All the Trimmings

The VMS Landscaping Services Department and Great Scott Tree Care, the contractor who trims large trees throughout Laguna Woods Village, collaborated with Village Television to bring to you an educational video about how the Village’s 39,000 trees are professionally and carefully trimmed.

The first half of the video, introduced by Landscaping Services Department Director Kurt Wiemann and led by Landscaping Services Department Manager Bob Merget, introduces the certified VMS tree crew and offers an in-depth look at how the team keeps the community’s trees healthy and looking good, all while focusing on safety. 

The second half of the video highlights Great Scott Tree Care and its Arbor Pro spider lift, which reaches a height of 95 feet but retracts to enter a gate just 36 inches wide, operated by one of Great Scott’s highly trained staff. It also highlights how Great Scott promotes safety, keeps the community’s turf and sidewalks damage free and works with the Landscaping Field Operations team and Resident Services to notify residents of upcoming work.
