Maple Hill Farm projects in progress
LEFT: Here is a tree that has not been pruned in over 3 years. With proper pruning practices, I can open up the canopy of a tree to help with disease problems and make more asthetically pleasing to the eye. Part of what makes trees appealing is their branch habit and back. Note: The right half of the tree has been pruned. The half on the left has yet to be pruned.

RIGHT: While mother nature can have a profound effect on our lives, she can also show us much beauty and tranquility. We look forward to doing business with you.

Pruning by Maple Hill Farm Landscape
This Japanese maple has not been pruned for some time. Part of what makes a Japanese maple so appealing is their branch habit. With proper pruning, you can see the branch habit as well as enjoy the foliage.

LEFT: These cuts were made to try and let more light in (I can only assume). Proper pruning does not remove lower portions of the tree so drastically. Instead, thinning of the entire canopy to allow light to pass through is better. Proper tree selection is also important. A more upright growing variety of tree may have been more appropriate.

RIGHT: Improper pruning practices such as the topping of these large silver maples, only creates problems in the years to come. 1. Water sprouts with weak attachment points will break quite easily in bad weather conditions. 2. Large topping cuts invite decay and die back of main leaders, which in turn creates hazards that may not be seen for years down the road.
