a. Trimming and Shaping: Southeast tree care’s primary objective was to trim and shape the conifer hedges to enhance their aesthetic appeal. The goal was to maintain a balance between a neatly manicured appearance and the health of the hedges, promoting dense and vibrant growth.

b. Assessment of the Current State: An assessment was conducted for the current state of the conifer hedges. This involved a detailed examination of their height, width, and overall condition, identifying any areas of concern or potential issues.

c. Defining Desired Height and Shape: Based on the assessment, the team collaborated with the customer to define the desired height and shape of the conifer hedges, to ensure that the trimming and pruning would align with the customer’s preferences while maintaining the overall health of the plants.

d. Project Timeline: Southeast tree care provided the customer with a detailed project timeline outlining each phase of the hedge trimming and shaping process. The timeline included the assessment, planning, execution of the pruning, and a post-trim inspection to ensure customer satisfaction.

e. Monitoring Hedge Response to Pruning: Throughout the pruning process, the team closely monitored the hedges' response to the trimming. Special attention was given to areas beyond the no-growth zone to encourage healthy regrowth. This involved the plants, checking for signs of stress, and adjusting the pruning techniques as needed.

The result of the conifer hedge trimming and shaping met the customer’s expectations. The hedges displayed a well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing appearance, maintaining their health and density. The post-trim inspection confirmed that the hedge responded positively to the pruning, showcasing healthy growth beyond the no-growth zone.
