There are four basic pruning methods recognized as industry standards:

1. Clean: Selective pruning to remove one or more of the following parts: dead, diseased, and/or broken branches.

2. Thin: Selective pruning to reduce density of live branches

3. Raise: Selective pruning to provide vertical clearance.

4. Reduce: Selective pruning to decrease height and/or spread (consideration must be given to the ability of a particular tree species to tolerate reduction pruning).

Pruning methods that may injure trees and should be avoided:

1. Topping: The reduction of a tree’s size using heading cuts that shorten limbs or branches back to a predetermined crown limit

2. Lion’s Tailing: The removal of an excessive number of inner, lateral branches from parent branches

3. Rooster-Tailing: The over-thinning of palm trees
