- Tree Pruning
Maintaining the landscape within the limits of your property, can not only make your house look more visually appealing but it can also increase the value of your property. Maintaining your landscape includes maintaining and pruning your trees. There are a variety of reasons to prune your trees.
For Aesthetic Appeal
Pruning often influences the shape of your tree quite dramatically. There will always be branches, limbs and other sections on trees that grow a lot faster than others. Cutting sections off could make your tree look more symmetrical. Pruning is essentially ensuring your trees become even and well-groomed, it also enhances the shape of your tree.
To Help The Tree Grow
Tree pruning can often lead to stronger roots when carried out by a professional. The tree will be healthier and therefore can hold itself well in cases of extreme weather.
Encouraging Fruit Production
Most trees that produce fruit, can be encouraged through pruning. As the health of your tree increases and diseased / dead wood is removed – which makes the tree less likely to suffer from infections, you’ll see an increase in fruit production from your tree.
Getting Rid Of Dangerous Branches
Dead branches tend to snap quite easily compared to healthy ones, this could lead to danger for you and by passers in cases of severe weather. The dead branches could fall quite easily, which could lead to people getting hit by branches. For the safety for you and others, we recommend you regularly prune your trees.
To Prevent Diseases
Pruning for preventative measures can be a very good way to ensure the health of your tree in the long term. If your tree is mature, you are more than likely to find dead branches that could spread diseases to other trees within a close proximity. If you identify these branches early enough, you could ensure that the other branches do not get infected.
Improving The View
Pruning your tree, to ensure you have a better view of the landscape around your property can add to the value of your property. Vista Pruning as it is called, comes in handy if you have a view on a particularly attractive landscape behind your tree.
