Need professional tree pruning? Since 1978, Ross Tree Company has provided professional tree trimming and pruning services in the Denver area. Proper tree pruning is both a science and an art. The “science” is plant physiology. The “art” is taking the time to prune a tree into an appropriate shape. Generally, pruning trees involves removing damaged, weak or dead limbs.

Types of Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is a careful and sensitive business because every species of tree is different and has varying pruning needs. Some trees need trimming in late winter, while others need pruning at the end of the summer. We offer all types of tree pruning in all seasons. Keep reading for more information.

  • Structural Pruning – Forest trees grow straight and strong in competition for light. In an urban setting, like Denver with 300 days of sunshine per year, the abundance of sunlight causes trees to produce excessive branching. Additionally, Denver is also known for its spring and fall snow storms. Heavy snow can wreak havoc on trees and break limbs, known as mechanical breakage. Structural pruning prepares trees to handle Denver’s snow storms. This type of pruning favors a single dominate leader that promotes stronger tree growth around a single trunk. Weaker tree limbs get trimmed back to their strongest point or are removed.
  • Safety Pruning – Deadwood in trees can be a hazard. Hard winters, squirrels, or disease all contribute to dead or dying branches. Safety pruning removes deadwood from a tree to prevent limbs falling in a yard, adjacent property, or on sidewalks.
  • Shaping – Every tree has a unique shape. To highlight the beauty of each tree, we prune them in a way that encourages natural growth. Our Arborists understand the growth patterns of various local trees, and, with custom pruning, can enhance the beauty of each tree species in your yard.

Our Trees look terrific!!! Your men were so nice and such hard workers. They did a great job and cleaned up nicely. It was a pleasure to have them here.
