“Proper pruning is one of the best things that can be done for a tree, improper pruning is one of the worst things that can be done for a tree.” ~ Dr. Alex Shigo
Some people think pruning tree is wasteful and unnecessary; after all, trees in the forest grow just fine without it. What may not be obvious is only one in a billion seeds in a forest grows into a mature tree. In contrast, all urban trees are expected to reach their maturity.
Structural pruning can help a tree’s overall health, resulting in trees being more resilient to storms, snow or ice, while improper pruning can shorten a tree’s life span. Therefore, pruning plays a big role in preventative tree care.
The two main objectives of pruning are to improve the appearance of trees and reduce the risk of failure by improving and strengthening the tree structure.
Ideally, pruning should be part of the regular maintenance of trees. Pruning strategies should be matched with the stage of life of a tree.
There is an entire science behind pruning. That’s why having pruning done by trained arborists can be a big benefit.
