Every tree needs proper pruning, and proper pruning needs the right person to do it. Why? Improper pruning can expose trees to pests and diseases and stimulate the loss of poorly branched trees. Pruning trees is not just the cutting of branches; pruning trees is removing dead, damaged, diseased trees. As a matter of fact, it is not just removing; we need to prune our trees to improve and maintain their health, reducing falling branches, preparing a nursery of specimens for transplanting, and both harvesting and increasing the yield, quality, and fruits.
Maybe others didn’t know all about it, so here are a few things to understand that we must become familiar with. There are two types of pruning: cutting removal and reduction. A removal cut is used to remove an entire branch. This cut is suggested and best for trees health and structure. The other one is the reduction cut. It is used to shorten a branch and reduce the size of a tree, often for clearance for utility lines. Reducing the height or spread of a tree is best accomplished by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to lateral branches that are large enough to assume the terminal roles (at least one-third the diameter of the cut stem).
It may be new to us, but once we understand its importance to our environment and safety, we can work together as one. Our goal is to educate others and give them the right service. Aside from pruning, we have shaping, site evaluations, long-term tree care, maintenance plans, selective logging, and many others.
