Landscape Pruning Services

Hedge pruning or hedge trimming and shrub pruning are key to maintaining a beautiful property. It is best to employ an arborist. However, usually a landscape person performs these services due to cost. For larger hedges and shrubs, an arborist should be employed. Royal Wood Tree Service provides arborist hedge pruning (hedge trimming) and shrub pruning. Unless hedges or shrubs are pruned on a regular basis (minimum annually), they will become larger
