At a basic level, this can include removal of major deadwood, problem or structurally compromised branches; clearance from structures and canopy raising.

Taking it further, this can include pruning and thinning for light infiltration, reduced wind resistance, shaping and overall aesthetics & beauty.

Tree Trimming

 

Tree trimming has four classes established by the National Arborist Association to accommodate varying work needs in concern to tree trimming.

CLASS I - FINE Tree Trimming

Fine tree trimming is recommended for premium quality work with an emphasis on aesthetic considerations in addition to structural enhancement. Fine tree trimming consists of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, decayed, interfering, objectionable, obstructing, and weak branches, as well as selective thinning to lessen wind resistance. The removal of such described branches is to include those on the main trunks, as well as those inside the leaf area.

CLASS II - STANDARD Tree Trimming

Standard tree trimming is recommended where aesthetic considerations are secondary to structural enhancement and tree health concerns. Standard tree trimming consists of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, decaying, interfering, objectionable, obstructing, and weak branches, as well as selective thinning to lessen wind resistance.

CLASS III - HAZARD Tree Trimming

Hazard tree trimmings recommended where safety considerations are paramount. Hazard tree trimming consists of the removal of dead diseased, decayed, and obviously weak branches, two inches (5 cm) in diameter or greater.

CLASS IV - CROWN REDUCTION Tree Trimming

Crown tree trimming reduction consists of the reduction of tops, sides or individual limbs. This practice is to be undertaken only for the following reasons:

  • In situations where branches interfere with utility lines.

  • When there has been significant crown dieback.

  • When it is necessary to achieve specific topiary training or dwarfing.

  • In cases where, due to storm damage or prior incorrect pruning, it is appropriate to trim for safety and aesthetic reasons.
