The Jackson family offers services that keep the safety of your family as a first priority. Removing dead limbs or overextended limbs decrease the likelihood of breakage and keep branches from interfering with wires, buildings, sightlines, or yard activity.
Our Tree Pruning & Trimming Services
- Crown Cleaning: This is the removal of dead, broken, and crossing limbs, sucker sprouts on trunks, and weak or diseased limbs. A crown cleaning improves structure, appearance, and health of the tree.
- Crown Thinning: Crown thinning is the careful selection of branches to be removed to achieve increase in sunlight penetration, airflow, and significantly reduce weight in the crown of a tree. Pruning by crown thinning helps stimulate and maintain interior foliage.
- Crown Reduction: This procedure reduces the height and/or spread of a tree by pruning back the tips of its limbs. Crown reduction is only for soft-wooded trees such as a Bradford pear, since they are the most prone to break in a storm.
- Crown Raising: This practice properly removes lower branches to provide clearance for homes, parking, etc.
How Do You Know If Your Tree Should Be Trimmed?
- Broken branches: It’s important to try and get any broken, split, or hanging limbs out of your tree as soon as possible so no further damage will occur.
- Branches over power lines: It’s important to trim back branches that could be close to power to avoid fires and other electrical issues.
- Dead or diseased branches: It’s important to remove dead limbs to avoid safety hazards such as the limb falling on your house, child, dog, you, etc. diseased limbs are just as serious to remove to stop the spread of disease throughout the tree.
- Misshapen tree: This one isn’t as important to the tree’s health but I mean who doesn’t want their tree to look good rather than a wonky misshapen crazy tree?
- Trees damaged by a storm: Tree’s damaged by storm damage often cause a lot of damage to trees surrounding it as well, it’s important to get some clean-up trimming on the tree done, so they can go up and flush the limb or remove any hanging limbs that may be in the tree.
How Do You Know If Your Tree Should Be Deadwood?
Deadwooding is the process of removing dead or dying branches from trees, and it provides a range of benefits that can help keep your trees healthy, safe, and attractive. First and foremost, deadwooding is essential for maintaining the safety of your trees and the surrounding area. Dead or dying branches can become unstable and pose a significant hazard to people and property. Additionally, deadwooding can help improve the overall health and appearance of your trees. Dead branches not only look unsightly, but they can also attract pests and diseases that can spread to healthy parts of the tree. By removing these branches, you can reduce the risk of these problems and promote healthy growth. If you are not experienced in deadwooding, it is important to hire a professional arborist who can safely and effectively perform this task.
How Do You Know If Your Tree Needs A Crown Reduction?
You know your tree could use a crown reduction when it outgrows its space or is not growing proportionately. Crown reduction is a common tree pruning technique that involves selectively reducing the height and/or spread of a tree’s crown, which is the uppermost part of the tree that consists of branches, leaves, and other foliage. This pruning technique is often used to manage the size and shape of a tree, as well as to improve its structural integrity, health, and overall appearance. Crown reduction can be an effective technique for managing trees that have outgrown their space, especially in urban areas where space is limited. Reducing the size of the tree’s crown, it can allow more light to filter through to the ground and create a more open and inviting space. Additionally, crown reduction can help to prevent damage to nearby structures, such as homes and power lines, by reducing the risk of falling branches.
