Wonder why you should prune your trees?
By: Advanced Tree Care
Many pruning methods are available and the terminology for pruning methods may differ between companies. The three most common methods used in residential pruning can best be explained in class types.
Class 1 - Fine pruning: Describes a very detailed inspection and a complete tip to stem pruning process. This includes removing all dead limbs, thinning, elevating, canopy shaping and removing limbs that could pose a future problem. Class 1 is the most common pruning method for residential projects.
Class 2 - General pruning: Similar to Class 1 although less involved. Very small dead limbs are not removed. This is a less expensive pruning method for the customer, however more frequent visits are necessary.
Class 3 - Safety pruning: This method is only for removal of dangerous limbs in a tree. No other pruning is conducted.
