SPECIALTY & ORNAMENTAL TREE CARE & MAINTENANCE
Call Elite Tree Service to see why we are the chosen tree service company for ornamental tree pruning Portland, Oregon. Ornamental tree pruning doesn’t create a beautiful tree, it reveals it. We believe that the pruning of ornamental trees such as Japanese Maple, Flowering Cherry, Dogwood, Snowbell or Magnolias reveals the natural beauty of the tree, if done correctly. Although the process is very much the same across the board for many tree types, ornamental trees offer a more satisfying experience.
With the ornamental tree pruning process we want to achieve more natural branching patterns. Guiding the branches in the direction that they intend to grow will allow the tree to prosper. Thinning of broken, dead and constricting branches is how we achieve this. We, at Elite Tree Service, are your go-to team. We want to lower the overall density of the tree and expose more of the trunk so that the tree can increase its photosynthetic process efficiency and consume the necessary nutrients.
As a result of thinning and pruning, ornamental trees can utilize and increase consumption of the nutrients it needs to survive. Wind passing through the branches allows the tree to minimize the possibility of broken limbs due to wind or severe weather. Sunlight can also better penetrate through the trees interior, allowing the lower branches to obtain more sunlight. Having your tree strong and healthy means you get to enjoy the beauty of it for many years.
As residential and commercial property owners, having a beautiful landscape is a priority and that includes the pruning of ornamental trees. Japanese Maples, Magnolias and other ornamental trees can complement many landscape designs and having it well-maintained will only increase the curb appeal. Make a statement and set your property apart from your neighbors with a well-trimmed tree. You'll love the look and it will always look better than one that is unkept, scraggly and lopsided.
You can do this work yourself but it's best to have the knowledge of the tree species and how it grows before attempting it. Not having a professional complete these projects can mean losing part or all of a tree that has grown slowly over many years. Shaping of ornamental trees takes years of careful care in cases such as a Lace leaf or Japanese Maple. The location of the tree is a large factor affecting how the tree can and should be pruned. For the DIY. home and business owner here are some tips so you can execute a quality trimming. Safety first, wear eye protection and use sharpened quality tools. Mashing or damaging the areas where cuts are made make trees look bad and can have consequences for the tree. Work inside out and bottom to top. You begin by removing all of the small inside branches working your way to larger ones if you feel the need. Go around the tree twice to make sure you trimmed the tree evenly.
A healthy tree consumes more nutrients due to the increase of light and wind traveling over their branches. By thinning and pruning you give the tree a better chance of survival. Ornamental tree trimming is an excellent way to promote a strong, healthy and beautiful tree.
