Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Pruning is often desirable or necessary to maintain safety, improve tree structure and health, satisfy customer goals, and make the tree aesthetically pleasing.

Tree Pruning Options

Crown cleaning: is the selective removal of dead, diseased, broken, or weakly attached branches from a tree crown. This is the most common pruning technique for landscape trees. Regular pruning should correct small growth problems before they have a chance to become large problems.
Crown thinning: includes crown cleaning as well as selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement throughout the crown, and to improve structure.
Crown raising: removes the lower branches of a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, signs, vehicles, pedestrians, and lines of sight.
Vista pruning: is pruning to enhance a view.
Crown reduction: is used to reduce the size of a tree. This is best accomplished by cutting limbs back to their point of origin or back to laterals capable of sustaining the remaining limb.
Crown restoration: if a tree has been previously topped, or has sustained storm damage, restoration pruning can improve the trees structure and appearance.

Some trees pose an unacceptable risk that cannot be mitigated except by removal  of the tree. Once it has been decided that a tree must be removed because its risk level is deemed unacceptable, action should be taken to remove it as soon as possible, or at least to exclude the targets beneath it until it can be removed. Removal of trees that pose an unacceptable risk may also pose a hazard to the arborists doing the removal. Sometimes cranes or special rigging methods should be employed to accomplish the removal safely.
