Cutting down a tree is very dangerous work. Only professional tree removal companies like ours, should be consulted. Tree removal is a lot more than having a chain saw and chopping it down by cutting the trunk of the tree until it falls. There are many reasons to cut a tree and not all of them involve complete tree removal. Unless the tree poses a danger or a threat to your property or persons, you may only need to have your trees trimmed.
There are many reasons and methods to trim/prune your trees. Pruning your tree(s) is essential in their growth and usually performed on fruit bearing trees and hardwoods. Careful planning of when and why to do tree pruning techniques is important to maintaining healthy trees.
The type of tree that needs pruning is very important because it may not have the ability to be restored properly. And sometimes the tree is damaged severely and cannot be restored successfully even if you have consulted a certified arborist. Some of the most common problems we see with damaged trees are broken trunks, tree stems split or pulled from the trunk, broken branches, and canopy damage. Most of these trees cannot be restored by restoration pruning.
Restoration of trees that have been topped is possible in some instances. To restore the topped trees, you must selectively cut the sprouts that are too close together. You will need to leave most of them intact. However, you need to selectively thin the sprouts so they will grow properly. This way, you will get a healthier looking limb later. These sprouts will grow into limbs over the next few seasons. Pruning a tree this way, allows the limbs not to compete for much needed minerals and starches while growing new limbs. Simply culling the weaker limbs is optimal in the growth and beauty of your tree in the future.
