Why Fall Pruning Matters

Fall is an ideal time for pruning as trees enter a dormant phase and prepare for winter. Fall pruning offers several benefits, including: 

  1. Health and Vigor: Removing dead, diseased, or damaged branches during fall pruning helps maintain the overall health and vigor of your trees. Pruning encourages optimal growth and ensures that valuable resources are directed to healthy branches and new growth. 
  2. Winter Readiness: Proper fall pruning prepares your trees to withstand the harsh winter conditions. By removing weak or structurally compromised branches, we reduce the risk of breakage under heavy snow, ice, or strong winds, protecting your property and ensuring the safety of surrounding structures. 
  3. Aesthetic Appeal: Fall pruning enhances the aesthetics of your landscape by promoting a balanced and well-maintained canopy. By selectively thinning the crown, we improve air circulation and light penetration, resulting in healthier and more visually appealing trees.

Our Approach: Promoting Health, Safety, and Winter Readiness

When it comes to fall pruning, West Side Tree Company follows a comprehensive approach to promote the health, safety, and winter readiness of your trees: 

  • . Crown Thinning: Our experienced arborists perform selective crown thinning, which involves the removal of specific branches to reduce the density of the canopy. This technique improves light penetration, air circulation, and overall tree health. Crown thinning also helps reduce the risk of branch failure during winter storms. 
  • Cabling: We assess the structural integrity of your trees and, if necessary, utilize cabling techniques to provide additional support to weak or structurally compromised branches. Cabling helps redistribute weight, preventing branch breakage and potential damage to your property. 
  • Wind Thinning: Fall is a critical time to evaluate trees for wind resistance. Our team identifies and selectively removes branches that may be susceptible to wind damage, ensuring your trees can withstand strong winter winds. 
  • Safety Pruning: Safety pruning is an essential component of fall pruning. Our experts inspect your trees for any hazardous branches that may pose a risk to people or structures. We carefully remove these branches, prioritizing the safety of your property and its surroundings.

Comprehensive Fall Pruning Services

At West Side Tree Company, we offer a comprehensive range of fall pruning services tailored to the specific needs of your trees. Our services include: 

  1. Selective Branch Removal: Our skilled arborists carefully evaluate each tree, identifying and removing dead, diseased, or damaged branches. This promotes tree health, prevents the spread of diseases, and reduces the risk of branch failure during winter storms. 
  2. Crown Thinning and Canopy Reduction: We perform selective crown thinning to reduce canopy density, improve air circulation, and enhance tree aesthetics. Canopy reduction is employed when a tree has grown too large for its intended space, ensuring a balanced and well-maintained appearance. 
  3. Cabling and Bracing: If your trees exhibit weak or structurally compromised branches, we employ cabling and bracing techniques to provide additional support. This helps redistribute weight and reduces the risk of branch failure, enhancing the safety and longevity of your trees. 
  4. Safety Pruning: Our team conducts safety pruning to identify and remove hazardous branches that pose a risk to people or structures. By eliminating these potential dangers, we prioritize the safety of your property and surrounding areas.
