Tree Pruning Services in Dallas
TreeTech provides expert tree pruning services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Landscape trees require a high level of care to maintain their structural integrity and aesthetics. When a tree is properly trimmed and maintained, it will stay healthier, grow better, reduce possible breakage during high winds or storms, and improve the overall look of your landscape.
Specific types of pruning techniques are necessary to maintain proper structures young trees, improve shape or form in mature trees, reducing the likelihood of future damage during storms, and remove limbs. These include cleaning, thinning, raising, and reduction.
Let Your Trees Flourish
The removal of dead, dying, diseased, or weakly attached branches from the crown of a tree.
The removal of specific branches that will improve the structure and increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. This also reduces weight on heavy limbs and helps retain the tree’s natural shape.
The removal of lower branches from a tree to provide clearance for pedestrians, vehicles, and buildings.
The reduction in the size of a tree, by height or spread, often for utility line clearance or new construction.
When Should Trees be Pruned?
Tree pruning and the removal of branches should not be done without reason. Heavy pruning and the removal of foliage can place significant stress on the tree itself, causing reduced growth and loss of energy reserves. Each cut has the potential to change the growth of the tree and many outside factors must be considered before pruning. Our Certified Arborists will work with you to develop a plan and determine the type and scale of pruning necessary to improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees.
Pruning should be considered for your trees when the branches:
- Are diseased or insect-infected
- Have been damaged by storms
- Are dying or dead
- Are hazardous to the surrounding structures
- Obstruct streets or sidewalks
- Interfere with utilities or structures
- Pose unacceptable risks
- Will reduce wind resistance within the tree once removed

TreeTech strives to maximize the safety and health of our clients’ trees through science, technical expertise, and years of practice. Because trees are living biological organisms, they are each unique. So too are the properties where they grow and live. Having a professional management company that inspects trees for specific pruning tasks for specific site conditions is essential for professional tree management.
TreeTech begins the professional pruning with the initial site visit by our ISA Certified Arborists. Our qualified arborists will assess both your trees’ conditions and the site to make the most appropriate management recommendations we can. We will then use your goals and management needs to tailor a proposal that is right for you, your tree, and your property.
Pruning maintenance may include various arboricultural techniques such as Canopy Thinning, in order to reduce the overall weight and wind resistance of tree canopies; Canopy Raising, for the purpose of providing additional clearance over the property or transportation corridors; Canopy Reduction, in order to reduce end-limb weight to reduce the risk of branch failure, or to balance uneven canopies, or to provide clearance away from buildings and other structures; and finally Crown Cleaning to remove deadwood to reduce risk of fungal infections and to improve both safety and aesthetics.
Structural pruning is another very important pruning goal, especially important for younger trees (planted within the last 5-10 years). This process is used to encourage a more stable tree structure, or crown architecture, by reducing competition from codominant or multiple main trunks as well as other aggressively growing lateral branches in order to improve the overall safety and stability of trees. It is often necessary to perform structural pruning over a 3-5 year period depending on species, current structural condition, and other health related concerns.
