Why We Prune Trees
Tree pruning is one of the most common procedures of a professional tree company. Tree pruning done by an experience and qualified tree surgeon can enhance a tree’s natural beauty and also promote a tree’s health and longevity. On the other hand, improper pruning practices can cause irreversible damage weakening the plant and shortening the life of a tree.
Each branch that is removed or not removed has the potential to change how a tree grows. With this in mind, a branch should not be removed without a good reason. There are three main reasons to prune a tree:
Safety – Examples include dead wood over a roof or raising a tree’s crown that interferes with a driver’s line of sight.
Tree Health – Examples include the removal of diseased and/or dying limbs, performing a crown reduction to minimise sail effect in high winds. In many cases, the removal or reducing of some branches relieve excessive weight on major limbs.
Aesthetics – Trees in the woods or rural settings usually grow well because they don’t have to contend with our urban environment. Trees in your landscape require considerable attention in order to successfully coexist with buildings, houses, and cars etc. Aesthetic pruning can enhance the natural form and character of your trees and have a positive effect on your entire property.
Proper tree pruning techniques require many years of study both in the classroom and outdoors in the field. Our arborists combine science and artistry to properly prune trees. In summary, correct tree pruning requires the consolation of a professional arborist.
