Research has proven that the reduction of a trees density will also significantly reduce its wind resistance and subsequently reduce the risk of storm and wind damage that can later prove to be both costly and dangerous and can also result in the total loss of the tree.
Lower branches may require pruning for similar reasons. This process is known as Crown Raising and can be used to increase the amount of sunlight beneath the crown of your tree, or to simply create greater ground and structural clearance.
Proper Tree Pruning is required to remove the dead, dying and overgrown branches and limbs on your trees as well as to maintain the overall health and safety of your property, assets and trees. These pruning or trimming types are referred to as Crown Cleaning, Crown Raising or Crown Reductions, and depending on the particular needs of your trees and/or property, one of these trims may be recommended.
