Pruning for the Health of the Tree
Pruning is best handled by a professional arborist who knows the right techniques for maintaining a tree’s health.
The technique of cleaning is the removal of dead, diseased, or weak branches. It is the most common form of pruning and is done to all types of trees. Cleaning a tree’s problematic limbs will help the tree prosper and live a healthier life. If left unchecked, these limbs could hinder the tree’s growth.
While tree pruning, we may use a technique called raising, which is the process of removing lower branches to make clearance for structures, vehicles, and people. This is common near and around buildings and walkways. It’s to ensure the safety of property and people working or passing through the area.
The reduction technique is used when we must reduce the size of the tree. This tree pruning method is done primarily for utility lines. This is not the same as tree topping, which is a harmful method of reducing the size of a tree. Instead, the reduction technique is done with the tree’s health in mind, so it remains healthy after the process.
Trees can be extremely dense when left unmaintained. Reducing density is done to increase light or wind penetration for the aesthetics of the landscaping. This tree pruning technique promotes foliage growth within the tree’s interior branches, allowing for a full look that matches the aesthetics you want.
