Why Prune Your Trees?

Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Pruning goals must consider tree growth and development and long-term effects on the tree. Objectives for pruning include:

  • Reducing tree or branch failure
  • Providing clearance
  • Reducing shade & wind resistance
  • Maintaining health
    Influencing flower or fruit production
  • Improving view and aesthetics

Our experts are knowledgeable on the biology and basic requirements of trees to accomplish pruning that will optimize tree health and structure.



Pruning to Clean – this involves the selective removal of dead, diseases, detached, cracked and broken branches.

Pruning to Thin – the selective removal of small live branches to reduce crown density. Most small branches are of the outside edge of the crown, so thinning is focused there. Proper thinning retains crown shape and size and provides an even distribution of foliage throughout the crown.

Pruning to Raise – selective removal of branches to provide vertical clearance. This shortens or removes lower branches to give clearance for buildings, signs or pedestrians.

Pruning to Reduce – the selective removal of branches and stems to decrease the height and/or spread of a tree or shrub. Not all tree and shrub species can be reduced.

Pruning to Restore – the selective removal of branches, sprouts and stubs from trees and shrubs that have been damaged.

Structural Pruning – the removal of live branches and stems to influence the orientation, spacing, growth rate, strength of attachment and ultimate size of branches and stems. Used of young and medium aged trees to develop sustainable trunk and branch arrangement.
