All pruning will be done in accordance with (ANSI) A300 Standards for Pruning and Z133.1 Safety Standards.
Crown Cleaning - The selective removal of dead, diseased, broken or weakly attached limbs.
Crown Thinning- Includes crown cleaning, as well as the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown and structural beauty and retain the tree's natural shape. Care must be taken not to over-thin, as clearing out too much inner foliage can have adverse effects on the tree and should be avoided.
Crown Raising - Removes the lower branches of a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, signs, vehicles and vistas. It also allows direct light in under the canopy for lawn and landscape.
