Correct pruning is an essential part of responsible tree care. Through decades of research, the ISA has established specific guidelines for pruning that we follow. These techniques improve a tree's health and enhance its beauty.
Depending on the needs of a homeowner—and the target tree—our tree pruning may include any of the following steps:
-Correct any previous poor pruning
-Selectively remove crossing branches
-Raise the crown to provide more space under the tree
-Reduce the crown to lower the tree's height (this is NOT topping a tree)
-Thin the tree carefully to create more light and air flow
In any given year, no more than 25% - 33% of a tree can be removed through pruning. A mature tree, especially, is vulnerable to too much pruning. The experts at GR Tree Services will prune only as much as is safe for the tree so the homeowner can enjoy its beauty for years to come.
