Tree Pruning and Trimming Cincinnati, OH
Tree trimming and pruning should be performed by a professional tree service. There is a right and wrong time to remove limbs and trim back overgrowth. Experienced and skilled professionals know when, where and how much to remove for the health of the tree.
Shaping a tree for appearance can also improve health and longevity. However if it is done incorrectly it can injure the tree and cause it to die. Regular maintenance will make your tree flourish and thrive.

Terms to Know:
Crown thinning is removing the outer portion of smaller branches on the outer crown to produce uniform and consistent foliage appearance. It does not alter the overall shape or size of the tree. Typically crown thin is done to allow more light to pass through and reduce weight and wind resistance.
Crown Lift or Raising
Crown lift is removing the lowest branches. It normally only includes removal of small branches that are not directly connected to the trunk. Crown lifting should be avoided on older trees.
This is reducing the height and/or spread of the crown of the tree. This method is used to reduce mechanical weight on specific branches or reduce shading and fit the tree to immediate surroundings. Not all trees are suitable for crown reduction, make sure your tree service knows their stuff.
