All About Proper Tree Pruning
Tree pruning is something that should be performed on every tree on a seasonal basis. There are so many reasons for this and 100% are completely advantageous. They provide aesthetic, health and structural benefits. Did we mention the financial benefits for your property of having healthy, beautiful trees in your landscape?
Pruning is a very delicate art. This is because every cut could change the direction of how the tree actually grows. No branch should just be removed for any reason. The most common reasons for tree pruning are to remove dead, diseased, or broken branches. However, they may also be pruned in order to provide better air and light penetration.
While most tree pruning can be accomplished at any time during the year with little negative effect to the tree, it’s usually best to start trimming before the spring growth wave. There are plenty of tree diseases out there, so it’s usually best to avoid making cuts when pests are at their most active. You don’t want them residing inside a tree’s wounds and causing further problems in the future.
Proper pruning is essential to developing the structure of any tree, especially young ones. What limbs you decide to cut and when determine exactly how it will grow. Trees that receive the proper pruning when they’re younger are far less likely to require corrective pruning in the future.
