Tree pruning along Colorado’s front range is performed to protect trees, people and property. Fort Collins Tree Care trained arborists can provide for all your tree and shrub care needs. Heavy spring snows, hazardous limbs, and trees growing in poorly suited places are all reasons to consult with us.

Tree Pruning

Pruning objectives are to reduce risk of failure, enhance safety for property and people, maintain and improve plant health and vigor, provide clearance and improve vistas/views. Pruning type most employed are crown cleaning, crown thinning, structure prune, and restoration prune. Crown cleaning is the selective removal of broken, dead, diseased, and hazardous limbs. Crown thinning is the selective removal of live branches to reduce crown density. Focus is on the outer portion of the canopy where pruning is done to provide an even distribution of branches throughout the crown. Structure prune is done on small to medium trees to improve tree form. Pruning of live branches is done to influence branch spacing (Scaffolding), branch taper, branch attachment, and establishment of a dominant central leader when possible.

Restoration prune is done to improve a tree structure after storm damage.
