Our Tree Pruning Techniques
Tree Care Tip Video
- Thinning Thinning a tree’s canopy allows more light to penetrate it’s interior. The effect is a strengthening of the tree’s interior structure and an increase in trunk diameter. It also helps prevent disease and infection by increasing airflow.
- Structural Pruning Often a tree will seek out sunlight by growing laterally in excess. They may grow multiple trunks, excessively large or long lateral branches and often have too many branches originating from one point. The goal of structural pruning is to give the tree a single, dominant trunk with evenly spaced branches. This ensures a healthier and longer life.
- Canopy Reduction If your tree has outgrown its allotted space, it might be time for a canopy reduction. This technique consists of trimming the outer edges of the canopy to reduce its size.
- Lifting Ever hit your head on a branch while walking down the sidewalk? It’s no fun. Lifting let’s us increase the clearance at the bottom of trees.
- Crown Cleaning Crown cleaning is the practice of removing dead, dying, broken defective and diseased limbs from the tree.
Tree Pruning Techniques to Avoid
- Over thinning

When to Consider Tree Pruning Services in Elk Mills MD
With regular maintenance, a tree’s lifespan can be increased considerably. In cases where the tree is not in jeopardy, tree trimming might not be required. However, sometimes a tree’s roots or branches will grow to the point where they create construction impediments, by coming into contact with electrical wiring, drainage system, or water pipes. Other times trees become infected with disease, posing additional threats. Natural events such as storms that produce heavy winds may also take their toll on trees, leaving them vulnerable to falling. Other times, the roots of trees grow too large and end up damaging concrete above it. In these cases, tree pruning services in Elk Mills MD may become a necessity. No matter the reason, our tree care professionals have the know-how, machinery and expertise needed to get your job done.
