Cleveland Heights Tree CompanyCleveland Heights Tree Company tips: When a tree seems like it is too tall or when it starts to inch toward the power lines at your Cleveland Heights home, for example, there are more options than resorting to tree removal. There are safe and effective ways to go about limiting the height of your tree… with the help of professionals for safety reasons and for the health of your tree.

In general, the best way to avoid having to keep your tree’s height in check is to pick the right spot for your tree. Review the spot and around the surrounding environment to make sure that there will be enough room for when our tree does grow big and strong.

Cleveland Heights Tree Pruning – to keep it short

Both younger trees and mature trees can be kept to a certain height through pruning, the earlier you start this process the better. Pruning to reduce height will require regular pruning sessions over time. As a tree grows into old age, pruning will not be as ideal of an option as your tree will not have enough energy to recover from a lot of pruning.

Avoid chopping off the top, the canopy, of the tree to keep it small. The limbs will still be able to grow back, but they will be very weak upon their regrowth.

If you have an oak or cherry tree, make sure to check with an arborist to plan the best time to prune. These trees have more specific timelines for pruning to keep them at their best.

Best Practices for Limiting Tree Height

While we cannot prevent a tree from growing taller, there are ways to limit its height. It is important to contact a tree service professional for these types of projects — there is a lot to take into consideration. Make sure to keep removal to less than a fourth of the tree’s canopy, otherwise the tree may not survive. It is also important to factor in the tree’s structure for proper drop crotch pruning and crown reduction.
