Tree Pruning and Trimming
Proper tree trimming or pruning techniques require many years of study both in the classroom and outdoors in the field. Our arborists combine science and artistry to properly trim or prune trees. Jones Road Tree Service LLC follows the ANSI A 300 Standards for Tree Care Operations.
Tree trimming or pruning is one of the most common procedures of professional tree service companies. Proper tree trimming can enhance a tree’s natural beauty and also promote a tree’s health and longevity. On the other hand, improper pruning practices can cause irreversible damage weakening the plant and shortening the life of a tree.
Each branch that is removed or not removed has the potential to change how a tree grows. With this in mind, a branch should not be removed without a good reason. There are three main reasons to prune a tree:
Safety – Examples include dead wood over a roof or raising a tree’s crown that interferes with a driver’s line of sight.
Tree Health – Examples include the removal of diseased and/or dying limbs or crown thinning to increase light and wind penetration throughout the crown. In many cases, the removal of some branches by thinning can relieve excessive weight on major branches.
Aesthetics – Trees in the woods or rural settings usually grow well because they don’t have to contend with our urban environment. Trees in your landscape require considerable attention in order to successfully coexist with buildings, houses, automobiles etc. Aesthetic pruning can enhance the natural form and character of your trees and have a positive effect on your entire property.
In summary, correct tree pruning requires the consulation of a professional arborist. For more information on hiring Jones Road Tree Service to prune your trees, please contact us today by filling out our online Tree Services form or call us at 281-469-0458.
