Pruning Affects Trees In Good and Bad Ways
Pruning is a lot like a haircut or a shave in that the cosmetic ‘tidying up’ of a tree with overgrown branches and uneven growth can be brought back to a controlled and beautiful look. The bad comes from pruning at the wrong time of a tree growth cycle which may cause damage.
Pruning landscape trees in Pennsylvania is a whole different matter as there are considerable OSHA Regulations and ANSI guidelines that we must adhere to. This is one more reason to consider a professional when it comes to pruning.
When To Consider Pruning
Trees with various growth issues such as crossing branches, dead or hazardous branches, and storm damaged limbs, or that have branches growing into structures or power lines should be pruned. The same goes for trees with branches that are low and present hazards to people and vehicles.
Cosmetic reasons for having trees pruned include trimming trees that have grown too large and may be blocking a view or other visual feature. Another visual reason to prune is when a tree has sustained damage from a pest infestation and needs a trim to clean up how it looks.
