Mesquite tree pruning trimming

We had the opportunity to trim this very old Mesquite tree in Scottsdale Saturday. It was very full and had many branches that were over growing each other and one of the main leaders was up against the carport aw ning and bending the metal structure. We were going to remove this leader or branch but after further inspecting this branch was one half of the tree, so instead we reduced the weight so it would not impact the awning with as much force.

tree trimming or pruning of this wonderful tree will give it a very good chance of surviving the up and coming monsoon season.
