Healthy Trees Result from Proper Pruning
There are various types of pruning that can be explored to suit the needs of your tree. We offer years of expertise and training to give you valuable pruning advice when it comes to the health and longevity of your tree.
Here’s What We Offer:
General Maintenance Prune
General maintenance pruning involves removing any dead branches, crossing/rubbing branches or branches with weak attachments, often a general maintenance prune will include some clearance pruning and thinning.
Sometimes tree branches will hang too low over sidewalks or roads resulting in damage from vehicles or vandalism. Canopies can also need to be raised to allow sight lines for traffic or to allow for lawn mowing. Crown elevation is best done when the tree is young to avoid leaving large wounds. Removal of or trimming up of low hanging branches can raise the canopy as needed.
In most circumstances it is acceptable to have branches growing over a roof or other structure, often these branches need to be trimmed in ensure that vertical roof clearance is maintained, it’s better for the roof and the tree if branches aren’t rubbing on shingles.
To avoid long term issues it is best to structurally prune young trees. This type of pruning encourages good long term structure by removing any crossing branches or branches growing too close to the ground. Structural pruning also involves, depending on the species, the subordination of secondary leaders to promote a strong central leader.
Having very dense tree canopies can sometimes lead to issues. During wet cooler temperature water can be trapped in dense canopies. This creates a nice environment for fungal pathogens. We can reduce the chances of a foliar fungal infection by reducing tree stress however increasing the airflow within the canopy can help reduce the chances of infection. Increasing the airflow can be achieved by canopy thinning. It is best not to be too aggressive with thinning as too much thinning can alter the wind load that is applied to the tree.
