Dear Dean,

I really appreciate you and your crew for being so professional, friendly and thorough in removing my old dead pine.  It's quite a relief to have that danger out of my backyard.  If you ever need a referral, you can count on me!  I hope the new year is prosperous and safe for you and your guys!

Thanks again "Soooo" much!

Dear Dean,

I want to let you know how pleased I am with Giraffe Tree Service and the professionalism of your crew. The cost effectiveness of your services was an added bonus!

Your foreman did an incredible job leading the men by example and providing excellent service. It was amazed to see how clean the site was when the job was finished. I also couldn't see how you would be able to remove the two dead trees without damaging the surrounding landscaping or leaving behind a mess. Not one plant was damaged and our landscaping looks exactly like it did before Giraffe Tree Service came in with the exception of the trees being gone...

I have to say that when the responsibility fell on me to see this project through I was concerned about the outcome. Thank you - the work ethic of your crew was an excellent reflection on my choice.

Warmest Regards,
Lynn Smallwood

Trimming & Pruning


Climb 5 stories staight up while carrying a 15 pound chainsaw. Suspend yourself to a rotted limb with a thin rope. Engage in vigorous, bone-rattling “exercise” while trying not to shred the one thing that keeps you from plummeting to the ground without a net. Repeat.

Better yet, stick to the treadmill and let Giraffe Tree Service do the climbing!

Benefits of proper pruning and trimming

As trees grow, they need direction. This may be in the form of pruning, thinning or shaping to remove dead wood. Pruning enhances the appearance and value of landscaping, but it’s importance goes way beyond looks.

Pruning can also help your tree by reducing damage from a storm, providing clearance from your home and can be used to train young trees early so possible structure problems can be avoided in the future.

Sometimes a tree has branch problems beyond what pruning can improve. A severe split in a tree’s large branch can cause the loss of that branch, which could affect the long term health of the tree. In these cases, our arborists assess the need for a cable or brace to support the structure of your tree, so that your tree remains structurally intact.

Please don't top trees!

Prune instead:
Topping is perhaps the most harmful arborcultural practice known.  Despite more than twenty-five years of articles and seminars explaining its harmful effects, topping remains a common practice throughout the country. Please be aware that topping:

  • Greatly shortens the life of your trees. The large wounds allow disease and decay organisms an easy route of attack.
  • It's makes trees ugly and that can reduce your property value.
  • Over time, it's cheaper to prune and shape your trees than to top them!


An arborist can determine the type of pruning necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of trees.

These techniques include:

  • Eliminating branches that rub each other
  • Removing limbs that interfere with wires, building facades, gutters, roofs, chimneys, or windows, or that obstruct streets or sidewalks
  • Removing dead or weak limbs that pose a hazard or may lead to decay
  • Removing diseased or insect-infested limbs
  • Creating better structure to lessen wind resistance and reduce the potential for storm damage
  • Training young trees
  • Removing limbs damaged by adverse weather conditions
  • Removing branches, or thinning, to increase light penetration
  • Improving the shape or silhouette of the tree
