Restoration Pruningimg_2264

Tree and shrub restoration pruning is the process of improving the structure of a tree or shrub that was previously damaged, topped, vandalized, over pruned or mis pruned. Restoration is not a solution to make a neglected tree perfect, this is an impossible task. Restoration pruning introduces growth of new, healthy shoots to try and renew the plant.

Restoration Pruning Goals

  • Improve appearance
  • Reduce shade & wind resistance
  • Maintain and /or improve plant health
  • Influence fruit and/or flower production
  • Correct damage and/or defects

Our tree service team is fully insured and uses modern well kept equipment to ensure our services are performed with integrity and professionalism.

Pruning Standards

With the American National Standard for pruning, ANSI A300, specifications can be written in a virtual infinite number of combinations. The following information is designed to help you understand exactly what will be accomplished in a pruning operation.

Branch Size

A minimum or maximum diameter size of branches to be removed should be specified in a ll pruning operations. This establishes how much pruning is to be done.

Pruning Objectives

Pruning objectives should be established prior to beginning any pruning operation. A300 provides two basic objectives.

Hazard Reduction Pruning

Hazards reduction pruning (HRP) is recommended when the primary objective is to reduce the danger to a specific target caused by visibly defined hazards in a tree. For example, HRP may be the primary objective if a tree had many dead limbs over a park bench.

Pruning Types

Hazard reduction pruning and maintenance pruning should consist of one or more of the pruning types noted below.

  • Crown Cleaning…Crown cleaning shall consist of the selective removal of one or more of the following items: dead, dying, or diseased branches, weak branches and waterspouts.
  • Crown Thinning…Crown thinning shall consist of the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration, air movement, and reduce weight.
  • Crown Raising…Crown raising shall consist of the removal of the lower branches of a tree to provide clearance.
  • Crown Reduction or Crown Shaping... Crown reduction decreases the height and/or spread of the tree. Consideration should be given to the ability of a species to sustain this type of pruning.
  • Vista Pruning…Vista pruning is selective thinning of framework limbs or specific areas of the crown to allow a view of an object from a predetermined point.
  • Crown Restoration…Crown Restoration pruning should improve the structure, form and appearance of trees which have been severely headed, vandalized, or storm damaged.

Tree’s offer a wide variety of benefits to your landscape. Trees clean the air you breathe, provide you and your family with oxygen and can even  help save water. While these are just a few of the benefits, they are all the reasons on why we only like yo remove trees that cannot be saved.

Tree removals are performed on dead and /or dying trees as well as trees that have become hazardous and cannot be saved by any other accepted means. Our professional Arborist can help you decide whether your tree needs to removed or not. When it is decided that tree removal is necessary, our professionally trained experts will remove your trees safely and efficiently.

Tree removals are the most hazardous aspect of Arboriculture and should only be performed by professionals. Tree’s that need to be removed are often growing near home, power lines and other confined areas. Tree removal requires proper training and experience to successfully and safely complete the removal. Once removed trees are usually cut within 3 inches of ground level.

deer repellent

November is here and that means deer season is here as well. Every November when the native food supply dies off with the season, deer go looking for what is left. What is left is often evergreens and tasty shrubs found in back yards. Every winter, deer cause millions of dollars in landscape damage. This damage can be prevented with a deer repellent.

The deterrent we use here at Berns Landscaping is winters longest lasting deer repellent on the market. This deterrent gives our clients 6 months of protection, once spray now will last you well into the spring. There is also no need to reapply in the snow and ice of winter, unlike similar sprays which only last a few weeks at best.

The active ingredient in our application is thiram, a strong taste-deterrent that will protect shrubs and trees from starving deer. Our application spray comes with a colorant built in to help tone down the white coloring of thiram. This allows for your plants to look as natural as possible while protecting them all winter long from hungry deer.

If you live in an area where deer frequently cause damage to your landscaping, give us a call today! We will be more than happy to give you a free quote over the phone for our deer repellent application services and answer any questions you may have! If you are unable to call you can also fill out our free online request form and a member of our staff will get back to you at your convenience!
