Professional Pruning

Specific types of pruning may be necessary to maintain a mature tree in a healthy, safe and attractive condition.

Crown Cleaning: is the removal of dead wood, dying, diseased, weakly attached and low vigor branches from the crown of a tree.

Thinning: is selective branch removal to improve structure and to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. Proper thinning opens the foliage of a tree, reduces weight on heavy limbs and helps retain the tree's natural shape.

Raising: removes the lower branches from a tree to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians and vistas.

Reduction: reduces the size of the tree, often for utility line clearance. Reducing a tree's height or spread is best accomplished by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to secondary branches that are large enough to assume  the terminal roles. Compared to topping, reduction helps maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree.

Crown Reduction & Thinning

Crown Reduction: The reduction in height and/or spread of the crown of a tree. Crown reduction may be used to reduce mechanical stress on the individual branches or the whole tree, make the tree more suited to its immediate environment or to reduce the effects of shading and light loss.

Crown Thinning: The removal of a small percentage of secondary and small live branches to produce a uniform density of foliage around an evenly spaced branch structure. Crown thinning include crown cleaning and does not alter the overall size or shape of the tree.
