HTS Tree Care has staff trained in proper pruning and trimming techniques. Pruning is the most common form of maintenance performed on trees and is done in several different ways. Most pruning is performed to correct the growth structure of a tree or to prevent a tree from growing in a certain way, to increase the vigor of the tree, or to maintain safety. It is necessary to decide what type of pruning is necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees. Our Certified Arborists are available to perform free property evaluations and determine the best solution to you and your trees.
Pruning can be accomplished by several different methods. A crown cleaning is a selective way of removing dead, broken, diseased, or weak branches from a tree, generally to maintain safety. A crown thinning involves completing a crown cleaning as well as selective removal of internal branches to allow for increased air flow, weight distribution, and light penetration on the center of the tree and the landscape below. A crown reduction is pruning to reduce the size of a tree and is accomplished by trimming the outer parts of a tree to back to smaller branches. Other common types of pruning are for clearance away from buildings, utilities, or other trees, and elevating over walkways, paths, lights, or driveways. Species, size, location, and age are all factors to how a tree should be pruned.
The pruning of trees can be dangerous work and should only be performed by knowledgeable and skilled arborists. Mature trees may need specialized equipment and training to be pruned properly. Our staff is taught how to perform the job safely and reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to your property. Whether bucket truck access is available to the tree, or it is located in a remote area and needs to be climbed, HTS Tree Care can offer the best pruning service available at the best rate possible.
