5 Tree Surgery Techniques

Ever heard of a tree surgeon? They are the trained people found up high on trees, pruning them back to life. Here are a few of the techniques they practice to make sure that trees are kept healthy and looking beautiful.

1.Tree Pruning

Pruning is the way an experienced aborist prunes a tree. He/she uses special methods to avoid putting the tree at any kind of risk, particularly the scattering of decay. One method of example, would be to steer clear of cutting the tree at its branch collar because that can spread decay into other areas of the tree. Simply by cutting just over the collar, decay is limited, and a callus can develop over the wound. The same principle applies to the branch bark ridge. Cutting on these parts could lead to a disease infected tree. A tree can in fact die from bad pruning, so it is essential that tree surgeons are cautious.

2. Felling and Lowering

Whenever building development gets in the way of the encircling trees, surgeons tend to be asked to take them down or at least manipulate them in a way where they are not in harms ways. What is important to remember in these cases is to control the tree. Methods of lowering include, tipp roping, butt roping, and cradling.

3. Tree Thinning

Just like a big pile of human hair, trees need to be thinned every so often. An aborist can tell how much trimming needs to be done, for the required foliage to come out. Otherwise this could be evaluated by a third-party expert down to the actual percentage. Once the amount of thinning is determined, the aborist should start removing secondary and even primary branches as well as young new growth. The end result is a tree which allows natural light to move through.

4. Removal

Tree Surgeons usually have to cope with fallen, or dead trees. The may need to felled because of distance to a house, or because they’re dead and present a falling risk. Once felled, they have to be cut into manageable sizes. Only then can the roots and stump be eliminated, which can require stump grinding, a lot of digging, or the use of chemicals.

5. Reduction

It is consistently accomplished for tall growing plants that happen to be placed directly under utility lines or electric cords. It needs to be done regularly reduce that height or spread of branches in order to avoid obstruction and untoward incidents. Cutting back specifically branches which are terminal to lateral ones big enough to imagine the later role does it.
