Tree Pruning in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN

Expertly pruned trees can enhance the value and beauty of your property while creating healthier, safer, longer-lasting trees. Homeowners have trusted S&S Tree and Horticultural Specialists' expert tree pruning services in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN for more than 35 years.

Adhering to High Standards
Proper tree pruning is a professional’s job. Not only can DIY tree pruning be dangerous, it can also damage or even kill your tree if it is not done properly. When you call S&S for tree pruning in the Twin Cities area, you’ll always receive expertly pruned trees.

We follow ANSI A300 Standards for proper tree pruning:

  • Clean: Selective pruning to remove one or more of the following parts: dead, diseased, and/or broken branches.
  • Thin: Selective pruning to reduce density of live branches.
  • Raise: Selective pruning to provide vertical clearance.
  • Reduce: Selective pruning to decrease height and/or spread.

Benefits of Proper Pruning
Tree pruning is performed to improve the health, beauty, long term stability, or safety of your tree(s). Proper pruning keeps all of these things in mind. Additionally, in an urban setting, we often must prune for building, utility, road or sidewalk clearance, or simply to increase light to another tree or to your lawn.

A good arborist will listen to what you would like to accomplish and make recommendations that comply with the highest standards in our industry. I.S.A. Certified Arborists, like those we employ, know how to use the tools and equipment needed to safely accomplish your goals. Proper tree pruning will bring notice to your trees and add beauty and value to your property.

Just a little thank you note for the wonderful planning for the work done in my yard by you, Kevin and your amazing crew. They were so very respectful of me and my home.

It’s my opinion that these guys are the best. Very professional. They don’t try and upsell you and give good advice. They always arrive on time, do a good job and clean up nicely.

I use S&S Tree every year for elm tree care. They do leaf minor control, soil injection and spray for Japanese beetles. I have an annual contract with them. I am satisfied with the service they provide me.

G. Naber, Roseville

They did a great job. They were very accommodating to our schedule and had no issues with anything like that. We had multiple meetings with the head guy to kind of find out what we were doing. He was really great to work with.

Brad, Chanhassen

I have worked with this company several times for various tree care services. The services are always exceptional. A neighbor and I both had our trees trimmed on the same day and they looked amazing afterward!
