Pruning is the process of selective removal of certain parts of a plant or a tree. Some parts of the tree such as branches may be infected or dead. Removing these or cutting them will enhance the overall health and growth of the tree. We provide pruning services for trees in both residential and commercial properties.
Pruning vs Tree Trimming
Though many times these terms are used interchangeably, both processes have distinct functions and applications.
While pruning is usually associated with trees and shrubs, trimming is used for shrubs and hedges. Pruning not only prevents safety hazards in the area, but also allows the plant to grow to its full capacity. Trimming is mostly used for design purposes. Trimming helps in lessening excessive dense bushes to be in shape. It is mostly used for landscaping purposes.
Benefits of Pruning
There are multiple advantages of removing dead or infected branches of a tree. They include:
• Better Health – Pruning of dead or diseased branches helps in preventing further spreading of the decay.
• Appearance – A well-maintained tree or a plant reflects on how well you take care of your place. If it is a commercial property, it becomes even more important as it shows how you have an eye for detail.
• Improves Safety – Tree fall accidents can be prevented if you take proper care of the tree beforehand. If a dead branch is left untouched and there is a heavy breeze, it may fall over nearby powerlines or cause a threat to people.
• Shape – Pruning helps in shaping young trees. You can bring in the required structure for your tree.
