Tree Thinning Services

Machinery wood-chipping limbs removed by tree crew during tree thinning services.Frontier’s experienced tree thinning services will keep your trees healthy, lovely, and storm-tolerant by eliminating hazards and maintaining their structure and look. Whether a tree is damaged, ailing, or young, it can thrive with proper trimming and shaping on a routine basis.

Most people have a variety of trees on their property. In order to flourish, these trees may require different methods of thinning. We only will recommend those that will benefit your trees – one tree’s ideal solution can be another’s worst.

Thinning out branches provides important safety benefits as well. One important benefit is the improvement of airflow. This helps make larger trees less hazardous in Pacific Northwest winds. Thinning also diverts trees from the path of utility lines and clears obstructed views for drivers.

After making a thorough evaluation of your property, we will develop a routine Thinning Maintenance Plan. In cases where thinning can’t save a tree due to late intervention, we utilize special techniques and equipment to remove it safely and with minimal disruption.  Check out our FAQs for more information.

Benefits to Tree Thinning Services:

  • Allows for air circulation which stimulates healthy growth.
  • Keeps trees healthy and addresses issues before they become a problem.
  • Assesses tree health in a timely manner.
  • Protects the health of other trees and plantings in your landscape.

Frontier has Specialized Training

Frontier Tree Service crews have the specialized training to cut your trees correctly. We will expertly but selectively combine pruning techniques to remove low limbs and eliminate dead, dying, or diseased portions of trees. We take care to remove the inner crossover branches of the tree canopy but no more than one-third of the crown. Improper thinning methods attract insects and disease. Frontier’s experienced team will ensure years of optimum health and growth performance.
