Mature Tree Pruning

Mature trees should only be pruned for specific purposes and in a manner that protects and preserves the tree's natural form. Pruning should focus on maintaining tree structure, shape, health, and safety.
  • Crown cleaning--removes dead, dying, diseased, crowded, weakly attached, or low-vigor branches and water sprouts.
  • Crown thinning--selectively removes branches to increase light penetration and air movement and reduce the weight of heavy limbs.
  • Crown raising--removes lower branches to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, and signs.
  • Crown reduction--reduces the size and spread of crowns using reduction and thinning cuts, resulting in fewer sprouts than heading or stub cuts, and maintaining the structural integrity and natural form of the tree
  • Crown restoration--improves the structure and appearance of trees that have been storm-damaged or deformed by heading or stub cuts.
