At Maier Tree & Lawn, we know that tree pruning is essential for long-term maintenance of your landscape in Rochester, MN. Pruning, when done correctly, can greatly enhance the health, beauty, and safety of your trees. However, when done improperly, the life of your tree may be jeopardized.

Tree pruning is the art and science of limb removal. Each cut made by the certified arborists of Maier Tree & Lawn serves a specific purpose. Otherwise, the limbs should be left alone so the full beauty of the trees can be preserved. Pruning is used to reduce risks, encourage strong form, clear space around important structures, and to remove the 4 D’s; dead, dying, damaged and diseased limbs.

Only certified arborists following proper pruning practices should prune your trees. Certified arborists, like those employed by Maier Tree & Lawn, are familiar with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) tree care and safety standards (A300 and Z133.1). The most common pruning that we practice on trees includes:

Cleaning - Selective pruning to remove one or more of the following parts: dead, diseased, and/or broken branches.

Raising - Selective pruning to provide vertical clearance.

Reducing - Selective pruning to decrease height and/or spread (consideration must be given to the ability of a species to tolerate this type of pruning).

Structural Pruning- Selective pruning to improve tree and branch structure primarily on young and medium-aged trees.

Don’t leave the fate of your landscape in the hands of amateurs. Trust the professionals at Maier Tree & Lawn to ensure your yard is clean, safe, and professionally cared for. We offer our tree and lawn services in Rochester, Winona, and all over Southeast Minnesota.
