Tree Pruning

Most urban landscape trees require some corrective pruning to develop proper form and safe branch structure. A young tree given regular attention (every 3 to 5 years) has a much greater chance of staying healthy and vigorous to become a heritage for decades (even centuries) to come. 

Older mature trees generally require a “house cleaning” type of maintenance to maintain their overall health and safety. We recommend removing no more than 25% of the crown for any mature tree. We also will not “top” or pollard a tree because of the extensive negative effect this has on its future health.


Common reasons for pruning are as follows:

  • corrective leader and branch training of young trees
  • removing crowded, crossing or rubbing branches
  • eliminate potential hazards by removing deadwood and stubs
  • structure corrections to reduce storm and wind damage
  • clearing buildings, roofs, chimneys, etc.
  • removing limbs damaged by adverse weather conditions
