Pruning methods we use.
Different trees call for different methods. Let’s kick off the convo with thinning. Thinning is accomplished by removing limbs back to their branch of origin allowing for more sunlight to penetrate. Next, we have cleaning - very simple cuts clear out dead, diseased and damaged limbs. We can also offer our clients reduction cuts and structural cuts. With reduction, we can reduce a tree’s height or width which might be necessary if branches are inching into your neighbor’s backyard. The structural method is a combination of one or more of the methods we have discussed and revolves around structural health.
Pruning young trees.
Our experts are committed to helping your young trees to branch out in the right direction. Young trees do need some growth guidance and that is exactly what our pruning services can do for you and your trees. Riding your young trees of rival branches is known as structural pruning and encourages a tree’s leader to grow. If you think about it, pruning your trees at a young age will also avoid structural problems later on. Taking a small step now, will enable us to help you prevent expensive structural corrections and ensure your tree’s canopy is in tip top shape.
