Why Pruning Trees Is Important

Trees Well Pruned Is Important

Pruning is an important step in maintaining the appearance and overall health of trees. It is best to prune your tree at the proper time of year and to choose a method that will not affect the tree’s growth or development. Proper pruning will increase the tree’s resilience to harsh weather conditions, strengthen the tree’s roots and protect the tree’s main branches.

When you prune your tree, you’re removing dead, broken and diseased branches. Dead branches are a safety hazard that can fall and damage structures and people. To remove a dead branch safely, cut it at the base of the trunk, just below the bark. If you have a tree that’s close to power lines, always use a fork to make the cuts.

You should also be careful about trimming a tree near a street sign. If you have trees near a sidewalk, you should remove any stray branches that can hang over the sidewalk. The branches can become tangled in the wiring or obstruct a view for passing motorists.

Another reason to keep a tree well-pruned is the possibility of insect infestation. Some insects are drawn to the sap excreted by a tree. These parasites can be harmful to both the plant and humans. Also, some species of fruit trees may be prone to diseases. Fruit trees should be lightly pruned in the summer to avoid these problems.

If you’re not sure about how to properly prune your tree, hiring a professional is the best option

A professional tree services will have the proper tools and training to ensure that your tree is pruned safely. Having a professional perform the pruning will not only improve the look of your property, it can also add around 20% to its value.

Trees are a natural part of the landscape and can make your yard look tranquil and serene. However, the wrong types of trees can be a safety hazard. Trees near power lines, driveways and other structures can cause major damage to these areas. Many times, a damaged tree can cause a fire. Other dangers include hanging dead branches over electricity and telephone lines.

Pruning is a simple and effective method for improving the structure of a young tree. Young trees need structural integrity to develop a strong and healthy structure. This helps protect the trees from storm damage. In addition, pruning helps develop a strong and attractive shape. Once a tree is mature, less corrective pruning is required.

Whether you’re a novice or a professional, you can improve the look of your trees by learning about the three T’s of pruning: timing, thinning and heading. All of these steps can help your tree look its best and provide a stronger structure. Before starting the process, be sure to consult with an arborist.

The first step in pruning is to know your plants. Some plants may need to be pruned after their bloom, while others can be pruned at any time. Depending on the species, the tree may be able to grow naturally without any pruning. Plants that are allowed to naturally grow may only need a little pruning, but it’s still important to pay attention to the plant.
