Tree Trimming & Pruning

Proper pruning is essential in developing a tree with a strong structure and a desirable form. The expense of proper tree care is one of the best investments you can make because trees can contribute up to 15% of your property value.

Why should you trim your trees?
• Train young trees so they can mature properly.
• Remove dead wood prior to decay.
• Remove hazardous dead branches.
• Clearance needed for homes, roads and power lines.
• Decrease risk of storm damage.
• Pruning trees ensures longevity.
• Safety for you and your neighbors.
• Create an aesthetically pleasing landscape

PALM TREE PRUNING
Aesthetic pruning of a palm tree to eliminate lower or dead fronds and seed pods. Healthy fronds lying below or at the horizontal plane will be removed only if necessary to facilitate the removal of the seed pods. Fronds will be removed close to the petiole base without damaging live trunk tissue.

STRUCTURE PRUNING
Remove live branches to influence the orientation, spacing, growth rate, strength of
attachment and ultimate size of branches and stems. Structure pruning of a tree is
necessary to establish a sustainable trunk and branch arrangement.

THINNING
Selective removal of live branches to reduce the interior density, increase sunlight
penetration, reduce wind resistance and provide even distribution of foliage throughout the canopy.

CLEANING
Selective removal of dead, diseased, detached and broken branches to reduce the risk of branch failure and eliminate the movement of decay, insects and diseases.

RAISING
Selective removal or reduction of branches to provide vertical and horizontal clearance.

REDUCTION
Pruning of branches to decrease the height and spread of the tree. Portions of the crown will be pruned to balance the canopy and produce a more uniform appearance.

VISTA PRUNING
Selective removal or reduction of lower branches to provide vertical clearance and
enhance the view.

RESTORATION PRUNING
Selective removal of branches, sprouts and stubs from a tree that has been improperly
trimmed, storm damaged, vandalized or otherwise damaged.
