Proper trimming and pruning of trees and shrubs can enhance plant function and performance in the landscape as well as increase structural strength and lessen risk of failure. Stein Tree Service has been providing trimming and pruning services since 1983.
Our ISA Board Certified Master Arborists are experienced at identifying areas of need and the proper technique required to trim and prune trees and shrubs to achieve the desired effect while maintaining plant health and safety.
Trimming & pruning are two of the most valuable procedures an arborist performs; likewise, it can be harmful to a plant if done incorrectly or in an untimely manner. Stein Tree Service’s local tree care professionals are familiar with local conditions and will take exceptional care of your trees.

Methods of Trimming & Pruning
- Crown cleaning – removal of dead, diseased and/or broken tree or shrub parts. Also known as “Deadwooding.”
- Crown thinning – selective removal of live plant parts decreasing density in the canopy to increase sunlight penetration or air movement within the crown and to adjacent lawns and landscape plants.
- Reduction pruning – removal or shortening of live plant parts to reduce the overall size of a tree or shrub, increase sunlight penetration or minimize inference with adjacent structures or other plants.
- Structural pruning – removal of live plant parts to improve branching orientation, spacing, or growth rate.
- Crown raising – removal of live or dead plant parts, generally in the lower part of a tree, to improve a view or improve overhead clearance for buildings, vehicles, equipment or pedestrians.
- Restoration pruning – removal of live or dead plant parts to restore a tree or shrub to its natural growth habit or vigor or to minimize health and structural integrity issues caused by storm damage.
