Tree Crown Cleaning-Tree Trimming in Boise, Idaho
Crown cleaning is the removal of dead, dying, broken, diseased, low vigor, and competing branches and water sprouts.
Live branches, small live twigs,and foliage should not be removed. It is important to focus on dead, diseased and weakened limbs only.
The dead limbs are removed completely. The tree is not topped, which involves the removal of live and dead branches at a certain, pre-determined length. This practice is never promoted by arborists or reputable tree trimming services.
Most pruning of mature trees falls into this category. Trees under stress or declining trees may need crown cleaning every 6 months to 5 years. In crown cleaning, do not remove healthy branches in the tree’s interior.
Remove dead branches – It is advisable to remove any dead branch larger than a two-inch diameter to minimize hazards if the branch were to fall. Dead or broken branches higher than 30 feet are of particular concern because of the speed they could hit the ground if they were to fall. Dead branches may also become a source of insect and disease pressure in the tree.
