About Our Tree Pruning Services
Pruning a tree is the act of taking away part of its structure by making specific and deliberate cuts to branches. The reason to prune a tree varies by species, placement, health condition, structure, and desired contribution to a space. All of the reasons to prune a tree are equally important. However, nearly half of the requests for arborists to prune trees are made with the prequalification: “I want to do what is best for the tree.” With this in mind Pro Arbor arborists approach tree pruning by first understanding why pruning is being considered at all.
The only pruning that actually benefits a thriving and healthy tree is that which can be called structure pruning. Structure pruning involves removing portions of the crown of a tree that, if permitted to grow, would eventually contribute to injury or failure in the tree. Limbs within the crown of a tree can sometimes grow in a way that would put them in conflict with other limbs. When branches touch each other the contact points of those branches develop injuries due to the friction of bark rubbing together. These injuries become structural defects that can lead to branches or even trunks breaking. So removing conflicting branches from the crown of a tree promotes a structure in the crown that is stronger when the tree reaches full maturity. Branch angles in the crown of a tree affect the tree’s eventual structure, so a skilled arborist considers the angles of all branches in the effort to optimize the tree’s mature form. This process, when started early enough in a tree’s development, can lead to a mature tree that is stronger and healthier than it would have been without an arborist’s care.
So when a Pro Arbor arborist is asked by an owner, “what would be best for the tree,” the focus becomes largely the structure of the tree and whether or not it could be improved by pruning. Since there are many trees that have natural structure that would not be improved by pruning, many consultations with Pro Arbor arborists result in the decision to not prune a tree at all.
The rest of the reasons to prune a tree are for the benefit of the property, landscape, buildings, people, and other plants in the area where it grows. These reasons are equally important since the tree is only a piece of the built environment in which it lives. Every tree in a landscape must serve to make the landscape better than if it were not there, or else it would have to be removed for the good of the landscape. Limbs that encroach upon space needed for other plants, buildings, outdoor living areas, streets, walkways, or even views must be removed in order for a tree to actually be a functioning part of the landscape. Since these kinds of pruning are not really for the direct benefit of the tree’s health, consideration must be given to performing the task in the least harmful way. That is why an arborist is valuable in the process of pruning trees.
Pro Arbor’s tree pruning specialists will advise owners as to the best time of year to prune trees so that the cuts that are made in the process heal quickly and are least likely to harm the tree. This can vary by species, age, and condition of a tree. In the end, the owner of a tree makes all of the decisions regarding tree pruning. Pro Arbor’s tree care professionals strive to inform those decisions in a way that optimizes each property that we serve.
