Proper tree pruning or tree trimming is not just cutting off limbs of a tree haphazardly wherever you think you should but involves taking the overall size and structure of the tree into consideration, and creating a reshaping plan that will ultimately benefit the tree and help it to grow better. A full tree prune will involve the removal of dead and diseased wood, crossing/rubbing branches, and redundant branches. A full tree prune will open up the crown for better air and light penetration, reset a proper structure to the tree, leave the healthy dominant branches to grow, and allow for future growth in a safer and healthier tree.
There are a number of reasons to prune a tree. Not only can it help with the aesthetics of the tree it can also boost its health and help it reach its full potential.
Cutting the branches off of a tree can be a fairly small project, depending on the size of the tree and the scope of the number of limbs you want to remove. Many people try to tackle pruning their trees themselves, but there are many reasons why we always recommend getting an arborist to prune your trees.
Safety – First and foremost it is safer to help a licensed professional tree expert prune your trees. If you are looking to remove limbs that are above six feet and will require you to use a ladder or enter the canopy of the tree off the ground it is best to speak with an arborist about doing the job. They have years of experience and the proper equipment to climb into a tree and remove certain limbs safely. They will also assess the strength of the tree before climbing it to make sure it is healthy enough to support a person’s weight. Many people are needlessly injured every year from trying to DIY their tree pruning project.
Tree Health – Cutting the wrong limb of a tree can be detrimental to the tree’s health. It can leave the tree vulnerable to disease or pests, or cause the tree to suffer a mutation or stunted growth. An experienced arborist will look at the tree and determine the correct branches to remove to help the tree grow and stay healthy. While still taking into consideration the aesthetics of the pruning job.
Convenience – Although you might be about to handle a DIY tree pruning task yourself do you want to? A certified arborist and his or her team have the knowledge and experience to not only prune and trim your tree correctly but also quickly. Tree pruning tasks handled by a local arborist near you can be done in as little as a few hours and not only will the pruning be done but the brush and limbs will be dragged away and put in the chipper leaving you with no residual clean up of your yard.
