Raising the Crown of a tree because it has become a hazard to your home or electrical lines is often necessary but must be done correctly. Did you know it's easier for a tree to recover from multiple small wounds than it is from one major limb removal. Doing both too close together can kill your valuable tree.
The Arborist's at Cedar Park Tree Experts know how much and when to remove live tissue from your trees.
The amount of removal depends on the type, age and size of the tree. Younger trees are more resilient to the removal of a higher percentage of living tissue. Mature trees are more delicate. They don't produce as much sugar and energy as younger trees therefore recovery takes more time. When a tree does not fully recover from improperly raising the crown it becomes susceptible to decay, insect infestation and weak/brittle limbs. So think twice and consult an arborist before simply removing a limb that may be in the way. Call us for professional advice, (512) 379-2099
Promote healthy trees.
The right amount of thinning encourages upright, healthy growth from young trees and promotes longevity from mature trees. A common mistake is to remove too much inner foliage, small branches and larger lower limbs all at once. Leaving an even distribution of foliage on the lower crown as well as along the upper limbs is vital. Too much reduction increases the chances of major breaks and fallen trees.
