How Do You Prune Trees?
Properly pruning a tree is something that should only be done by a professional arborist or a homeowner with extensive experience in this field.
The reason why this is so important is that the very act of pruning or trimming is a delicate balancing act. You don’t want to end up cutting too little or even too much. The end result could end up killing your tree.
For smaller trees, homeowners should be able to get advice from their arborist or online industry resources. They’ll need tools like pruning shears, stakes and more to get the job done properly.
For larger trees, a tree care company such as ours should be called in to assess the situation and make a decision we can both agree on. What are your goals? Some people would like a tree that’s healthier, others are looking for more of a natural shape.
