Tree and Shrub Pruning

Pruning is one of the most important maintenance practices for the care of your trees and shrubs, enhancing their health and natural beauty.  There are two main objectives when pruning; hazard reduction and maintenance pruning.  Hazard reduction reduces the risk of structural failure caused by visible factors while maintenance pruning keeps your tree healthy and structurally sound.  North Castle Landscaping & Tree Service’s arborists practice the principals and standards set by the International Society of Arboriculture and the Tree Care Industry.  Proper pruning techniques help your trees remain healthy and beautiful while enhancing your property and giving it character. 

Reasons to prune and thin trees and shrubs:

  • Stimulate fruit and flower production
  • Eliminate decayed, broken, dead or diseased branches
  • Allow more sunlight to lawns and plantings
  • To thin the crown to permit new growth and better air circulation
  • Provide clearances for play area, pedestrian walkways, parking areas and lamp-posts
  • Guiding branches away from structures and electrical hazards
  • Eliminate excess weight of limbs for safety
  • Maintain the natural beauty of the property
