Crown cleaning-selective pruning to remove dead, diseased and/or broken branches.
Crown thinning-selective pruning to reduce the density of live branches.
Crown raising-selective pruning to provide vertical clearance.
Crown reduction-selective pruning to decrease height or spread.
Crown restoration-selective pruning to re-develop structure, form, and appearance of severely pruned, vandalized or damaged trees.
We use structural-selective pruning to improve tree and branch architecture for young and medium aged trees and for hazard reduction pruning-selective pruning for structure clearance and visible hazards.
Structure prune to engineer a sustainable trunk, branches and to influence orientation, spacing, growth rate and strength of attachments.
All of our trimming and pruning is done in accordance with American National Standards Institute A300 publication (ANSI A300) and ANSI Z133 Safety Standards.
Why trim or prune?
Tree trimming and pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure.
Tree trimming is desirable or necessary to remove dead branches, improving tree structure, enhances vigor and maintain safety.
By pruning to promote good structure in young trees. They will likely remain serviceable in the landscape for many years longer than trees that have not been structurally pruned. Waiting until trees grow larger makes structured pruning much more difficult and more expensive.
On mature trees, large branch removal is less desirable than it is on young trees, but sometimes necessary. Crown cleaning to remove dead, diseased, or broken branches is a recommended practice on mature trees.
