Tree pruning has many health benefits. When done correctly by a skilled arborist, pruning can be crucial for a tree. Every cut and prune has an effect on the tree in either a positive or negative way. Here are specifics to the importance of tree pruning:
- Structure: For young trees, a proper trim will help trees grow into a strong structure and form. A properly trimmed tree at a young age will also result in less pruning for the matured tree.
- Tree Health: Many trees have either diseased, broken or weak dead branches that are hard to detect. Thinning or possibly removing live branches can also be important to allow for increased sunlight. Kelley Tree service is an expert in tree health and can analyze what and what not to prune.
- Safety: Heavy, dead branches on a tree can cause safety issues for people and structures below. Improper or lack of pruning can lead to falling branches and an increased risk of injury.
- Frequency: Tree pruning should usually take place once a year during a trees dormant season(except during emergency situations). This is to be done around late fall or in the winter. This is the time of the year that trees are less susceptible to harm from the pruning.
