How can you save money and decrease chance of storm damage?
Preventative tree pruning
Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re no strangers to high winds and the damage they can cause. You can minimize the risk of storm damage to your trees by having them pruned. Often called preventative tree pruning or structural pruning, it decreases the chance of a tree falling or large branches breaking in wind storms.
How? Pruning removes dead and decayed branches which are not as strong and could break easier. Trees often act as wind traps and that’s when they can fall during a storm. With a method called tree thinning (or crown cleaning), branches are removed in the crown of the tree to lessen wind resistance so wind will pass through the branches.
Pruning now can save money later as you’ll lessen the chance of a tree falling and damaging your building or vehicle. Plus, your trees will live longer and look better so contact General Tree for your free pruning estimate.

What does tree and shrub maintenance include?
- Ornamental and structural pruning
- Insect and disease control
- Plant health care programs
Why is it necessary?
Like any living thing, a healthy tree, shrub or plant is stronger and will be more resistant to infestations and diseases. The primary purpose of our maintenance plans is to give trees, shrubs and plants everything they need to be healthy so they will not succumb to disease and insects.
Preventative maintenance is always more cost effective as it’s more expensive to treat for diseases and insects as opposed to preventing them. Plus, depending on how advanced the disease, treatment may not work or the tree or shrub won’t make a complete recovery.
You know the saying-an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
