1st. Call Lawn Care Expansion

We are in the process of expanding our shop. Trying to finish it before mowing season starts but may be no need to rush if we don't get some rain! A small tree job and no ladders required, hello pole saw!

You must have no idea about tree work as your cuts are in terrible locations.

I like that shop! I'd love to find a facility to work out of in the next year or two. Will the new area just be open on one end? I gotta agree though...that tree trimming doesn't look quite right.

The expansion is an open covered area for parking equipment. The tree is a Bois d'Arc /Horse Apple, There are trees all over the East Texas landscape that usually form old fence lines where settlers planted them. Bois D’arc trees have wicked thorns along the new growth and develop large gree apples that make a mess. We wanted to take the tree down but didn't have approval. I know it is advisable to retain the tree’s natural shape and optimum foliage to ensure healthy growth of branches however the facility manager only us to remove the main branches over the parking and walk area. The work order was specific as to what we would remove. Thanks for your reply.

Up here we call them Hedge trees. NOT a desirable tree to have in a yard by any means lol. Got any inside pics of the shop?
