Tree Crown Reduction
Crown reduction is the process of decreasing the size of the overall canopy of the tree. It is done by pruning the branches throughout the crown. We remove the crossing branches and deadwood to reduce the possibility of disease and pathogens infecting the tree.
We can work to the specifications provided by our customers. We can also provide them with information about the crown reduction process so that they can make a smart decision. We can reduce the tree by a specific percentage, or to a specified radius or height.
To ensure that mature trees remain healthy after a crown reduction, we will remove a maximum of 30 percent of the foliage. That way the tree can maintain its natural look. Through crown reduction, the tree improves its aesthetic value, prevent further damage, ensure healthy regrowth, and correct unbalanced weight.
End-Weight Reduction of Trees
Mature trees are required to be pruned on a regular basis to remove excessive weight from the branches’ ends. That process is known as end-weight reduction of trees. The process can lower the risk of branch breakage. Pruning can help prevent hazards happening during high wind conditions or storms. We are equipped with the right tools and experience to ensure trees on your property are pruned the right way. That way you can prevent storm damage from happening.
When you forego end-weight reduction of trees, it compromises their health. A tree must not be topped because it destroys its natural structure. It also starves the tree because of the loss of food generating leaves, as well as makes it more vulnerable for diseases.
Vista pruning is the process of improving the value of your property, as well as enhancing the beauty by creating visual access to the landscape surrounding it. We provide vista pruning services if you find your view blocked by the tree. We can help open up the view without damaging the tree. Our specialists have been trained to handle the job in a careful manner that can open up your view above the trees in your property.
Aesthetic pruning is the pruning of the tree to improve its character in a natural manner. It is the combination of knowing the essence of the tree, horticulture, artistic skill of the pruner, and the needs of the clients. It can be done for small trees and shrubs that are below 15 feet tall. We can create the foliage that suits your needs while considering the natural beauty of the tree or shrub.
