Tree Pruning

While pruning a tree it is important to remove branch stubs and branches that are in direct contact. Be careful not to remove the larger branches in the tree unless they currently have disease or are dangerous branches because they will leave behind stubs that can cause many health problems including weak tree branch development.

Tree Pruning Improves Appearance

Pruning improves the trees appearance by promoting its natural form. Pruning controls tree size and shape by keeping the branches and leaves well-proportioned and dense and by removing unwanted, weak or branches with disease.

Tree Pruning Increases Safety

By removing weak, narrow-angled and dead tree branches that overhang homes, driveways and sidewalks you are protecting pedestrians who could be injured by a dangerous tree limb ready to fall. It is also important to remove tree branches that are close to street lights, power lines and wires and other important structures.

When to Prune Trees

The best time to prune your trees is in late winter when the tree is dormant and just before the spring seasons begins. Spring growth will begin the wound sealing process which is necessary after a tree has been pruned. In addition, it is much easier to prune a tree when its leaves are not blocking the tree branch structure.
