Trees add incredible value to a property, in many ways. Look at tree services as investments, not expenses. “Low price is a poor gauge of a quality arborist. Often, the better ones are more expensive because of more specialized equipment, more professional help, and insurance costs.” – Florida Chapter International Society of Arboriculture.
Tree and Palm Trimming
Pruning is the selective removal of portions of a plant (buds, roots or branches). Pruning involves removal of diseased, damaged, or dead portions from landscape plants. When pruning is performed incorrectly, it can harm a tree’s stability, health, aesthetics and cause continuing harm. Improper pruning can also be expensive, leading to disease, decay, weak branch structure and potentially tree removal. Greenstar Tree Service is fully equipped with the tools and knowledge to prune your trees properly, ensuring you can enjoy them for years to come.
The main reasons for pruning trees include safety, health and aesthetics. Pruning for safety involves removing branches that could fall and cause injury or property damage, trimming branches that interfere with lines of sight on streets or driveways and removing branches that grow into utility lines.
Pruning for health involves removing diseased or insect-infested wood, removing crossing/rubbing branches and thinning the crown to increase airflow and allow for more durability in high wind.
Pruning for aesthetics involves enhancing the natural form of trees by controlling and directing growth in order to improve and maintain ornamental value and/or stimulating flower and fruit production.

Removing yellow and dead fronds helps to maintain property cleanliness and upkeep.

Greenstar Tree Service knows that all South Floridians are concerned with hurricane season, and, of the many things we need to be cognizant of during this season, is if the trees on our property are prepared for a hurricane. Statistically, Miami should see hurricane winds and weather before the end of the 2014 hurricane season. Since there has not been significant hurricanes in the area over the last few years, much of the dangerous tree debris rocked loose during a storm has not been removed and is still looming above our heads and homes. During a hurricane or tropical depression, trees that are structurally weak, stressed, diseased and/or damaged can cause serious damage to property, utility lines, etc. by snapping, falling and uprooting. An essential component to diminishing your risk of property damage is storm preparedness.
While a hurricane-resistant tree does not exist, with appropriate care and scheduled maintenance, administered by a local arborist, trees can be more resistant to damage from a storm. Peter Masi, owner of Greenstar Tree Service, is a Florida arborist and is well versed in the proper care and optimal growth conditions for South Florida trees. A deep rooted tree may not uproot during a storm, but structurally compromised limbs may break or fall and damage property or become deadly projectiles. Preventive steps, like pruning, can be taken to attempt to reduce or eliminate these damages. Pruning is imperative to hurricane damage prevention.
Make certain to schedule an appointment with Greenstar Tree Service a few months in advance to ensure your tree will be strong enough by hurricane season. Improper pruning can prove dangerous during a storm, the incorrectly cut branches are extremely vulnerable to high winds.
