If you have trees, you probably need to get the pruned from time to time, so dead branches don’t come off in the wind, or if they are approaching buildings and could cause damage. Sometimes, branches need to be removed because of disease or damage. With the taller trees, the tops might be crowding out the newer growth below, or the tree is just getting too tall. You might need pruning for shaping and designing the look of the tree.
Stump grinding is a way to remove an old stump from your property, after the tree has been cut down. If it’s a small stump, you can rent a stump grinder and do it yourself, but it’s always a safer option to hire a professional, with the right training and insurance to come do it for you. If you have several stumps or really large ones, it’s really best to have the large equipment with a professional operator.

If you haven’t as of yet purchased a Christmas tree I would highly recommend the Douglas Fir, this tree will retain it’s needles much longer than the tradtional Pine or Spruce tree!
A good idea always before you place the tree in it’s stand that you give it a fresh cut; saw off about 2 inches. In doing so this allows the tree to take up water easily and inturn will help the tree retain it’s needles. Regular watering is also a sure way to keep your Christmas tree beautiful!
