Tree pruning is often a necessity for amenity trees and is performed for numerous reasons. If performed correctly it should not only accommodate the human needs such as clearance pruning or hazard mitigation but it should also improve the structure and health of the tree.

Typical reasons for pruning include:

• Removal of deadwood or damaged branches.
• Crown reduction to maintain the size and shape, while providing the best service to the tree (this is not topping) , topping is only done if that is what the customer really wants as it is not a correct arboricultural practice and we will give advice on what should be done for both you and the trees benefit.
• Crown lift: this is lifting the canopy by removing the bottom branches and can quit often clean up that messy old tree and give it its rightful place in the garden as a feature.
• Increased light penetration or air flow
• Clearance from buildings, service wires and footpaths
• Hazard reduction by removing heavy limbs over buildings
• Reduction in wind load of branches in the canopy
• Reduction in leaf litter for pools and gutters
• Clearance or thinning for aesthetic reasons such as views
• Selective pruning to improve the health and longevity of the tree

It is important to understand that pruning has the potential to seriously damage the tree and create more problems than before if it is not carried out correctly using the required techniques, proper cuts and with an understanding of the biology of the tree involved and how it will respond. At Treespecs we use a variety of techniques to ensure these goals are achieved - affordably and reliably.
