Tree Care and Trimming Tips

Tree Trimming / Crown Cleaning
Carefully remove dead, dying, diseased, crowded, or weakly attached branches and water sprouts (sucker growth) from inner two-thirds of the crown to promote superior tree health.

Crown Reduction
Also known as crown shaping, this reduces the height and/or spread of outer third of the crown to lessen the weight and minimize breakage on weakly crotched or stemmed trees.

Crown Thinning
The removal of inner branches, increase light penetration and air movement through the crown to promote tree health and prevent weakly crotched or stemmed trees from being damaged.

Crown Raising
Also known as crown elevation, this removes the lower branches of a tree to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, etc.

Crown Restoration
This pruningĀ  improves the structure of trees whose branches have been severely headed, vandalized, or storm damaged.

Utility Pruning
To ensure safe and continuous utility service, use a combination of the above tree trimming and maintenance services to keep trees from interfering with power and telephone lines.

Cabling and Bracing
Weakened or stressed branches may need temporary or permanent physical support, which can be provided by connecting them to healthy, strong branches or to a nearby structure.
