Tree Pruning

Tree Pruning is one of the most common practices to ensure proper tree health.

Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure.

Although forest trees seem to grow quite well with only nature’s pruning, the conditions for the health and growth of trees in a forest are typically far superior than those in our urban or suburban backyards. We are also more concerned for our own safety and sometimes for the appearance of our trees in our backyards.

Whatever the reason for pruning a tree, the practice should be done with an understanding of how the tree responds to each cut. Improper pruning can cause damage that will last for the duration of the tree’s existence. Poor pruning can even hasten the decline or death or our trees.

Each of Truetimber’s employees has been trained in proper pruning technique. The cutting is done in a way that meets the industry standard (ANSI A300 Pruning Standard), and the movement of the arborist within the canopy of the tree is done in a way that minimizes the impact of the process.

When we climb your trees to perform pruning tasks, we never use climbing spurs that cut into the tree. Our expert climbers access tree canopies by rope and only contact the tree with shoe soles and hands.
