The process of pruning is wounding the tree and thus must be done correctly otherwise these wounds can be an entry point for disease and insects therefore it’s a task best left for a certified professional arborist.
Reasons Why Trees Must Be Pruned
It improves the overall health of a tree
The most common reasons for branches dying are a lack of light, root damage, disease and pests. While at first it can seem counter-productive often the best course of action is pruning the tree back which promotes growth
Thining out the trees canopy promotes growth
Trees need to be able to breathe to grow properly. They also require light on their leaves and this is where pruning can have a significant impact on the trees overall health. Thinning out the top branches promotes better air circulation and lets light into the lower areas. This process also reduces the impact of winds on the tree which lowers the chance of future limb breakages.
It promotes a safer environment
The structural integrity of a tree is paramount to the safety of both yourself and your property. A key part of maintaining this integrity is pruning it back to lower its weight which reduces the chance of limbs breaking and also prevents branches rubbing. Regular pruning also reduces the chance of limbs falling due to them being damaged or dying off.
To reduce maintenance costs
Clearing leaves and small branches from gutters and your roof can be an arduous process that needs to be carried out regularly. By pruning branches back from your house, office or school buildings you can reduce maintence costs and prevent any damage that may result from it.
To improve the overall look
While pruning has many benefits for the tree and your safety sometimes you simply want the tree to look better. Regular pruning improves the overall look of the tree as well as making it healthier.
