Proper pruning is essential in establishing and maintaining a tree with a strong structure and a desirable form. Trees that receive the appropriate attention while they are young will require less corrective pruning as they mature. Pruning must be donewith an understanding of how the tree responds to each wound.

Improper pruning can cause irreparable damage that will last for the life of the tree, or worse, shorthen the tree’s life. Our trained Arborists are knowledgeable in both the art and science of pruning, and will work to meet your needs and maintain your trees health.

Crown Cleaning

The removal of dead,dying,diseased, crowded,weakly attached, and low -vigor branches from the crown of the tree.

Crown Lifting

The removal of select lower branches to a predetermined height in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, and vistas.

Crown Thinning

The selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. Thinning opens the foliage of a tree, reduces weight on heavy limbs, and helps retain the tree’s natural shape.

Crown Thinning

Reduces the size of a tree, reducing the height or spread of a tree is best accomplished by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to lateral branches that are large enough to assume the terminal roles(at least one-third the diameter of the open wound).compared to topping, reduction helps maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree.
