What is Tree Pruning Exactly?

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

Believe it or not, there is actually a science to proper tree trimming and pruning to keep them looking great and avoid a shortened lifespan. This includes knowing which limbs to cut, how and where to cut them, and what time of year is best for pruning.

On a basic level, tree trimming and pruning include removing dead, diseased, hanging, or weak branches. Many homeowners can spot these and eliminate the ones closest to the ground. But a professional service can tackle the same job at greater heights, leaving for a more balanced approach and efficiently shaped tree through tip reduction. In many instances, we can spot limbs you didn’t think were an issue but are actually cracked and could lead to expensive damage if not removed.

Trimming and pruning also include restorative work and strategically removing branches weighing the tree down, limiting light penetration, and forcing you to “duck down” to avoid low-hanging branches. The benefits of tree pruning during the right time of the year include the following:

  • Improved tree appearance

  • Overall health

  • Better exposure to sunlight

  • Early disease detection and prevention

  • Reduce risk of property damage

  • Improved property values
