases and pests in The Bronx include:

Canker Disease – Comes in three forms and resembles a blister on the tree’s bark.
Heart Rot Disease – Can deciduous trees that are not pruned properly or that have damaged branches. Like Canker Disease, Heart Rot is caused by fungus.
Powdery Mildew Disease – This white or gray powdery growth looks like talcum powder and may appear on leaves. Powdery mildew is more common in warmer climates.
Root and Butt Rot – There are three forms of this disease, which impacts hardwood trees at the root to weaken them and cause decay and stress to the tree.
Sooty Mold Disease – This mold attacks many species of trees that grow in areas where a feeding insect population is high.

Some of the most frequently cited pests for tree troubles include:

  • Asian Longhorned Beetle
  • Emerald Ash Borer
  • Gypsy Moth
  • Spotted Lanternfly
  • Tent Caterpillars

Our tree service company works year round! Depending on what service you might be in need of, you may want to schedule a visit from our Bronx tree company in Spring/Summer or late Fall. For tree pruning and cutting, Spring and Summer is the best time to evaluate the health of the tree and start thinning. On the other hand, it is easier to remove a tree in the late Fall or Winter months, as this is when the tree is dormant, making root removal easier.

Keeping up with your trees is much cheaper than having them removed. Investing in annual tree trimming and pruning from a professional tree service company can cost between $390 and $590 on average in The Bronx, and more in Manhattan, but pricing may depend on the type and size of the tree in question, or the available space for trimming.

First, a skilled technician from Owens Bros Tree Service will come to your home and evaluate the tree or trees that you would like maintained or removed. For tree trimming and pruning services, our technicians will quickly cut and remove dead or overhanging branches. For full tree removal, our team will seamlessly create a plan of action for removing even the largest trees, right down to the stump!

As long as you are able to provide our contractors access to the property, you will not need to be there. That means you can plan our tree services around your schedule.

You need a residential tree service that imbues quality, reliability, and experience. Our tree service company has been serving Bronx residents when it comes to tree cutting and removal for over 60 years. We are a well known name when it comes to Bronx tree companies and we are proud to have a dedicated and insured team of contractors ready to take on any tree trimming challenge, no matter how big or how tight a space!

Always choose a tree company that is licensed and insured in order to protect your property and your trees.

There are many reasons that you need to prune your trees regularly. Not only is it good for the health and aesthetics of the tree, it can be key to your safety and the safety of others on your property. And if your tree gets too big, it can start to hang over other property, even powerlines, becoming a further danger. However, improper pruning can hurt your trees more than helping them, causing them health problems and potentially leading to disease or death.
Hazard tree assessment is one of the things that we do best at Owens Bros Tree Service. Call our tree company today and we’ll help you determine whether or not your trees pose a danger and what your options for pruning and removal may be.
Yes! After your tree removal, you have the option to keep the cut and split wood from your dead tree for use on your property as firewood.
