Pruning Standards

Are you considering having your trees pruned and wondering who to call? In addition to being TCIA (Tree Care Industry Association) accredited, Bartlett Certified Arborists follow the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for tree pruning and safety.

These standards cover types of pruning based on specific goals such as crown cleaning, thinning, reduction and vista pruning. The standards recommend how much foliage one should remove in a session, from where on the tree to remove it and other correct practices.

Any pruning cut is a wound and mature trees do not respond as well to wounding as younger trees. A good arborist knows why and how to execute these wounds to protect the tree’s biological processes and structural integrity. Trees are complex, living organisms. A beautiful tree is a healthy tree; one that’s retained its dignity by respectful treatment based on informed practice.
