Sometimes a tree just has to be removed. It might be a safety issue or the need to clear space for construction, a landscaping project, or to get more sun on your yard or pool. Whatever the case might be, the professionals at B.G Construction Co. will assess the situation and choose the most efficient method depending upon the location of the tree as well as its condition and size.
While nature usually does a very nice job on its own, sometimes it just needs a little help to get things just right. Such is the case with trees. Left on their own, limbs can grow too close to a structure or the tree can grow too high or thick, cutting off more sun light than desired.
Ideally, tree pruning should be done on young trees to encourage healthy, strong growth. Of course, that's not always practical and that's why we use different methods to prune trees. The first step for the professionals at B.G Construction Co. is a free inspection of your trees.
We'll advise you of the best pruning method and an honest assessment of the results you can expect. Some methods of pruning we many use include:
Elevating: Some trees have branches that are simply too low to the ground. Removing bottom branches provides clearance for walkways, lawn mowing, and provides more light for grass and shrubs.
Thinning: While shade can be terrific on a hot summer day, sometimes a tree can block too much light. Perhaps you have a pool and want more sunlight on it. We'll trim it properly to give you the light you want while still keeping the tree healthy. Thinning also allows wind to blow through the tree instead of snapping branches or toppling the tree.
Pruning: Pruning keeps your trees healthy and vibrant. How much to prune and what method will be determined by our experts once an assessment can be made for your individual property.
Crown reduction: If a tree has grown too large for its permitted space, crown reduction pruning, may be a viable alternative to removal. When done properly, it lowers the overall height. This approach is best for ornamental trees such as plum, dogwoods, cherry and pear trees which may have been planted too close to a house.
Topping: Tree topping, like crown reduction dramatically reduces the height of the tree but can cause quite a bit of stress to the tree (This should be a method of last resort). In some cases we may recommend removing the tree and replacing it with a younger tree.
Regardless of the type of pruning we use, the health of the tree is important. And in that regard, we will never use a method of climbing called spiking. Spiking entails the use of metal spikes to climb the tree and reach the areas that require pruning.
The result is damage to the tree that over time can allow insects or disease to weaken and kill the tree. The only instance BG Construction Co.
