TREE TRIMMING AND PRUNING
Our team is very knowledgeable in all areas of trimming and pruning. Whether we are removing the deadwood out a large Maple or thinning a smaller ornamental tree, we have the knowledge and skills to complete the job. We have experience in following the industry’s ANSI A300 standard.
- Structural pruning is the removal of live branches and stems to influence the orientation, spacing, growth rate, strength of attachment, and ultimate size of branches and stems.
- Crown cleaning is the selective removal of dead, diseased, detached, and broken branches. This type of pruning minimizes the spread of decay, insects, and diseases from affected tissue to the healthy portions of the tree. It also reduces the potential damage of falling deadwood.
- Crown thinning is the selective removal of small, live branches to reduce crown density. Proper thinning is done near the ends of the limbs and requires the ability of a skilled tree worker to make important decisions on what should stay and what should go. Thinning can help to reduce the risk of storm damage and disease.
- Crown reduction is the selective removal of branches and stems to reduce the height or spread of a tree or shrub. Proper reductions take time and a keen eye for the overall shape of a tree or shrub. We do not “top” trees. Instead, we make cuts at the proper junctions.
- Elevation is the selective removal of branches to provide vertical clearance.
