Tree Pruning


The removal of selective tree branches is often termed as tree pruning. Why do we remove some branches? There can be a number of reasons for this: it may be a damaged branch or a dead branch, we might want to reduce the size of the tree, to make the tree look better in its appearance, or maybe to thin out the crown of the tree. It may also be done so that the inner part of the tree also gets sufficient sunlight and air. A tree that is properly pruned also increases the level of sunlight at areas nearby. Tree pruning is considered to be a necessary step in maintain a tree.

There are many advantages of tree pruning. The first one is that pruning makes a tree look more beautiful to the eyes aesthetically. The second advantage is that it helps in improving the health of the tree as the dead or damaged branches are removed. This also proves beneficial for the environment. While pruning, it is important to note that it should be done in a particular season when it would least affect the tree which is generally the winter season as the trees are dormant then and microbes may not damage the trees much.

At the same time, it is equally important to see to it that too much of a tree is not pruned off. Try to do it the least possible in order to get the expected result. If you do too much of pruning, you may end up destroying the tree completely. Since, leaves are mostly located at the crown of a tree, it is not advised to prune it more than one-fourth of it. A tree that is properly and timely pruned will have structured branches, proper weight which will keep the away from major problems later in life.
