Tree Pruning at a Former President's Home

Tree Pruning at a Former President's Home

Davey's Dallas tree services crew addresses tree maintenance at Bill Clinton's childhood home.

Hope, Arkansas, is a rural, 10-square-mile town. But this small town has quite a large claim to fame: it is the birthplace of the 42nd U.S. president, Bill Clinton.

Davey’s Dallas tree services recently visited Clinton’s childhood home, but their intention was more than to tour the visitor’s center. The crew performed tree services on a 100-year-old pecan tree in between the home and visitor’s center. The tree maintenance they performed on site included cabling, hazard pruning and deep-root fertilization.

District Manager Brian Cox describes the home as “a neat little place that takes care of its grounds.” The home sits on a small piece of land with railroad tracks right beside it.

“This was as nice visitor center and museum,” Cox says. “It was definitely an interesting place.”

  • Just a Trim, Please

    Put a pair of scissors in your hands, and whether you're cutting coupons or bangs, there's always the potential to oversnip. It's almost too easy to make a mistake as you clip, clip, clip away - removing a little more on this side and a bit more on that side.

    Just like with a bad haircut, there is nothing more noticeable than a poorly pruned plant - pieces sticking out in all directions, a butchered shrub, a tree that looks like the top has been sliced off. The good news is that just as the perfect haircut can frame the face and improve a person's appearance, the same can be said for a professional tree pruning job.

    Pruning is not only a science, but an art form. The science aspect of pruning involves understanding tree biology, recognizing plant flaws and skillfully eliminating or minimizing defects. The artistic aspect of pruning consists of removing dead wood while aesthetically shaping the tree.
