Tree pruning services performed by a certified arborist enhance the natural beauty and structure of young trees. These trees then grow into a well-shaped and healthy part of New Orleans areas’ unique landscape. Proper tree pruning and tree trimming also helps reduce the need for corrective tree services later on. A strong central leader and well-placed branches will minimize tree damage and tree removal due to Louisiana’s unpredictable weather.
Benefits of Tree Pruning:
Health: Our tree pruning services include the removal of diseased, broken, or dead branches on mature trees and young trees alike for tree protection. This removes disease causing insect habitat and prevents decay-producing fungi from penetrating and infecting other areas of your tree. The removal of live branches is occasionally necessary to allow increased exposure to sunlight and circulation of air within the canopy.
Structural: Young tree pruning is pruning performed for structural enhancement. This important procedure helps ensure that your new trees have desirable branch architecture and structural integrity. Proper pruning of specimens when they are young reduces the potential of costly problems and the need for structural support as your landscape matures.
Appearance and Restoration: Tree pruning for appearance and restoration is essential for maximizing the beauty of formal plantings, to assist with landscape maintenance and tree preservation.
Safety: Tree pruning can protect against storm damage from high winds. This is particularly a concern for trees along pedestrian paths, driveways, and surrounding homes and buildings. Also, it is often necessary to prune trees with low-hanging branches in certain areas in order to eliminate interference with pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Visual Access: Increase your landscape’s value, and enhance its beauty with vista tree pruning. Vista pruning creates visual access to golf courses, lakes, gardens or other picturesque views, while maintaining privacy where desired.
