Although they may sound similar on paper, pruning and tree trimming have a slight difference that separate them as their own services. If tree trimming was to be considered as a hair trim for your trees, you could see pruning more as a full-on haircut. Our trained arborists are taught to understand tree biology and factor that plays a significant role in our decision making while pruning. One wrong move done while pruning could have adverse effects on the overall health of a tree and could potentially shorten its expected lifespan. However, when done right pruning helps the overall well-being of the tree, allowing the plant to grow stronger than before.
Unlike many other plants in the world, trees don't have a way of thinning out undesired leaves or branches. If a branch of a tree is getting more sunlight over the others, this may have adverse effects on the tree. Although more sun may sound like a good thing at first, an overgrown branch could cover and prevent sunlight from getting to the other branches. As this limb grows, it leaves no additional sunlight left for the infant limbs negatively affecting the tree. This makes the bottom or covered branches develop weaker than the larger branches above them. They are leaving these struggling limbs open to disease and insects to attack and spread to the tree from there.
If you want a fast and easy way to boost the curb appeal of your home, you can't go wrong with tree pruning. Tree pruning quickly removes any diseased, dying, or dead branches hanging from a tree. It's almost a night a day difference once these weak branches are removed. After purging a tree free of low-vigor branches, not only can you suspect the tree to look better. You can also expect to find the tree growing healthier and stronger because of the process. Although they may decaying or dying, a tree still allocates resources and nutrients to these branches so they can survive. Once these branches are removed, they can now redistribute stored nutrients to branches and limbs that add to the overall strength and appeal of the tree.
Thinning selective branches can boost the overall well-being of a tree, over if already have a healthy and robust tree, pruning can be utilized for other things. Such as tree shaping; if you were trying to craft a tree to your ideal image. The pruning process could be the best method to achieve your ideal results. When it comes to younger trees, pruning can also shape the tree to grow a certain way. Giving the owner complete control and over the young trees desired form.
Fire Damage Prevention
It doesn't seem likely that tree pruning helps a tree prevent fire damage. However, look at tree pruning this way. Decaying or dying limbs are more susceptible to fire damage because they dry out and dried out limbs are easier to catch fire because they lack moisture. If we remove these limbs during the pruning process, we remove the chance of these limbs catching fire and causing damage to the tree. Find out much more details about us.
