Tree pruning involves the removal of branches from a tree. The goal is to remove unwanted branches, improve the tree's structure, and direct new, healthy growth.
It is always recommended to hire a professional arborist for the task to be completed efficiently. No matter how expert you think you're – tree pruning is an art that comes after years of experience and should be left for professional arborists. Also, this task is also quite prone to accidents, so it's better to stay safer than getting injured.
The dead branches or limbs of the tree are removed when pruning is done, which automatically helps in healing the wound and reducing decay of the stem. The only reason behind this is not always to enhance the tree's health. In most situations, trees grow haphazardly becoming too big and coming in the way.
In such situations, we need to get rid of those specific branches that are too close to the house wall or in the street. In some cases, the goal is to prune the tree in such a way that brings minimum harm to tree health.
Correct pruning procedures help to prevent safety hazards during a heavy storm close to a driveway or sidewalk. Pruning stimulates the growth of the thin parts. It also helps to restrict undesirable growth.
