B.K Tree Service wants to exceed your Expectations, We have Educated employees, A Graduate from Fleming College in 2009, in the Aboricuture Program with over 10 years experience. We have up-to-date equipment getting jobs done efficiently and safely. We specialize in helping clients increase the value and beauty of their homes by properly maintaining their Trees and Shrubs. Serving Bancoft, Kawartha Lakes, North Kawartha, Apsley, Woodview, Burleigh Falls, Young’s Point, Coe Hill, Haliburton, Harcourt, and surrounding area.
Since each cut has the potential to change the growth of a tree, no branch should be removed without a reason. Common reasons for pruning are to remove dead branches, to remove crowded or crossing limbs, to eliminate hazards, and to slow growth by removing foliage. Trees may also be Trimmed to reduce wind resistance or to increase light penetration.
Your satisfaction is our priority and we strive to provide a service we are proud of. We start every project by providing a thorough consultation to understand your goals and the needs of the project. We do this to guarantee that the project is completed according to your preferences. Once the job is completed, we ensure your yard is spotless leaving it just as clean or cleaner than when we arrived.
We offer a wide selection of pruning.
Crown reduction is often the most difficult type to perform. The arborist is often working in an awkward position and attempted to visualize what the end product should look like. This type of prunning should be avoided when ever possible as it usually creates a long-term root an stem problems for the tree. The best solution is often to remove the tree and replace it with a new smaller type tree. As the title implies crown reduction refers to pruning done in the upper crown of a tree.
This procedure is used when performing side and under pruning, but especially crown pruning. Drop crotch pruning is used to retain the trees natural shape while performing fewer but larger pruning cuts. Less pruner work and man hours are required when this technique is employed
Drop crotch prunning maybe used to great advantage in gaining at adequate clearance on trees growing directly under utility conductors
Lifting the crown, elevating, raiding the canopy, and lift pruning: all these terms refer to the removal of lower branches from the trunk or lower limbs of the tree. Lower branches may block pedestrians and vehicle traffic, may obstruct a view, may grow too close to buildings or may eliminate sunlight. Crowns may also be elevated to increase air movement for disease control.
Cleaning out or “dead wooding” consist primarily of removing broken, diseased or dead limbs, those that cross, are weakly attached or of low vigour. Water sprouts and suckers (epicormic shoots) could be quite a problem on some species and on trees that have been severely pruned; they should be cut as close to the base as possible in order to reduce the possibility of renewed growth.
Opening up the top of the tree permits deeper light penetration, which benefits inner leaves and branches. Moderate to high light intenacity is necessary for active and productive leaves. If branches arise close along with trunk they, will grow long and slender with few laterals and increase the taper of the remaining branches. Thinning out some of these branches will give the remaining ones more room, help initiate new laterals and increase the taper of remaining branches.
Structural pruning principles are use when pruning young trees or a tree that has not been pruned in many years. Properly trained young trees will develop into structurally strong trees that should require a little corrective pruning as they mature. It’s also the most cost-efficient time to prune.
Pruning influences the number, size and quality of flowers and fruit. Dormant pruning of trees such as apples, which produce fruits on one-year-old wood, reduces the number of flowers and fruit but those remaining grow larger. Thinning of these trees designed to increase light penetration to the inner crown will increase bud and flower formation the following year. Fruit tree prunning also improves tree structure and it’s ability to support weight of fruit.
Vista Pruning provides yards with a view while maintaining privacy. This method of pruning can be done in two ways – crown reduction and thinning. Crown reduction actually reduces the size of a tree by removing top branches to a “crotch” point, or a spot where the branch meets another laterally.
