Excellent Tree Pruning Services available in Trafalgar

Before you grab the pruning shears and head out into the garden, consider this. Do you know enough about pruning to help rather than harm the shrubs, hedges, and trees in your garden? It is all too easy to cut too close to a growth point, or prune at the wrong time of the year.


You should leave pruning of large trees to professionals who have the right equipment. Common tree pruning types include:


  1. Crown raising removes lower branches on mature or developing trees to clear sidewalks, lawns and streets for improved visibility and access. Such trimming encourages growth in the higher branches.
  2. Crown Thinning involves letting in light to promote growth by removing some of the top branches of young trees. Such trimming will improve a tree’s form too.
  3. Crown Cleaning means removing dead or diseased wood that could inhibit a tree’s growth.
  4. Crown Reduction is not ideal as it will inhibit a tree’s growth. It is used with caution when there is no other option available.
