Mature Tree Preservation
In a forest, trees grow together in close groups and compete for space. They form single trunks and strong central leaders. In the landscape, they develop broad canopies and lose the protection of their partners which buffer high winds. To preserve mature trees Greene’s Tree & Garden will prune dead wood, remove crossing branches and preserve a central leader or stem. Thinning the crown of a tree may be necessary to increase light and air penetration and to reduce branches for structural purposes or to combat co-dominance. Finally, if a tree that has major structural defects is to be saved, Greene’s Tree & Garden will install cables and/or bracing rods for support.
