Warner Tree Service is your local expert in all of the differences in the requirements and will advise you at the time of the estimate. In most cases, we will obtain the permit on your behalf In the rare instances that we cannot order the permit on your behalf, Warner Tree Service will provide you with the necessary contact information.

Why is it important to have trees professionally trimmed?

A poorly pruned tree is WORSE than a tree that’s never been pruned at all. Most “tree services” don’t understand proper pruning and they over-prune and leave bad cuts. Trees that are not trimmed properly can be at risk for insect infestation and disease. Our highly-skilled technicians will trim your trees in a way that promotes health and beauty while protecting you from the risks of attempting to trim trees yourself. There are other good companies out there, but unfortunately, the bad ones far outweigh the good ones. Always hire fully insured companies that are owned and operated by ISA Certified Arborists.

Is tree examination important?

Proper examination and plan of execution are critical, in fact, it may be the most important part of the process.
