Our Services

Annual Pruning encompasses a combination of thinning, heading back and removal of dead and diseased wood. Consistent pruning reinvigorates tired wood, and maintains your tree’s size and shape. It enhances the penetration of light and air leading to better tasting fruit (higher sugars and aromatics). Pruning also stimulates the formation of flowering buds and fruiting spurs and is a primary method for removing disease before it becomes widespread.

Restoration Pruning is a multi-year approach to rejuvenating trees that are older, overgrown, damaged, or significantly neglected. Fruit trees have long lives and most elder trees have experienced periods of neglect or inconsistent care. LifeCycles specializes in multi-year fruit tree restoration processes that aim to reinvigorate your tree, extend its life and get it to a place where it can be easily maintained with some basic annual maintenance.

Learn Along Pruning. Want a more direct approach? Try our Learn-Along Service. Spend 1.5 hours in your own backyard with one of our tree care experts. If there are topics you want to learn about, let us know and we can design something to fit your needs. Our goal is to set you up to take good care of your tree for years to come.

Pest Management. We offer organic pest sprays to help reduce damage from common pests in our region.

Consultation. If you are planning to plant some new trees or looking for ways to make your existing trees healthier, we also offer on-site consultations. Our consultation may touch on site selection and preparation, species and varietal selections, training systems, pollinator ecology, healthy soil, pest and disease management, irrigation, guild planting and more.
