Tree Pruning

 

  Pruning trees requires an artist’s touch and a scientist's mind. The main objective of pruning is to produce strong, healthy, attractive plants by understanding how, when and why to prune by following a few simple principles. Reasons for pruning certainly include aesthetics, but that's only the beginning. There are also health and safety concerns, as well as stimulating fruit production and increasing the value of the timber.

Pruning For Safety: This involves removing branches that could fall and cause injury or property damage, trimming branches that interfere with lines of sight on streets or driveways, and removing branches that grow into utility lines. Safety pruning can be largely avoided by carefully choosing species that will not grow beyond the space availableto them, and have strength and form characteristics that are suited to the site.                                                                                                                                                                          

Pruning For Health: This involves removing diseased or insect-infested wood, thinning the crown to increase airflow and reduce some pest problems, and removing crossing and rubbing branches. Pruning can best be used to encourage trees to develop a strong structure and reduce the likelihood of damage during severe weather. Removing broken or damaged limbs encourages wound closure.                                                                                                                                                                                               

Pruning For Aesthetics: This involves enhancing the natural form and character of trees or stimulating flower production. Pruning for form can be especially important on open-grown trees that do very little self-pruning.
