  • 1. Pruning Trees for the Upcoming Springtime
  • 2. Pruning is an art and should be executed with an understanding of how the tree reacts to each cut, if not, incorrect pruning can serve as the precursor to damage later on that may last for the entire lifetime of the tree.
  • 3. Pick the Perfect Time to Prune Your Trees Tree experts all agree that diseased, damaged and dead branches should be eliminated as soon as possible. But they also note that the perfect time to prune is right before spring, before the tree starts to open its buds. Trees pruned right before spring acquire a callous around the cut faster than trees that are pruned at other times and therefore, can heal faster. While pruning can be carried out at anytime, it is best to stay clear of really hot, dry periods and intense winter temperatures, which is why right before spring is best. And though older trees may require frequent pruning to remove dead wood, younger trees must also be pruned regularly to encourage strong branch formation for later growth.
  • 4. How to Prune Pruning cuts should be made close to the base of the branch without leaving a stub. It is important to note that the new branch growth on the stubs will be especially weak. Haphazardly cutting off the large branches, known as topping, is never advised. There are several steps to removing large branches, with the final cut being made where the branch extends from the trunk at the bulge, known as the branch collar. In addition, the last cut should not be made level to the trunk. Doing this results in an extremely large wound and increased probability of improper healing and the occurrence of rotting.
  • 5. Pruning trees is about more than just cutting branches, it is both an art and science. When trimming and shaping trees, it is essential to maintain their proportion and shape. Consequently, pruning is about maintaining the optimal overall health of the tree.
  • 6. Hire a Professional Tree Removal Service Look up and contact a professional tree service in your area. Tree cutting companies are the best means of assuring that your maintenance turns out properly. Tree experts can carry out the pruning and guarantee that the correct limbs are selected, as there is a proper strategy. Professional tree trimming companies can significantly affect the aesthetic quality of your trees to help it maintain its best health throughout the year. With professional assistance, a tree that may be in ill health, overgrown or need to be removed all together can be completed in a professional, efficient manner.
