The homeowner was concerned his Norway Maple was ready for the chopping block. The large codominant stem, moderate decay, and some unfortunate prior landscaping practices led to a serious split down the main trunk. Because it is the only tree in the yard with significant shade value, the homeowner called us to provide a plan for the long term health and preservation of the tree. With selective pruning, static cables, and bracing rods we were able to mitigate risk and preserve this awesome tree for the coming years. We love being able to SAVE trees when possible!
