Raising & Structural Pruning
One of the greatest ways to manage the pruning of trees in urban and suburban landscapes is to subtly raise the crown overtime. This strategy make is very gentle to the tree and passerby’sbys will hardly notice because the work will be so subtle.
Lower branches are kept shorter in diameter by reducing their length and then removing a few later on. This type of pruning can make it easier toward providing a better walkway underneath the tree especially for you to do constant yard work such as lawn mowing.
This type of pruning will also improve the branch architecture which will result in a much stronger tree.
