You’ll never watch one of those HGTV shows where the host says, “Nah, don’t worry about that dangerous or overgrown tree. Buyers love that kind of thing!” One of the easiest ways to give your yard and landscaping a modern refresh, without adding or removing anything, is to simply have your trees trimmed.
Pruning of mature trees typically falls into one of four main categories:
Crown Cleaning – Crown cleaning entails removing dead, dying, broken or diseased branches. This is the category in which most trimming falls into.
Crown Thinning – Removing smaller branches in the more leafy canopy of the tree is referred to as crown thinning. This procedure requires a skilled arborist to ensure that over trimming or pruning is not occurring.
Crown Raising – This term refers to the limbing up of lower branches that often obstruct views. Crown raising is also a safe practice before a storm to ensure no low hanging branches will be swung into any structures.
Crown Reduction – Crown reduction is reducing the overall size of the tree by using reduction cuts to remove larger branches back to smaller branches. Crown reduction requires the extensive use of reduction cuts that predispose the branch or trunk to internal decay. For this reason, professional arborists discourage crown reduction. On older trees showing stress or decline, crown reduction can accelerate decline and death. In most situations, crown cleaning or crown thinning techniques better address the concerns of large trees prone to wind damage.
