Storms can be devastating for a region’s tree population. One storm is enough to take down many trees and require even more to be removed during the aftermath. However, while some trees are too damaged to be saved, there are others who can fully recover after a careful trimming.

How does crown restoration work?

The Tree Pruning in San Jose is done by removing and cutting back the damaged branches, the remaining branches will receive more nutrients which will allow them to grow sturdier. Additionally, hazard like hangers will also be removed which significantly reduces the risk of limb failure. With exposed branches being reduced, balance will be reintroduced to the crown which makes for a healthy tree with great chances of an extended life.

Additionally, a properly thinned crown will reduce the chances of ice accretion and reduce the impact of wind-sail due to the significantly lowered wind resistance the crown can now pose. It should also be noted that, even after the tree has recovered, pruning should be made into a yearly routine in order to limit the growth of suckers and maintain a structurally sturdy tree.
