Tree Pruning

Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure we provide. Pruning is often desirable or necessary to remove dead, diseased, or insect-infested branches and to improve tree structure, enhance vigor, or maintain safety. Because each cut has the potential to change the growth of (or cause damage to) a tree, no branch should be removed without a reason. Removing foliage from a tree has two distinct effects on its growth.

Removing leaves reduces photosynthesis and may reduce overall growth. That is why we always perform pruning sparingly. Overpruning is extremely harmful because without enough leaves, a tree cannot gather and process enough sunlight to survive. However, after pruning, the growth that does occur takes place on fewer shoots, so they tend to grow longer than they would without pruning. Understanding how the tree responds to pruning is critical when selecting branches for removal.

 Pruning mature trees requires special equipment, training, and experience. If the pruning work requires climbing, the use of a chain or hand saw, or the removal of large limbs, then using personal safety equipment, such as protective eyewear and hearing protection, is a must. Tree Works can provide a variety of services to assist in performing the job safely and eliminating the risk of personal injury to yourself and damage to your property. We are also able to determine which type of pruning is necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees.
