While pruning does enhance the appearance and value of you landscaping, it's importance is more than cosmetic. Pruning is more than just a haircut for your trees, it's a way to help them live longer, healthier lives.
- Pruning can be used as a corrective measure to help young trees grow in a certain way (ex. "up" instead of "out," or vise versa.
- Pruning remove weak, dead, storm-damaged, diseased, or interfering branches.
- Pruning provides clearance for streets, sidewalks, driveways, structures, and overhead lines.
Proper Pruning Techniques
Our arborists take great pride in having the knowledge and skill to correctly prune any size trees. At Tall Timbers, large trees are pruned entirely, with climbers often maneuvering around the end of each limb to remove crossing, dying, diseased or weak branches and deadwood. Limbs may also be thinned to increase light penetration, air movement, and to reduce weight. No more than one-third of the foliage can be removed at any one time without negatively affecting the health of the tree.
