There are two types of tree pruning: Crown Maintenance and Crown modification. Specific types of pruning may be necessary to maintain a mature tree in a healthy, safe, and attractive condition.

  • Crown Maintenance includes Deadwooding, Crown Thinning, Selective Pruning, Formative Pruning, Cleaning
  • Crown Modification includes Reduction Pruning, Crown Lifting, Pollarding, Remedial (corrective) Pruning and Line Clearance.

Cleaning is the removal of dead, dying, diseased, crowded, weakly attached, and low-vigor branches from the crown of a tree.

Thinning is the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. Thinning opens the foliage of a tree, reduces weight on heavy limbs, and helps retain the tree’s natural shape.

Raising removes the lower branches from a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, and vistas.

Reduction reduces the size of a tree, often for clearance of utility lines. Reducing the height or spread of a tree is best accomplished by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to lateral branches that are large enough to assume the terminal


Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. An arborist can help decide whether or not a tree should be removed. Professionally trained arborists have the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees. Removal is recommended when a tree:

  • is dead, dying, or considered irreparably hazardous
  • is causing an obstruction or is crowding and causing harm to other trees and the situation is impossible to correct through pruning
  • is to be replaced by a more suitable specimen
  • should be removed to allow for construction


Removal of old fronds and fruit. Avoiding the removal of healthy fronds is essential as it may place the palm under stress and encourage more vigorous growth.


Deadwood/stubs removal, reduction/removal of diseased, dying, deformed branches. Aces Tree and Garden Service prefers to perform a routine General Tidy with all forms of pruning.


The Australian Standard defines Lopping and Topping, Wound Painting and Flush Cutting as unacceptable practices. Please see our section on PRUNING for information on best practice.
