#1 Tree Care in Kalamazoo, Portage and surrounding areas! (Raising-Pruning Technique)

 raising: ( Pruning Technique ) 

Raising is yet another routine tree maintenance. Many trees develop large low branches when planted in the open. As a result, they tend to develop low spreading crowns and often impede visibility. Raising is something that will need to be done every two to three years to keep clearance under the tree at a desired height.


Excessive removal of lower limbs can slow development of trunk taper, can cause decay in trunk, and concentrates foliage at the top of the tree. Mature trees could become stressed if large-diameter lower branches are removed. Shortening limbs can achieve the same objective with less likelihood of this happening. 


Live crown ratio should be no more than 50 percent once raising is complete, more is better.
