Pruning is the removal or reduction of certain plant parts that are not required, that are no longer effective, or that are of no use to the plant. It is done to supply additional energy for the development of flowers, fruits, and limbs that remain on the plant. Pruning, which has several definitions, essentially involves removing plant parts to improve the health, landscape effect, or value of the plant.
Pruning Your Bushes With a Plan
Pruning can actually be done at any time of the year. Contrary to popular belief, pruning at the wrong time of the year does not kill plants, but continual improper pruning results in damaged or weakened plants. In general, the best time to prune most plants is during late fall or early spring before growth begins. There are exceptions to this rule, and they will be noted by your Maple Leaf Inc. representative.
At Maple Leaf Inc. we follow a definite plan. We consider the reasons or purposes before any cutting begins. By making the pruning cuts in a certain order, the total number of cuts is reduced greatly. Our skilled pruners’ first remove all dead, broken, diseased or problem limbs by cutting them at the point of origin or back to a strong lateral branch or shoot.
We Can Handle Those Pesky Stumps in Your Yard
Property owners, who have had a tree cut down, often find themselves with a left behind stump to deal with. Stumps left behind can be unsightly, take up valuable gardening space and be a trip hazard.
There are many ways to deal with a stump but the most efficient way is to have the stump ground out. We have trained professionals who can grind that ugly stump and underlying root system for you in minutes. We also have the right size stump grinders for any stump. Once we complete the removal of the stump, our staff will remove the grindings and haul them away from your site. If you request, you can also have the voided area filled with topsoil, seed and straw.
Trees and shrubs are essential to normal human life. They clean the air that we breathe; they produce oxygen, purify water, and provide homes to wildlife. They must be protected. Here at Maple Leaf Inc. we believe that the utmost care should be given to your trees and shrubs on your property. Your successful Plant Health Care (PHC) program will add value to your landscape, but also to your health and well being.
Maple Leaf Inc. uses a closed injection system which directly and safely infuses pest control, disease control, and nutritional products with reduced environmental exposure. This means fewer chemicals in the environment. Maple Leaf Inc. was one of the few companies in the state of Wisconsin that offers this service!
