The Effective Way To Prune Your Trees

Effective Way To Prune Your Trees

Keeping your trees well pruned is important to their health and the value of your property. It also reduces fire hazards and allows for the proper air circulation. In addition, it makes your trees more beautiful. By following a few simple steps, you can ensure that your trees are healthy and strong.

The steps to effective pruning is removing dead or diseased branches

These should be cut with a sharp tool. Make sure your cutting tools are cleaned and disinfected. This will help prevent infection and improve wound healing.

Next, check to see if your tree has a “collar.” This is the raised area where the trunk and branch connect. If your tree does not have a collar, you may need to prune it. Your branches will be stronger and more resistant to pathological infections if they have this protective covering.

When trimming, look at your trees from several different angles

A good approach is to cut at a 45-degree angle from the base of the tree. This helps stimulate a quick healing response, and promotes the development of a callus.

Then, carefully trim away the damaged or infected branches. Be sure to make the cuts in the correct locations. You should never remove more than 5% to 20% of a tree’s crown. That way, you will not damage the structure of the tree.

Once you’ve identified the branches that need to be removed, take care to choose a method that will keep your trees healthy and attractive. While you’re at it, consider thinning the crown of the tree, as this will increase sunlight penetration and reduce stress on selected limbs.

Avoid heading cuts which remove a branch at random

Heading cuts leave a large hole that can become a hazard. If a tree is heavily top-heavy, it can become unpredictable in stormy weather. Additionally, heading cuts leave the tree open to pests.

Lastly, use a clean pair of pruners and use a sharp blade. Avoid using loppers, which are too blunt to prune branches of 3-inch diameter or larger. Instead, use a saw with a pruning blade that is the correct size for your particular tree.

Pruning your trees can be a lot of fun, but you need to make sure that you’re doing it correctly. If you do, your trees will stay healthy and attractive, and you’ll enjoy the benefits of your hard work. To learn more about how to prune your and tree removal, check out TruCo Services.

If you’re new to pruning, start with small trees. You can always prune more later on, but you’ll want to wait until the end of the growing season to do so.
