Contrary to popular belief, most trees do not naturally maintain themselves. Left unattended, trees will overgrow and accumulate large amounts of dead material. The results are not only aesthetically unappealing, they’re a safety hazard. Trees burdened by unhealthy limbs, damaged bark, and dead leaves are far more susceptible to disease, fire, and collapse than their well tended brethren. One of the best ways to keep your trees healthy and beautiful is through regular professional pruning.
The first thing you notice about a well pruned tree is the vitality it exudes. A professionally pruned tree isn’t weighed down by excess branches and dead material. Instead, it’s shaped into its most pleasing visual form and allowed to thrive. The removal of dead materials also takes away opportunities for fungus and insect infestations to form. Most importantly, the removal of unstable materials minimizes your risk of future storm damage or falling limbs.
But while an expert pruning ensures a tree’s beauty and vitality, inferior trimming can damage or even kill beloved trees.
Improper trimming techniques are all too easy to employ, with a single misstep resulting in destructive flush cuts, bark ripping, and stub cuts. These errors not only cause unsightly damage, they also act as gateways to tree rot and infection.
