Tree Trimming

 

 

Tree trimming has four classes established by the National Arborist Association to accommodate varying work needs in concern to tree trimming. Tree Trimming is what we do!


CLASS I - FINE Tree Trimming 

Fine tree trimming is recommended for premium quality work with an emphasis on aesthetic considerations in addition to structural enhancement. Fine tree trimming consists of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, decayed, interfering, objectionable, obstructing, and weak branches, as well as selective thinning to lessen wind resistance. The removal of such described branches is to include those on the main trunks, as well as those inside the leaf area.

Standard tree trimming consists of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, decaying, interfering, objectionable, obstructing, and weak branches, as well as selective thinning to lessen wind resistance.

CLASS III - HAZARD Tree Trimming

Hazard tree trimmingis recommended where safety considerations are paramount. Hazard tree trimming consists of the removal of dead diseased, decayed, and obviously weak branches, two inches (5 cm) in diameter or greater.
