Pruning a tree comes with several benefits. The first and most vital is keeping the people around it safe. A dead branch can fall from a tree at anytime, endangering nearby buildings, people, and power lines. So, eliminating dangerous limbs and maintaining a safe tree in your home or business is always ideal. However, pruning can be hazardous, depending on the tree size and location of the branches. To ensure your personal safety, we suggest you allow a landscaping company to complete any tree pruning.
Tree Pruning Promotes Tree Growth
There are several reasons why tree pruning your home or business is essential. Pruning a tree can impact what way the tree grows. With proper pruning, a tree can grow into a specific configuration of branches ideal for the tree’s structural integrity.
In addition, maintaining the tree’s structure helps to reduce the risk of broken limbs and falling branches. Consequently, structural tree pruning can significantly enhance the tree’s general look. Proper pruning can enable the tree to grow in the desired fashion if aesthetics is crucial to you.
When to Prune Your Tree
Remember that any pruning should be done in late fall or winter because the tree is least likely to harm that might result from pruning. Also, trees are susceptible to stress, and eliminating their branches does trigger damage to the tree. So, certain species of trees need more precise trimming and various approaches for proper pruning.

Less is More Regarding Pruning
It’s also critical to remember not to prune too much off of a tree. Generally, you want to prune the smallest amount you can that accomplishes the desired effect. So, never prune more than ¼ of a tree’s crown, as this is where most of its leaves get most of their energy. As a result, you run the risk of damaging the tree if it’s pruned too quickly.
