Structural Pruning- used commonly for the all-around health of your tree, no matter the age. This method helps to prevent tree failure and disease by removing the weakly attached limbs, dead limbs, and low vigour limbs. A light thinning of the canopy is taken into this technique to allow air circulation, as well as to prevent these issues from reoccurring. Clearance Pruning- this technique is used both cosmetically and for safety. The uses for this expand broadly; utility lines, roadways, branches too close to your building, for your satellite dish, or the view to the lake. This method could include a crown reduction to lower the overall height of the tree and/or raise the canopy to allow for adequate clearances. Dead-Wooding- commonly used for public safety, tree appearances, and overall health of trees. Consisting of the removal of all dead, dying, or diseased limbs and branches. Fruit Tree Pruning/Production- while most tree pruning techniques avoid causing stress to your specimen, this particular technique promotes it. Causing stress to your fruit tree creates heavy fruit production. However unwanted epicormic growth increases making it beneficial to annually prune. Pruning your fruit tree is best performed just prior to bud break, typically late winter or early spring. For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us.
