Tree Pruning

When you are thinking about tree pruning, think of getting your hair cut and styled. When properly done, it is a great experience and it leaves you feeling revitalized and happy. In many ways your haircut experience is what a tree experiences with professional pruning.

Skilled, professional pruning, especially of large shade trees, is important to the health of the tree and can greatly extend its life. If the pruning is not properly done, the tree can be stressed, damaged, or permanently injured. Proper tree surgery is determined by the tree species, its growth pattern, and of course, by it size. Your tree surgeon will have a reason for every branch pruned based on A Better Arborist® plan for your tree.

Forestry studies show that trees increase their growth rate when properly pruned. If trees are to remain healthy, they must grow. Growing trees will produce more leaves to manufacture food, heal over and compartmentalize decay, develop a vigorous defense system to fight off insect and pathogen attacks, and be much more tolerant of environmental stresses such as drought and cold.

A correctly pruned tree is safer. When correctly thinned by your tree surgeon, wind will blow through your tree instead of pounding against it. Such pruning will help reduce limb breakage in storms.
