Tree Trimming would always have a specific goal in mind – some examples would be Crown Thinning, Branch Reduction, Crown Cleaning or Vista Pruning.
· Crown Thinning
Selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown, and to improve structure. Crown thinning also helps reduce the chance of damage due to storms.
· Branch Reduction
Another way to reduce storm damage is to perform branch reduction which allows room for the shorter remaining branches room to grow. Removing branches can also help when trees are too close to overhead items such as utility lines.
· Crown Cleaning
Selective removal of dead, diseased, broken, or weakly attached branches from a tree crown. Removing dead wood helps stop the spreads of disease to healthy parts of the tree which boosts the health and growth of the tree. Pruning away dead wood also eliminates hazards, including injury from falling branches and property damage.
· Vista Pruning
Vista pruning is pruning or removal of branches to enhance or preserve your view. Vista pruning is often used for trees that are obstructing views such as lakes, golf courses, or windows.
