Tree Trimming (or thinning) refers to removal of excess branches and deadwood. Tree Pruning goes further with selective cutting, shaping, and guiding the tree how to grow.
Reasons For Tree Pruning and Tree Trimming
The main reasons for pruning ornamental and shade trees include safety, health, and aesthetics. In addition, pruning can be used to stimulate fruit production and increase the value of timber.
Tree Pruning and Trimming For Safety
Pruning for safety involves removing branches that could fall and cause injury or property damage, trimming branches that interfere with lines of sight on streets or driveways and removing branches that grow into utility lines.
Tree Pruning and Trimming For Health
Pruning for health involves removing diseased or insect-infested wood, thinning the crown to increase airflow and reduce some pest problems, and removing crossing and rubbing branches. Pruning can best be used to encourage trees to develop a strong structure and reduce the likelihood of damage during severe weather. Producing strong structure should be the emphasis when pruning young trees. As trees mature, the aim of pruning will shift to maintaining tree structure, form, health and appearance. Removing broken or damaged limbs encourages wound closure.
Tree Trimming and Pruning For Aesthetics
Pruning for aesthetics involves enhancing the natural form and character of trees or stimulating flower production. Pruning for form can be especially important on open-grown trees that do very little self-pruning.
