When To Prune A Tree
Removing diseased, weak, and dead tree limbs can be achieved anytime during the course of the year, with little if any affect. Generally speaking, wound closure and growth maximize if a tree prune service is done before the spring growth season. Furthermore, very few tree diseases, such as oak wilt, will spread when pruning wounds provide access to pathogens, also known as disease causing agents. Therefore, trees susceptible to disease should not be pruned during active transmission seasons.
Reasons to Prune
Since each tree trimming service preformed has the potential to make changes to the growth of a tree, it is highly recommended for a branch not to be removed for no reason. The typical reasons for a tree pruning service are to improve form, reduce dangerous conditions, and to remove dead branches. Furthermore, trees may also be cut in order to increase air penetration and sunlight to the inside of a tree's crown and/or the landscape underneath the branches. In most instances, mature trees are pruned in order to correct. or prevent any unnecessary measures. Lastly, repeated tree services also do not necessarily improve the overall health of a tree.
Servicing Young Trees
Tree pruning is essential to growing a tree with a desirable form and sound structure. Trees that receive professional tree care while they are still young will need less tree service as they continue maturing. Furthermore, a sound tree structure should have established primary branches while a tree is still young in age. The limbs, also known as, scaffold branches, are a fully developed tree's framework. Adequately matured tree's will grow a strong structure that will require less corrective tree pruning as it continues to age. For most trees, it is important to maintain a single superior leader growing upwards. It is recommended not to allow secondary branches of the tree to outgrow the main leader or to prune the back tip of the dominant leader.
