You have probably heard that pruning is beneficial to your trees, but do you know why? There are several reasons why proper pruning really does help your trees grow strong and healthy. Here are four reasons why you should consider having your trees pruned:
It Makes Them Healthier
When you prune away dying or infested branches, it prevents the insects or other organisms that were harming those branches from infecting the rest of the tree. That can save the tree’s life, and save you money on a replacement.
It Can Stimulate or Suppress Growth
You can prune trees in such a way that either promotes new growth or suppresses unwanted growth. Get rid of any parts that are overgrown by pruning them aggressively, and promote new growth by pruning more sparsely.
It Makes Them Safer
Pruning can keep low-hanging branches from becoming too large and hazardous. On smaller trees, it can keep the foliage from blocking a sidewalk or growing in a way that rubs and damages other foliage.
