Crown Cleaning

Crown cleaning of a tree’s canopy consists of pruning excess branches and limbs out of the crown of a tree. Pruning the deadwood and diseased limbs out of the tree is a healthy and common maintenance practice within arborculture.

Prune Deadwood

One of the most common and natural techniques of tree pruning. Pruning out the dead and diseased limbs from a tree.


Thinning out the interior crossing or rubbing limbs is a common and acceptable practice. Thinning can help reduce wind resistance in a tree, thus reducing the chances of a wind storm blowing over a tree.


Elevating the lower limbs on a tree is necessary at times when limbs are encroaching on a structure, or hang low over a sidewalk or road, etc. When elevating lower limbs on a tree, it is important to take a step back and see the entire tree, so the tree is balanced after the prune.

Clearing Limbs Away from a Structure

Are the squirrels keeping you up at night, or are the branches rubbing againsts your house? Clearing tree limbs away from your house or structure is a very common task. The branches should be cut properly, back to the nearest lateral limb just outside the branch collar.
