Tree pruning is your most effective form of tree maintenance. This mode of tree trimming keeps specimens under control and helps avoid tree removal.
Pruning is good for many trees. It encourages health in the tree by opening it up to air and sunlight. It can also help the tree to look better, or simply be the appropriate height and size for it’s location in your property. Pruning of apple trees or other fruit trees, for example, can also help promote growth of new fruit-bearing branches, and Beaver Tree Service’s trained arborists can advise the best time to carry it out. It is important to prune your trees at the correct time of year, as not doing so may harm the tree.
Tree pruning may be required for a number of reasons, including:
- Branches are diseased or damaged: It’s important to prevent disease from spreading in your tree, or to other trees, as this can be unsightly and cause the tree to have poor health.
- Aesthetic considerations: Pruning can make your tree look more appealing.
- To trim their height
- To improve light penetration and air circulation
By trimming the lower branches of a tree, light and space for other plants can be created, and other garden features may be better revealed.
Tree pruning can also add character to a formless specimen, making it look much more attractive. This can bring a new lease of life to a tree that hasn’t been offering your garden much.
