As a property owner, it is your responsibility to ensure that your surroundings remain in order. You cannot take for granted the fact that you have to be in charge of tree care and maintenance should you have several trees around your property. Making sure plants and trees are regularly watered is simply not enough. For healthier and more beautiful trees, you may have to consider other tree services such as tree fertilization or even tree pruning.
There are still a lot of people who do not realize the importance of tree pruning. It’s quite similar but not the same with tree trimming. Some people feel like if the tree is not yet shabby or overgrown, then trimming is not necessary. In fact, there are trees that need some pruning at least once every year.
Tree pruning is the process of removing parts of the tree that may be decaying, unhealthy or are overgrown using pruning shears or scissors. In some cases, when branches are larger and heavier, larger tools may be required. Here are just a few of the many benefits of tree pruning:
- Tree pruning makes trees healthier. Since dead, sick, and decaying parts are removed, there’s room for healthier parts to grow.
- When pruned at the right season, trees would be more beautiful.
- Trees can be more fruitful or can produce more flowers with proper tree pruning.
However, just like tree trimming, it is important to remember that tree pruning must be done by a professional arborist or tree contractor. Improper tree pruning may lead to stopping the growth or even killing the tree. In addition, the right season for tree pruning depending on its species must be followed.
