Tree Pruning is a horticultural practice that is performed in order to change the form and growth of a plant and is completed for any number of reasons including;
- Reducing the height and reach of a tree
- Removing diseased portions of the plant or tree
- Removing storm-damaged and potentially dangerous branches
- Removing obstructing lower branches
Large pruning jobs that involve removing branches from large trees, for instance should always be completed by a tree care specialist. One should never risk the personal safety of themselves or others for the sake of pruning a tree.
A Professional arborist’s job is to keep a tree healthy and attractive by providing proper care. Proper pruning can encourage growth, improve plant health, repair damage and help add aesthetic appeal to a tree while ensuring the safety of nearby people and structures.
