Tree Pruning

Keep your trees in tiptop shape

A lawn with unruly plants and trees can make a bad impression, especially for your neighbors and guests. By keeping your plants regularly trimmed with Brown's Tree Service, your neighbors will be envious of your yard.

Prune for health

Pruning not only improves the appearance of your trees, it also keeps them healthy by getting rid of dead wood and weak, infected branches. Proper pruning can improve vitality, appearance, fruitfulness, and structural integrity of trees. Competition for sunlight limits growth on the lower branches, selective removal of branches increases air circulation, light penetration, storm resistance, ground and roof clearance, and appearance.

Tree pruning is a very selective process, less is more. Never remove a large portion of the total canopy or inner growth/interior limbs. Over-pruning is all too common, this is why it is important to select an experienced, qualified arborist.

Each pruning cut is an injury to the tree. Trees use a tremendous amount of energy to wall off
and eventually cover these injuries with healthy new wood. Pruning cuts must be made at lateral limbs or branch collars. Improper cuts cause the injury to become decay.

Lion tailing is the act of removing a large portion of interior limbs. While quick and often inexpensive, lion tailing a tree can cause irreparable damage. There are no inner lateral limbs for support or to act as a counterbalance under loading by wind. Limbs are then upright and extremely tip heavy. These long, ponderous, tip heavy limbs will fail under any type of loading, particularly high winds, particularly during a storm.

Proper pruning involves removing specific sized deadwood, crossing and rubbing limbs, subordinating or removing double leaders, reducing or lightening specific limbs, raising the canopy for visual and physical clearance and selective thinning of the inner canopy. It is a process that should only be undertaken by a certified arborist.
