Pruning a tree

Pruning Services

Lofty Heights Logging has the experience to properly prune trees for what is best for them. As a general rule, many of our native, slower growing trees need only a minimum of pruning while faster growing trees have more maintenance issues and are at a higher risk for failure. Early in a tree’s life, care should be taken to note the structure of the tree. Trees grown in more open landscapes may develop multiple leaders or crossing branching. If the tree’s crown grows uncorrected it may lead to crown failure later in life. On the other hand, trees planted in close proximity to other plants or structures may need to be thinned or reduced.

We avoid topping trees but can provide you with crown raising (removing lower limbs), crown reduction (properly reducing the overall length of branches) crown cleaning (removing deadwood) and crown thinning.
