Tree trimming is more detailed work than you would assume. Aimlessly cutting into the tree without knowing anything about it is not necessarily the best plan for the life of the tree. It is important to understand the growth process, the best time of year to prune it, the different types of trees and the overall health of the tree. The best bet is to call in an expert to get the job done. Farmington Hills, MI residents have been depending on PPM Tree Service for over a decade. The owner is a certified arborist, which sets him apart from his competitors. Being certified through the International Society of Aboriculture (ISA) means that the owner is educated in tree care.

It also indicates that he passed the test on aboriculture, from tree identification to soil conditions and fertilization. Having this expert knowledge, he can learn a lot about the age, growth pattern and health of a tree by examining the branches.
