Pruning, Lacing, Dead Wooding Trees

Ensuring that the trees on your property are in top health can save you and your family a bundle. Proper pruning can lengthen a tree’s life, increase its value, and minimize liability issues. On the other hand, incorrect tree pruning can cause decay, increase liability, and harbor unwanted pests.

Lacing vs. Pruning Trees: What’s the Difference?  

The difference between having your tree pruned or laced may sound drastic, but these two popular tree-trimming methods have more in common than you may think. Lacing is actually a type of pruning. More specifically, tree lacing is a method of pruning trees in a way that helps trees more effectively admit light and air through their canopy and crown. In addition, lacing your tree can help keep pests away and ensure that fast-growing and top-heavy trees don’t become hazardous. On average, 20 to 30 percent of the tree’s overall canopy is removed. On the other hand, tree pruning involves removing far more significant portions of the tree. Pruning is most commonly administered to trees that are top-heavy or grow at accelerated rates. Pruning can help eliminate issues like crossing, co-dominate, and splitting branches.

Dead Wooding Trees  

As the trees on your property mature over time, it’s completely natural for them to produce “deadwood” near their crown. Dead Wooding your tree simply involves removing dead, dying, and diseased branches at the topmost part of the tree. This service is usually applied to treat trees that carry a lot of weight in their canopy. Trees that overhang public roads, houses, communal areas, and gardens are perfect candidates for dead wooding and should be cleared of dead or dying branches at least once a year.
