Pruning

 

We offer a variety of pruning methods to suit your goals:

  • Crown cleaning: removes dead and defective branches.  

 

 

  • Raising: increases clearance for structures and access

 

  • Thinning: increases light penetration and air movement.

 

  • Pollarding: highly constrains growth and flower production.

 

Using spikeless climbing techniques, we try to make cuts that are few, small, and fast-healing. More generally, we respect the guidelines of ISA's Best Management Practices: Tree Pruning (2008) and the associated ANSI standards.
