WHAT KIND OF TREE TRIMMING PRETORIA DO YOU NEED?
How a tree is pruned depends on several factors, including the tree’s health, the tree species, size, and location, as well as what you’re trying to accomplish.
Typically, pruning involves one of our arborists ascending the tree to get a good look at the branches to be removed. Using the appropriate tool(s), the arborist will make precise pruning cuts in the right places to achieve the desired outcome without harming the tree.
Our Tree Service Professionals will examine your trees to determine which type of tree trimming is best for the health, safety, and appearance of your trees. WHAT KIND OF PRUNING IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
4 TREE TRIMMING SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY PROBLEM.
Most pruning or tree trimming work can be done year-round, but some trees are best pruned at specific times of year. We’ll let you know the best time for your trees so you can schedule the work at a time that works for you and your trees for any tree trimming work.
Your tree is blocking access to buildings or obstructing cars and pedestrians. It’s getting in the way of your view
SOLUTION: CROWN RAISING
By removing selected lower branches from a tree, crown raising can provide additional clearance to open up vistas and restore access. If possible, it’s best to do this type of pruning before a tree reaches maturity in order to avoid large wounds.
There isn’t enough sunlight or air flow through the center of the tree. Your tree has some very heavy branches. There are structural defects or competition between branches. Your tree is at risk of damage during storms
SOLUTION: CROWN THINNING
When thinning a tree, branches are selectively pruned out to reduce the density of live branches in the tree canopy. This increases light penetration and air movement throughout the tree, stimulates interior growth and reduces wind resistance (which decreases the risk of storm damage). Done properly, thinning maintains the tree’s natural shape.
Your tree is too tall or too wide for the space it’s in. It’s encroaching on utility lines or structural elements (such as your roof). You don’t want to cut down the tree
SOLUTION: CROWN REDUCTION
Reduction pruning reduces the overall size and/or spread of the tree. This isn’t “shearing” or “topping” a tree – it’s precision work that cuts each branch at just the right spot to help maintain the overall form, health and structural integrity of the tree.
You can see dead, dying, diseased, crowded, or spindly branches throughout the tree
SOLUTION: CROWN CLEANING
Crown cleaning involves the removal of all branches that aren’t contributing to the overall health and appearance of the tree. We can also remove items that shouldn’t be in the tree canopy. The end result is a healthier and better-shaped tree
