Maintenance trimming is required to tidy up a hedge or shrub by cutting back on overgrown branches. While pruning focuses on the hedge's health and the safety of its surroundings, trimming is done mainly for aesthetic purposes.
Formative pruning is the process of shaping a tree when it is young. Every variety has a different natural growth habit, but unpruned fruit trees will for the most part produce a crown cluttered with branches so yielding smaller, lower quality fruit.
Crown thinning is the process of removing select branches to thin out the fullness of the tree. With proper techniques, thinning creates a balanced crown structure without altering the shape or size of the tree.
Crown lifting is the removal of the lowest branches and/or preparing of lower branches for future removal
Removal of Dead Wood
Removing dead wood makes for more attractive trees. It also helps to prevent disease from killing the trees. When a piece of a tree is compromised, it creates an opening for certain pests or pathogens and that can cause severe damage.
Felling is required for a number of reasons, such as for safety, to create new habitats, to thin out forests, to control pests and disease and to provide a sustainable source of timber.
Tree stump removal comes into play when trees are felled. When you remove trees from your property, they leave unsightly stumps behind. Stump removal is required to ensure the tree is removed completely.
Shrub & Fruit Tree Pruning
Cutting off dead or damaged parts of the tree through pruning promotes the growth of new buds and fruit.
