What is tree pruning?

Pruning is much more than the simple act of sawing off limbs. Proper tree pruning is an art based on scientific principles of plant physiology. At its most basic level, shrub pruning involves removing damaged, dead or structurally weak limbs, which will improve a tree’s health and reduce a tree’s chances of personal or property damage caused by falling limbs.

There are many reasons to prune a tree, the most important being safety. Branches that overhang the house or brush against it must be removed. Branches that block visibility near streets and intersections should also be trimmed away.

Dead branches should be targeted, along with any that cross and rub against each other. The correct pruning techniques will help the tree develop strong roots so it can weather storms. Pruning is also a great way to enhance the shape and stimulate fruit production.

The best time to prune is in the late fall or winter. This is because the sap is not running, so sap loss is minimized and the tree will not be stressed. Insects are also dormant, helping to prevent infection and infestation.
