Pruning is necessary for keeping backyard trees looking their best. However, it’s also essential for the health of the trees. When it’s time to prune, it’s recommended that you only trust a certified arborist with the job. Tree pruning is a delicate process that requires precision and in-depth knowledge of tree care. Here’s a look at the reasons you’ll want to contact an arborist for your pruning needs.
Improve Structure and Strength
With regular pruning, your arborist will coax your tree to grow into a specific shape. The shape your arborist will create is one that maximizes the strength of the tree, so that broken branches and limbs are less likely to impact it. Pruning also improves the strength of your tree by ensuring even weight distribution as it grows.
Boost Flowering or Fruit Growth
If you have a flowering or fruit-bearing tree, then pruning will encourage healthy growth. Pruning encourages flower buds to form and grow along branches. It also encourages the early buds of fruit and allows for increased airflow around the fruit as it grows, which reduces the risk of diseases that can affect your harvest.
Protect Your Property
Limbs that have become weak because of weight, age, or external damage pose a danger to your home and overhead utility lines. Through regular pruning, these limbs will be removed before they cause damage. Healthy limbs that have grown in dangerous locations can also be removed safely during pruning to protect your home.
