Tree Pruning for Restoration and Shape
For these reasons, tree pruning and trimming can be looked at as equal parts science and art. A company that specializes in restorative pruning and restorative trimming is able to take the science of tree care – knowing where, when and how to prune or trim branches in ways that promote the tree’s health – with the art of making sure the tree retains its natural appearance.
Too often, homeowners will try to do restorative pruning themselves, but without the proper knowledge or expertise, it is easy to actually damage the tree while trying to remove branches or thin foliage.
An arborist or tree care specialist should be consulted anytime a property owner is considering pruning or trimming for the purpose of eliminating structural weaknesses or interference with other trees or buildings.
