The primary techniques for pruning trees are training, cleaning, thinning, and raising. Some trees may need only one type of pruning while others may require all four:
Technique used on juvenile trees to ensure a good growth and branching pattern once the tree reaches maturity. Properly training a tree early in its lifespan can prevent the majority of problems before they start.
The removal of deadwood throughout the canopy.
The removal of crossing and rubbing branches. Thinning also opens up the canopy for better light penetration and takes the weight off heavier branches.
The lifting or removal of low hanging limbs. Raising may also be required for the clearance of buildings, fences, and utility lines.
Why You Should Prune
While nobody wants to remove a tree, circumstances sometimes require it. Arborlogical Inc. has 20+ years of experience removing trees in the most adverse scenarios one can imagine. Tree removal requires proper equipment, training, and knowledge.
Stump grinding is the preferred and most common method of stump removal. This process removes the visible remains of the tree to around 8” below the surface. Leaving the roots intact keeps from disturbing the surrounding soil and vegetation and allows natural decomposition to occur over time. The hole is generally backfilled with a combination of wood shavings and dirt or can be filled with topsoil and seeded over.
Shearing is one of the primary methods of shrub maintenance. A few select species of shrubs react well to shearing while others incur severe damage if sheared indiscriminately.
Cabling & Bracing
A technique used to prevent and treat branch failure. Cabling is most effective when used as a preventative measure to increase the longevity of older trees, but can also be used to treat existing splits.
Deep Root Fertilization
Trees need extra nutrients to reach their full potential and offset the lack of natural nutrient recycling in a manicured setting. Forest ecosystems are much different than the manicured environment in which we plant and maintain trees. Rather than having a forest floor covered in decaying organic material, our trees are competing for nutrients with turf, restricted by structures, and rooting in places with little to no nutrient recycling.
Insect & Disease Control
Insect and disease control is an important part of maintaining a healthy tree. Let Arborlogical Inc. identify the problem if you have one and provide you with the best solution.
