The ornamental trees in Portland, OR, like anywhere else, grow and develop to make the best use of the sunlight they receive. Depending on where in the landscape ornamental trees are planted this can sometimes cause them to grow unevenly. Although this doesn’t affect the health of the tree it can cause the ornamental tree to become unsightly and out of shape. Randomly cutting back long branches is not the correct approach to trimming ornamental trees and could make maintenance of the tree more costly in the future. If pruning cuts are made at random locations on the tree branch the tree will respond by growing three, four, or five quickly growing sprouts for each pruning cut that is made. The result is that the ornamental tree will be back out of shape and the next round of pruning will involve 3 to 5 times more tree branches that will need to be cut.

Quality tree services in Portland can improve the shape of ornamental landscape trees with crown reduction pruning. With crown reduction tree pruning the arborist cuts back longer tree branches to appropriately-sized lateral branches that will become the new terminal growth points for the branch. The advantage of this type of ornamental tree trimming is that the tree will retain a more natural shape without the prolific resprouting that occurs when random tree pruning cuts are made.

Tree services in Portland shape ornamental trees to:

  • Train an ornamental tree
  • Improve the looks of an ornamental tree
  • Restrict the height or width of an ornamental tree
  • Clear ornamental trees from sidewalks or a driveway
  • Prune back tree branches that are rubbing against a house
