If your tree has been damaged in a storm, it's best to just get rid of the broken branches immediately, you don't want them falling off and making any more mess in your yard than is necessary.

So, you have your tree. The branches are growing like wildfire and some are intruding onto your roof or you are walking into them as you go up and down your driveway.

Your first task is to get rid of all damaged branches as they make a tree unhealthy. Secondly you want to thin out the areas that are thick with branches, and get rid of any branches that are growing towards the middle of the tree as they are just causing congestion within the tree system itself.

Next you want to trim the branches that are obstructions. If some are hitting the roof, trim them back, if they are overhanging the walkway, get them outta' there.
