Pruning & Care

Proper pruning is necessary to maintain not only the shape of your trees, but also their overall health. Just like trimming your hair keeps it healthy and helps it grow, light pruning and removal of dead branches helps a tree grow strong. Maintaining the tree’s structure through well-planned pruning can also help mitigate the risk of broken limbs and falling branches, while also encouraging proper weight distribution as a tree matures. Removing dead or dying branches can benefit the whole tree by stopping decay organisms and unwanted pests than can be harmful. Thinning a tree’s canopy cover can also help increase the flow of air and sunlight, all contributing to the tree’s health.
