Tree pruning is an arborist practice that involves selectively removing specific parts of the tree structure. Such could be tree branches, limbs or even foliage. The primary purpose of pruning trees is to enhance the overall health and aesthetics of evergreen or deciduous trees. By carefully trimming away the dead and diseased branches, pruning can improve air circulation within the tree, as well as reduce the risk of disease and pest infestation.
Tree pruning is also often used to shape trees for aesthetic purposes, ensuring they fit harmoniously within their surroundings. By employing proper techniques and considering the tree's specific species and growth patterns, pruning can play a vital role in maintaining the vitality, structural integrity, safety and beauty of trees.
Pruning encourages new growth and rejuvenation as removing dead or dying branches, allows the tree to allocate resources more efficiently to healthier parts, which is especially noticeable in fruit trees and flowering trees.
It is crucial to choose trusted tree surgeons to provide proper tree pruning services using professional equipment. Improper pruning practices, like damaging the branch collar, removing too many branches or trimming branches that are too big, can lead to disease entering the tree through wounds left behind. It can also reduce the overall vitality of a tree due to the excessive volume of leaf bearing material being removed.
