Why prune your trees?

Pruning can seem like a small measure when it comes to dealing with large trees. However, pruning is effective with any size of young or mature tree. If you speak with a qualified arborist, they will tell you that tree pruning is one of the most essential strategies for keeping trees healthy, safe and beautiful.

So how does pruning do all of this? 

Pruning keeps your tree healthy

  • Pruning Encourages Growth
    Through the removal of unhealthy leaves and dead branches, pruning encourages new growth which improves the overall health of the tree.
  • Pruning Promotes Flowering and Fruit Production
    By making room for new growth, pruning boosts the fruit and flower production of the tree. This is not only good for the health of the tree, but the wider ecosystem that relies on these fruits and flowers.
  • Improves structural integrity
    Through the removal of excess weight on the tree, pruning stabilises the tree and protects the structural integrity. This reduces the risk of becoming imbalanced.
  • Reduces risk of infestation & disease
    An excess of unhealthy leaves and limbs can attract a range of problems to your tree. Rodent and insect infestations are more common in unpruned trees. Trees that have been pruned are also less likely to become sick through disease. 

Pruning makes your tree safer

  • Pruning Removes Dead & Dying Limbs
    By removing the unhealthy limbs of the tree and weight reduction, pruning reduces the risk of falling branches. This keeps you and your community safer.
  • Provides powerline clearance
    Pruning keeps tree canopies away from powerlines. This keeps your neighbourhood safer and mitigates the risks associated with high winds and storms.
  • Prepares your trees for storms
    • Trees left unpruned are far more likely to become dangerous when hit by strong wind and rain. Pruning keeps your tree stable.  Through the removal of branches that pose a risk, it reduces the chances that limbs will be brought down in storms. 

Pruning keeps your tree looking good

  • Canopy shaping
    Pruning helps to keep tree canopies shaped and aesthetically pleasing. While this can improve the look of your tree, it can also reduce wind resistance and leaf clutter.
  • Removal of dead leaves and branches
    Removing unhealthy leaves and branches promotes healthy growth, but also ensures your trees are looking kept and well-loved. Reducing leaf clutter also ensures the area around your tree is clean too.
  • Healthy is beautiful
    • Promoting growth, flower production and structural integrity all keep your tree healthy. A healthy tree is a beautiful tree.
