Thinning: Thinning happens when certain branches are removed to increase light penetration and reduce weight on limbs. Thinning can also help maintain tree’s natural shape.
Cleaning is the removal of dead or dying branches from the crown of a tree.
When you prune a tree for raising, you are removing lower tree branches to give the tree clearance for vehicles, buildings or pedestrians.
Reduction is a pruning technique that reduces the size of the tree.
Why do Trees Need to be Pruned?
Pruning trees ensures that trees continue to grow properly while maintaining their structural integrality and attractiveness. Trees are usually trimmed to eliminate hazards or improve the health of the landscape below.
Mature trees are usually only pruned as a corrective or preventative safety measure rather than for health.
Young trees need to be pruned in order to develop its structure and desired shape. Trees that that are properly treated when they are young will require less corrective pruning as they mature, saving you more expense in the future.
Why Can’t I Prune my Own Trees?
Pruning should only be done by experts who understand the unique biology of trees who have a deep understanding of how each species of tree will respond to being cut. Improper pruning techniques can lead to permanent damage or even shorten the tree’s life.
Trying to prune older trees can also be extremely dangerous depending on the size and age of the tree. Older trees are larger, and therefore potentially cause property damage or injury. Mature trees also have a harder time recovering from pruning, meaning improper cuts could cause wounds the tree may never recover from.
Pruning mature trees should be left to the professionals.
