Crown Cleaning and Thinning
Involves the correct removal of deadwood, crossing or conflicting limbs, and limbs that are weak, diseased, or otherwise prone to failure. Thinning allows essential airflow and sunlight throughout the crown of the tree, can reduce weight on heavy limbs, and improves the overall structure of a tree.
Crown Raising / Elevating
Involves the removal of lower limbs to essentially “elevate” the crown of a tree providing increased ground clearance. This type of pruning is beneficial in a number of different scenerios where lower branches of a tree may cause an undesireable obstruction such as blocking a view, or preventing a riding lawn mower from passing under. Elevating also allows for “house clearance”, and keeps our right aways free from intruding limbs.
Involves reducing the height of a tree. This type of pruning is used most often to provide clearance for utility lines. Unlike “topping” a tree, Crown Reduction, preserves the structural integrity and beauty of the tree.
