The Importance of Tree Pruning & Trimming
Many families plant trees in their yard and simply forget about them but in order to give your tree the best chance at living a long, healthy life, you should be aware of some tree care essentials. One of the most important tree care essentials is pruning and trimming your tree.
What Exactly Is Tree Pruning?
Tree pruning is essentially getting rid of old, dead branches and twigs in order to allow your tree to grow and prosper. Tree pruning is also necessary in the case of a sick tree so you may get rid of the diseased portions of the tree in order to restore the tree to it’s healthy state. Tree pruning and trimming keeps your trees alive for longer and allows them to keep their shape. It also encourages air flow to reduce disease frequency & any damage from storms, a harsh New England winter, strong winds and other possible damaging conditions. Dead tree branches can not only cause poor tree health, but may also pose a threat to pedestrians walking by and your property.
When Should You Prune Your Trees?
Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. The pruning routine for a particular tree will depend on what kind of tree it is, what the state of it’s health is, and its environment. For the best results, contact a tree professional for their expertise on the best way to maintain the trees on your property.
