Tree Trimming

Trimming
  1. The Set-up

  1. Firstly, ensure you are optimally trained in equipment usage. Different jurisdictions may have different regulations on the type of training that is required to both cut and trim trees.Trimming

  2. If in case you are using an aerial bucket truck or the other boomed vehicle the operators need to be both skilled and trained in the safe operation of the vehicles mentioned above to ensure the safety of the operation.

  3. Make sure that before you trim a tree, there is a thorough inspection of the area to identify any possible hazards such as the presence of power lines, cracked or broken limbs, etc. You need to take the necessary steps to prevent any unexpected injuries or accidents.

  4. In case of any power lines being energized or “live” make sure you avoid both indirect or direct contact with the power line until either the utility or the hydro company has verified that they have de-energized the line.

  5. Make it a point to mark off an area around the tree and prevent bystander access. Also, ensure you always work with another person who stays put on the ground.

  6. Learning to recognize trees that are weakened by disease and even the types of trees easily prone to cracking are essential lessons in tree trimming.

  7. Inspect the tree limbs for its strength before you climb the bark and branches to trim. Make sure you check for any cavities or rotten bits of branches to ensure you don’t suffer any last-minute crisis or severe injury while getting the operation started.

  8. Also, Inspect the fall protection equipment and lines before every time that they are used. Tag and remove any defective or damaged equipment from service until it can either be replaced or repaired depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations.

  9. Lastly, If you are using a ladder make sure to tie it off on a safe and secure branch.

  1. The Operation

  1. Start off with breaking small and dead branches off using your bare hands as you climb. Later, remove all the larger branches using the proper tools in your toolbox.

  2. Then place both your hands and feet on separate limbs and move with just one hand or foot at a time.

  3. Either raise or lower the tools by connecting the hand lines to the end of tools.

    The tools that are attached at the center may catch on branches. Tools that are smaller may be raised and lowered in a bucket attached to a hand line.

  4. Utilize non-conductive tools and personal protective equipment if you are surrounded by electrical power lines in your area of work.

  5. Ensure that you can view the cut that you are making so that you do not cut hand lines and safety ropes etc. without intending to.

  6. Then attach a fiber or a leather guard on the saws that are held by a ring present on a worker’s belt.

  7. Lastly, the series of OSH Answers present on chainsaws present safety information concerning their proper use and operation.

Types of Pruning

Pruning

Here are a few types of pruning that will help you in saving your tree’s lives:

  1. Crown Lifting-

Crown lifting is a pruning technique that involves removal of the lower branches in the crown. It is often done to provide clearance in roads or over paths for instance, or sometimes to allow more light to pass under the crown. It often has limited impact on the amenity of a tree due to the fact it does not change the more prominent higher parts of the crown. The lower branches, on the other hand, tend to be bigger, so the wounds are more extensive and have an unfavorable effect on the tree’s life. You should always avoid leaving a clear stem that is more than one-third of the tree’s height. Lower branches have a crucial role to play in dampening the sway of a tree in the high winds.

Pruning

  1. Crown Thinning-

It involves the selective removal of branches surrounding the crown, such that the overall shape of the crown will not change. It increases the light penetration and also the air circulation surrounding the crown. It is essential to work on the crown, also focusing on removing small diameter branches, including its outer edges. Removal of many branches from the center of the crown will result in a tree with poor posture with a few points that are pruned back to in the future. Crown thinning can likewise occur in long, thin branches that have little foliage in their lower parts to hose influencing, putting additional weight on the tree in high winds.

  1. Crown reduction-

It is the reduction in overall size of the crown by shortening branches, and also cutting back to a suitable growth point. Mainly used where a tree has outgrown where it stands. It often results in significant injuries at the branch ends, and also may start to decay. Crown reduction should always be seen as a last resort. While performing crown reduction, the branches should be reduced to suitable side branches and also a flowing branch line maintained, that reflects the natural shape of the tree. A poorly performed crown reduction is known as a topping and is an awful practice.

  1. Pollarding-

Often misused by everyone in pruning is pollarding trees. Pollarding is a maintenance regime, begun when a tree is young at age and repeated at constant intervals throughout the tree’s life. All the branches of the tree are removed back to the secondary branches off the main stem. The Regrowth since the last pollard is then withdrawn back to the ‘knuckles’ at regular time periods. Branches removed are all of small in diameter. It is a management technique traditionally used on the willows to provide a constant supply of small diameter poles, similar to coppicing hazel but above ground, out of reach of grazing livestock.

Consider consulting with a local tree service company if you have any questions about tree pruning.
