How The Tree Professionals Prune

As your professional tree specialists in Ottawa, you can expect VS Tree Services to provide nothing short of the best pruning in the industry. Each of our arborists has years of experience maintaining the health and appearance of trees.

Our treatments include the following:


Cleaning is the removal of dead, dying, weak and diseased branches to prevent rot in growing and mature trees.


Thinning is the strategic removal of branches to enhance shape, remove unnecessary weight, allow light penetration, and increase airflow.


Raising is removal of any lower branches that are barriers for cars, people, buildings, etc.


Reduction decreases tree size and is often needed in cities, especially for utility line clearance. We trim back the tree while preserving its form and structural integrity.

Tree Pruning Services

Pruning is one of the most common and crucial practices for keeping Ottawa's trees, shrubs, and hedges aesthetically pleasing, healthy, and safe.

Pruning consists of several treatments. The first is cleaning and thinning which, beyond improving overall appearance, is necessary for preserving the health of the tree.

The other treatments are raising and reducing. These may be necessary for eliminating barriers, maintaining pedestrian safety, and achieving utility line clearance. Pruning can be done during any stage of the tree’s life cycle from newly planted saplings to mature trees.

If your trees, shrubs, or hedges are beginning to look a little worse for wear, or if you want to get ahead of your summer tree pruning maintenance tasks, now is the time to get in contact with VS Tree Service!
