Tree and Shrub Pruning in Richmond, VA

Trimming and maintenance for a beautiful property 

Trees can quickly become overgrown, unhealthy and hazardous if left uncared for. Carefully executed pruning can make a huge difference on your property. 

The trees at your home or business need more attention than the ones you see in the woods. Just like you mow your grass and water your plants, trees require routine maintenance. 

If you try to take on trimming your own trees you could end up stunting growth, damaging limbs or spreading tree diseases. Don’t let your trees rot or spread issues. 

Orleans knows there’s no room for error. Our arborists have the equipment and experience needed to prune your trees quickly and safely. 

Why and When to Prune Your Trees

Many trees can go years in between pruning visits but that means you need to remain aware of the reasons for pruning your trees and shrubs. 

Our arborists always prune with purpose. Every move is carefully calculated and made in the best interests of your trees. 

Orleans recommends pruning when limbs are dead, weak or diseased. Trimming your trees also comes in handy if branches are too close to a building or are oversized for your area. 

Most commercial and residential properties should consider pruning every 3 to 5 years. Small, young, large and old trees alike all need pruning. 

Pruning Techniques for Your Landscape: 

Crown Cleaning 

This is the most common tree pruning technique which consists of thinning dead, damaged, and diseased branches from the living canopy of a tree.

Crown Raising

This is the technique of pruning the lowest branches off a tree to create more space for people and vehicles, to improve views under a tree, and to enhance light penetration.

Crown Thinning

The technique of pruning the branches off a tree to create more space for people and vehicles, to improve views under a tree, and to enhance light penetration.

Crown Reduction

The technique of reducing the overall dimensions of a tree. It is most often done by arborists to reduce risk of trunk failure as part of a long term tree pruning maintenance program.

View Pruning 

This technique involves using a combination of any or all of the different methods of tree pruning in order to enhance or create a view through a tree.

Restoration Pruning

This is a process, carried out over a prescribed period of time, of restoring a damaged tree to a natural and strong structure.

Structural Pruning

This pruning technique will train a newly planted tree to grow with a strong, desirable structure. Undertaken early and properly, this will help a young tree develop into a mature tree that requires little (if no) maintenance.
