Town Tree Pruning

Forestry Group performs pruning of trees under Public Works jurisdiction. The Town prunes trees for safety, health, and structural improvements.

Crown Cleaning is the most common pruning practice.  It is used to remove dead, dying, diseased, damaged, and out of place branches.

Crown Reduction is used to reduce the overall size of a tree or a  portion of a tree by shortening  branches that go beyond the desired location.  This technique is used by Utility Companies to protect street lights and wires.

Crown Raising is used to provide clearance over roadways and pathways by the removal of lower limbs on a tree.
