Tree Pruning is a Must

Tree Pruning is a Must for Your Landscape. Here is Why

Many people think that pruning is nothing more than just removing dead limbs to have your tree grow new healthier branches. Tree trimming and pruning provide several benefits to the look, health and safety of the trees in your landscape. Here, we will show you some of them.

First of all, there’s the safety side of working on your trees. Hanging limbs can fall and cause damage or injury. It’s best to timely identify deceased or dead limbs and remove them as soon as possible.

Pruning is also important for a tree’s health. Damages and deceased branches are just extra weight on a tree and they should be removed. Also, inward-growing and crossing branches are a  risk, too. As crossing branches move in the wind, they can be damaged by the friction and eventually break.

Another thing that tree removal professionals look for are water sprouts and suckers. Suckers are small trees that grow at the base of the tree trunk and water sprouts are small limbs that grow vertically from the dominant branches. Both of them should be removed as they take nutrients away from the tree.

When it comes to the look of your landscape, pruning can direct growth in ways we want and help developing a strong branching structure. It also helps your tree produce more fruit and flowers for an improved and healthy look.

When is Best to Prune Your Trees?

  • For trees that bloom in spring, prune when their flowers fade.
  • Trees and shrubs that flower in mid- to late summer should be pruned in winter or early spring.
