Trees require regular dead wooding and thinning to keep them in shape. Tree pruning incorporates different procedures :trimming, shaping, clipping, cutting, weight reduction and weight distribution. To remove excess weight dead branches and foliage are removed to pave the way for new growth. Pruning also mitigates risk to augment the life expectancy and health of the tree. This procedure is extremely important to distribute the weight of the structure and decrease the chances of snapping of branches or bringing down of a whole tree. Hedges require pruning twice in a year while large trees need to be pruned once in every few years to maintain the shape of the canopy and secure the structure of the heavy long limbs. The procedure of pruning and removal of dead wood varies depending on the species of the tree, size, location, condition and hazards surrounding it. Small hedges and trees use essential tools like hedge trimmers, hand saws and a ladder to remove the excess weight and shape the foliage.

Our team will perform the safety analysis of the site to take into account potential hazards and plan the job. The climber will then go up the tree and secure his safety lines. He lowers the rope to secure it from lower branches. A climbing saw and hand saw is then used to clip excess leaves and sticks and overweight branches to shape the canopy. The large pieces are then removed, attached to the rope and brought down to the ground crew. The technicians on the ground will remove ground waste and wood chips from the site, as the remaining green waste is broken down by the wood chipper and taken away from the property.
