Thinning your tree is not simply a matter of removing branches. There’s a reason that people in our line of work are also called “tree surgeons.” The process is more involved as trees have growth cycles. After the spring, most trees have exhausted their energy in a seasonal growth spurt—meaning thinning them immediately after the spring could significantly harm it forever. Knowing when to thin a tree (especially crown thinning) is as important as knowing how to do it. Every cut in a round of thinning can be beneficial to a tree, but even a few inches off (or choosing the wrong branch) can permanently wound a tree and leave it open to infection.
Our Certified Arborist can personally inspect your tree or shrubs to decide if thinning is necessary, how much thinning is necessary, and when it should be done. Our teams are deeply experienced with all types and species of tree, giving us the ability to take care of your trees for the long haul.
