Tree pruning is a common maintenance procedure mostly done to maintain a trees shape and keep them looking aesthetically pleasing. Pruning trees also helps maintain the structural integrity and reduce potential risks.
To get the best results from pruning trees, you need to understand understand the biology of the tree. If you don't prune appropriately, you might end up damaging the tree all together or shorten the lifespan of a tree. Tree pruning takes either the form of a DIY project or a professional help. With that in mind, you need to understand the following process involving the pruning procedure.
Why Prune Trees?
People prune their trees for three reasons; improving its form, removing dead branches, and reducing risks. Depending on the reasons, specific types of pruning apply to ensure you adhere to safe, healthy, and attractive condition. Here are various forms or pruning process and their purposes.
Cleaning is the most common pruning method and the first process used on any tree. It mostly involves the removal of dead, sick, or weakly attached branches. Tree branches get damaged from diseases, harsh weather such as storms and wind, and damages from animals that climb the branches. These branches can make your tree look ugly and can affect the entire tree if the damage is as a result of a disease. Pruning on time is, therefore, necessary.
After removing the dead, weak, or broken branches, you need to structure your tree. Structuring your tree will not only improve its appearance but also make it easy for light to penetrate and air to move through the crown for healthier growth. This also reduces weight on heavy limbs hence maintaining a perfect shape.
This step involves the removal of lower branches and maintaining the lowest permanent ones. You will determine the location and the function of the tree when doing the raising. The lowest branch should ensure clearance to buildings, vehicles, vistas, and pedestrians.
The final step to pruning involves the reduction of the high branches and the height of the tree altogether. This process gets it out of the way of utility lines. You might want your tree to grow to the tallest height in the neighborhood, but that will be dangerous if the tree grows to dangerous heights.
