Proper tree care and maintenance

Pruning should be a common tree maintenance procedure. Pruning is often a common practice to remove dead branches, improve tree structure, and enhance tree growth, in addition to safety and aesthetics. Pruning should be done after mid-October and before the end of April.

Pruning during this dormant period is less stressful on the tree and the absence of leaves makes the tree structure more visible. Insects and disease are minimal at this time as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pruning provides both cosmetic and structural benefits to trees, increasing property values and enhancing the beauty of your yard. When trees are young, the primary goal of pruning is to provide a strong structure to support future growth. As trees mature, pruning goals change from structural considerations to encouragement of energy production and beauty. For mature trees, emphasis is placed on removing branches that do not contribute significantly to energy production, thereby channeling the tree’s energy into stronger remaining branches. Pruning also is important when considering hazard reduction and safety. If dead and defective limbs are present in the trees, they need to be removed as soon as possible before they fail
Although it all depends on your pruning objectives, most trees can be pruned year-round, if pruned properly. Surprisingly, winter can often be the best time for an arborist to prune. Since the leaves are off, the view of the entire tree’s architecture is clear and a thorough check can be performed. They can locate dead wood by looking for changes in branch color, fungus growth, cracks, and other symptoms that can help them make this determination.
Pruning a tree correctly requires knowledge and skill. Each pruning style is different and suited for a specific area. Pruning techniques include:

Maintenance tree pruning- Removing dead, dying, diseased, crossing branches.

Hazard reduction tree pruning- Larger deadwood is removed for safety.

Vista tree pruning- Selectively removing limbs without injuring the tree in order to reveal a previously blocked view.

Crown Raising- Removing lower branches, most commonly in areas where there is a driveway, walk-way, or parking area.

They give us clean water to drink, air to breathe, shade and food to humans, animals and plants. They provide habitats for numerous species of fauna and flora, firewood for cooking and heat, materials for buildings and places of spiritual, cultural and recreational importance.
There are a number of different reasons that trees need regular pruning, and these include things like safety, the beauty of your trees, as well as their health. Broken or dead branches can be a real nuisance, as well as a fairly serious hazard, especially when they are overhanging your roof. Having a professional come out and prune off the branches that could pose a threat to your property not only helps to protect your home from damage, but it can also work to keep your trees healthy and thriving as long as it's done correctly.
