Tree PruningOn many older trees, pruning is mandatory to remove dead and dying branches to preserve tree healthiness and safety.
This pruning type of tree service is referred to as crown cleaning. Research has now recognized that the removal of dead and dying branches to reduce overall concentration significantly reduces wind resistance and subsequent inclement weather damage. This is extremely important when living in a hurricane and storm-ridden state like Florida. Thinning should only be done on trees where the crown of the tree is too dense, which we are the experts at determining. Thinning should be concentrated on the interior crown portion of the canopy, leaving as many branches on the exterior as possible. Sometimes the crown or individual branches necessitate a reduction in length to improve the form and structure of the tree, to eliminate intrusion with objects and structures, and to compensate for structural weaknesses. The branches that are lower on the tree may also require pruning for similar reasons. This process is called raising and it also can be used to increase the amount of sun for turf-grass and ground covers beneath the top of a tree.
You need to understand that your trees are an investment, and that’s why our professional arborists specialize in every aspect of a tree’s heath, targeting specific branches and limbs to increase the long-term and overall health of the tree. Other reasons for tree trimming include:
remove deadwood; damaged, or diseased sections,
increase safety of property and surrounding homes,
clear private utility lines and meet requirements of city codes,
remove obstructive limbs,
comply with common insurance requirements
increase sunlight for turf and improve overall aesthetics of your yard.
Every cut made during tree pruning can change the look and growth patterns of a tree. That’s why it’s important to let a professional arborist survey the tree and select each branch for removal, so that the process is deliberate and made in consideration of the entire structure. When pruning younger trees, it is particularly important to create structurally-sound branch scaffolding that will define the long-term health, visual appeal, and shape of the tree. This type of evaluation requires extensive knowledge and experience, both of which are provided by 1 Tree Experts years of experience.
WHY HIRE 1 TREE EXPERT?
Effects of Improper Trimming
Improper pruning techniques not only harm a tree’s current structure, but also they can stifle future healthy growth. Mismanaged pruning can result in:
stubbed branches or flush cuts, which causes die-back
stripping of the canopy which reduces the tree’s ability to make food,
increasing the chance of sun scald,
reduced height and width of the tree which can increase decay, disease, and weak branch connections.
More importantly, poor pruning can also lead to increased maintenance costs and a reduction in property value that can take years to undo. We use the most current practices when trimming, which helps your trees and the surrounding environment thrive.
At 1 Tree Expert, we know that tree species are very different and, therefore, need different maintenance. The percentage of canopy that should be removed from your tree depends on the species, health, and age. Removing too much of the tree’s canopy can have very negative consequences, but with 1 Tree Experts pruning techniques you always get maximum growth with each specific tree. When you hire our Tree Surgeons, you will always get the professional opinion of professional Arborists that are committed to the health of your trees.
1 Tree Expert’s Three Stages of Proper Trimming
Crown Cleaning-includes the removal of dead and damaged branches, hazardous branches that rub or are weakly connected, or diseased branches.
Crown Thinning-removes selected suckers and branches through the interior of the tree. We also remove selected branches in crowded parts of the canopy, creating a lacier effect. This allows for increased air flow and light penetration that benefits the tree by reducing diseases, molds and fungi.
Crown Raising–This final step removes downward-growing limbs and reduces overall weight on limbs. We never remove major limbs unless previously discussed with the client, allowing us to preserve the overall characteristics of each tree. If we see limbs that are growing into structures or need to be removed for other reasons, we discuss this with the client before removal begins.
Our Trimming Service:
Limbs up to six inches in diameter or less are included in the general trimming price unless otherwise agreed upon. Once trimming is completed, all reasonable debris will be removed from the property unless otherwise agreed upon.\
