Tree pruning – why trees should be pruned

Tree pruning

The most frequent tree maintenance practise is tree pruning. Pruning is frequently desired or required to preserve safety, enhance tree structure and health, meet client needs, and improve the tree’s appearance. To know how to prune a tree, you should understand the biology and basic requirements of trees to undertake pruning that will optimize tree health and structure.

Pruning cuts must be done while considering the reaction of the tree. Improper pruning might leave a tree with permanent damage. A tree’s future growth is impacted and its ability to store nutrients is lost when branches are removed. The removal of leaves decreases the tree’s total capacity for photosynthetic activity and may slow overall growth, which may have the effect of dwarfing the tree. However, because fewer shoots grow after pruning, unpruned sections typically grow faster than they would have otherwise. Shoot invigoration is the term for this.
