  Crown Cleaning is an effective maintenance technique to promote the health and well-being of
your mature trees. Crown Cleaning is the selective removal of dead, dying and diseased branches
from a mature tree. It is important to remove dead and dying branches from a tree to remove the
potential falling danger and promote healthy new growth.

  Tree thinning is a method in which small branches are selectively removed from the tree canopy.
Tree thinning targets branches 2 inches in diameter and less for removal. Tree thinning uses thinning cuts which minimize the potential for damage and decay to the tree.

Thinning is an ideal way to remove overgrowth from a mature tree canopy. Crown thinning
helps light penetration which may invigorate lawn growth. Crown thinning is an effective method to reduce canopy overgrowth of mature trees. Crown thinning is also used to partially open a view,
and is also referred to as vista pruning.


  Crown raising is a technique in which low hanging tree branches are selectively removed.
Crown raising is also referred to as limbing up of a tree.

. Crown raising is utilized to provide clearance for people, traffic or views. Crown raising should
be done in a manner which preserves the structural integrity of the tree.

Crown raising is used as part of structural training for young trees and should always be done
on branches less than 2 inches in diameter.

  Crown reductions reduce the entire size of a tree by reducing larger branches back to small branches
in the tree canopy. Crown reductions are not part of a routine maintenance plan and if performed too often can result in damage to the tree.

Crown reductions are performed on mature trees often to open up a view. Crown reductions rely upon heavy reduction cutting and should be performed by a trained arborist.
