Pruning may be the most effective method of achieving and maintaining a healthy, safe, and vibrant tree.
Removing weak, dead, or diseased limbs, water sprouts, dead plant material,
and/or overgrown branches can enhance the health and aesthetics of your tree immensely.
There is a great benefit to starting young trees on a pruning program. Not only does it allow you to design
the look of your yard, it also prevents unbalanced overgrowth, which can lead to a costly removal down the road.
When a tree is pruned properly from its youth, it teaches the tree to form
a strong central liter (or trunk) as well as a full canopy. As the tree grows and matures, the pruning
it received early on will help keep it healthy and more resistant to pest infestation,
disease, decay, and storm damage. Additionally, if the tree is maintained properly from the
beginning, the need for excessive pruning and costly maintenance will
become less necessary as the tree grows.
