Selective Trimming

Selective Trimming from Omni Tree Service, Inc.

The removal of crossover and overcrowding of limbs. Selective trimming allows for healthy future growth and enhances the tree’s branch structure. Over thinning or lion-tailing is very dangerous, especially in pin oaks. Selection trimming should only be down by a trained professional. One such example of selective trimming, collar cuts, allows us to remove larger limbs and still keep the tree’s integrity. Doing a collar cut prevents the cut limb from peeling, as opposed to flush cuts which damage trunk wood and expose the trunk to disease and decay.
