Arbor Task Tree Service was selected to prune a splendidly large Silver Dollar Eucalyptus tree, (Eucalyptus Polyanthemos). Located in Point Loma, a coastal community of San Diego. This Evergreen Gum tree can attain a mature height of 70 feet with a crown span of 40 feet.The silvery- blue-green foliage is popular in floral arrangements. A crown reduction pruning treatment was prescribed to properly thin and take heavy limbs back. Efforts were made to have a uniform trim pattern. To open up pockets in the canopy by lacing 25 to 30% in order to decrease how much wind energy the tree captures. This is beneficial in preventing limb failiure and preserving the beautiful Speciman. The recommended trimming interval is 36 months.
