What are the different classes of tree pruning?

CLASS I/FINE PRUNING – Fine pruning shall consist of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, decayed, interfering, objectionable, obstructing, and weak branches, as well as selective thinning to lessen wind resistance. The removal of such described branches is to include those on the main trunks, as well as those inside the leaf area. An occasional undesirable branch, up to ½” in diameter, as described above, may remain within the leaf area to its fullest length when it is not practical to remove it.


CLASS II/STANDARD PRUNING – Standard pruning is recommended where aesthetic considerations are secondary to structural integrity and tree health concerns. Standard pruning shall consist of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, decayed, interfering, objectionable, obstructing, and weak branches, as well as selective thinning to lessen wind resistance. The removal of such described branches is to include those on the main trunks, as well as those inside the leaf area. An occasional undesirable branch, up to 1” in diameter, as described above, may remain within the leaf area to its fullest length when it is not practical to remove it.


CLASS III/HAZARD PRUNING – Hazard pruning is recommended where safety considerations are paramount. Hazard pruning shall consist of dead, dying, diseased, decaying and obviously weak branches 2” or greater in diameter.


CLASS IV/CROWN REDUCTION PRUNING – Crown reduction shall consist or the reduction of tops, sides, or individual limbs no more than ¼ per operation. The terms “cutting back” and “drop crotch pruning” are sometimes used interchangeably with generally unacceptable arboricultural practices. The correct technique for crown reduction involves the removal of a parent limb or dominant leader at the point of attachment to lateral branch. This practice is to be undertaken only for the following reasons:

A.         In situations where branches interfere with utility lines.

B.         When there has been significant crown dieback.

C.         When it is necessary to achieve specific topiary training or dwarfing.

D.         In cases where due to storm damage or prior incorrect pruning, it is appropriate to prune for safety and aesthetic reasons
