Trimming a tree is not a job for the faint of heart. To reach the tallest branches, you either need to be up on a ladder or suspended from a harness. Then, there's the equipment — chainsaws, axes, and handsaws can all be really dangerous, especially if you don't know what you're doing. These are the primary reasons why most homeowners leave tree service to the professionals. Yet, even if the pros do the work, you probably want to know a little about tree care. You can learn the basics right here on this website, where we've collected all sorts of articles on tree care, tree services, and the like.
