Enhance Your Tree's Health With Quality Pruning

The ultimate goal of tree trimming and pruning is to maintain both the health and appearance of the tree while keeping the property and buildings protected from any future damage.

Properly pruned trees have a natural appearance. Having in-depth knowledge about different tree species' growth patterns, sunlight requirements, and the branch-shedding patterns of free-standing trees and trees growing in groups is imperative.

The professional arborists at Lusk Tree Service are experienced and trained to understand the precise cuts required to remove dead, damaged, or diseased limbs in a way that most benefits the health of the tree. Our maintenance tree trimming and pruning is designed to eliminate entry points for bacteria and decay fungi.

We believe in respecting the life of the tree and treating it as a living system, in conjunction with its surroundings. Our certified arborists service the Winston-Salem area.

Tree Pruning near Winston-Salem, North Carolina

What Is Tree Pruning?

Tree pruning is the removal of dead, dying, damaged and/or diseased limbs. The precise placement and number of cuts are extremely important when working to preserve old trees. We work with an awareness of how trees naturally shed limbs. Moreover, a professional arborist knows the correct “dose” and placement of cuts when living branches need to be removed.

Tree Topping: Why It's Bad For Trees

Tree Topping Is Detrimental To Tree Health & Structure

While tree topping is not as prevalent as it once was in our community, another “epidemic” has begun to surface in the form of over-thinning, over-pruning, or “lion tailing.” This involves the excessive and needless cutting of living limbs and sprouts in the interior of a tree’s crown, leaving only tufts of foliage on the end of branches. Often as much as 50 to 75 percent of tree foliage is removed.

Outdated and still advocated by some, tree topping and over-pruning are the most widespread abuses in the modern landscape.
