Crown cleaning: This is the selective removal of dead, diseased, broken, or weakly-attached branches from a tree crown.In addition, one of the most critical components of crown cleaning is identifying branches that are rubbing against each other, and then choosing the right one to keep and cutting the other.Crown raising: This is the removal of lower tree branches to provide clearance for buildings, signs, vehicles, pedestrians, and lines of sight.
“Vista pruning” is similar, which enhances a specific view.
“Crown reduction” is used to reduce the size of a tree.
Restoration after tree topping: In some cases, “crown restoration” is required for trees that have previously been “topped” and are sprouting vigorously or trees that have sustained storm damage. Restoration consists of the selective removal of some water sprouts, stubs, and dead branches to improve the tree’s structure and form.
