Video titled “Glory Laurel” but we are actually pruning a laurel oak tree in north Florida. This day doing tree work was glorious and the tree, elder in age, with an overextended limb over the roof. Older trees overextending over your roof is not good. We pruned this tree in an effort to minimize length and weight from this one limb by making a large reduction cut. The client has been educated that the tree is nearing end of “safe” life span and due to the species, which is known to be short lived and prone to decay, will need to be removed in a few years.
