Trimming & Pruning
Landscape trees require a level of care to maintain the structural integrity and aesthetics. Pruning can be used to address the follow issues: removal of dead branches, to improve form and reduce risk, to increase light and air penetration to the inside of the crown or landscape below and sometimes as corrective or preventative measures.
Pruning can encourage trees to develop a strong structure and reduce the likelihood of damage during severe weather. Pruning is broken into four main categories:
*Topping is not a form of crown reduction and is never recommended for any reason.
Cabling & Bracing
Is a physical support for weak branches and stems to increase strength and stability, however such supports are not guarantees against failure. After installation maintenance of these devices must occur on a regular basis to help ensure the health and wellbeing of both the tree and the equipment.
Some trees with an unacceptable level of risk must be removed. This is achieved by systematically removing limbs from trunk in a safe and orderly fashion.
After a removal the stump is ground down several inches below ground level with debris removed once desired depth is achieved.
