Trimming and Pruning

Pruning of woody landscape plants on a periodic basis can prevent future problems and maintain plant health and safety. Alpine Tree Service Arborists and staff are trained in proper techniques for tree care maintenance including all aspects of pruning.

Pruning of Young Trees

This is an important aspect of tree care. Early structural pruning helps young trees by:

  • Cleaning out dead, dying, broken or damaged branches
  • Developing a strong framework as it grows into maturity.
  • Removing defects
  • Establishing a single, dominant leader or selecting other desired structure

Pruning of Mature Trees

When pruning mature trees care and consideration should be given to the site; species, growth habit, size and maturity of the tree. Alpine Tree Service Arborists and staff employ different techniques of pruning in order to achieve the desired result. These may include:

  • Selectively removing dead, broken, diseased or weakly attached branches
  • Selective removal of branches to improve light and air circulation or to reduce the wind-sail effect
  • Removing lower limbs to provide clearance for vehicles, buildings, pedestrians and to improve lines of sight
  • Reducing the size of a tree while maintaining the structural integrity and natural form of the tree

Pruning of Specialty Trees

When pruning mature trees care and consideration should be given to the site; species, growth habit, size and maturity of the tree. Alpine Tree Service Arborists and staff employ different techniques of pruning in order to achieve the desired result. These may include pollarding and espalier.
