Tree Pruning

Every tree pruning jobstarts with a discussion with the client. Each tree is different and needs to be approached with care. Pruning is an essential practice that is carried out on both mature and newly flourishing trees. On mature trees, pruning is required to remove hazardous dead & dying branches, remove overlapping branches that are starting to rub, and increase light and air penetration into the crown. In most cases, mature trees are pruned to prevent defects from occurring or to help overcome previous wounds or weaknesses. However, regular pruning in most cases does not enhance the health of a tree. Therefore we assess the tree prior to any intended works and advise upon the best course of action.

Pruning young trees is more important than for mature trees as you set them on course to naturally prevent any weak unions, low bifurcation points, and overlapping branches. The ideal time to be pruning trees is once they are dormant in the winter months.

In tree species such as Cherry, it needs to be done in June/July to help
prevent defects such as bacterial canker. We can accomplish the removal of dead, dying or dangerous branches at any time of the year.
