Tree Pruning

Trees are a wonderful addition to any garden. They provide precious shade on hot days. They add beauty to our surroundings and they’re vital to our wellbeing.

But trees that aren’t properly pruned can be a nuisance. They can obstruct driveways and paths, fill gutters with leaves, stop light coming through windows, create unwelcome noise, and overhang neighbouring properties.

Even worse, they can come into contact with power lines and other cabling. And loose branches caused by severe storms and heavy winds are downright dangerous.

Dead Wood

Seeing large sections of bark falling off a branch is a dead giveaway for dead wood. You may also notice that the branch shows no signs of new growth in the spring, another sure sign that the wood is dead and needs to be removed.

If dead wood accounts for more than half the tree, chances are it will need to be replaced. You may wish to consider planting the new tree ahead of the removal of the older tree to give its replacement time to start growing.

BENEFITS OF TREE TRIMMING

Tree pruning or trimming can:

  • increase sunlight in your garden and through windows
  • improve the visual appeal of the tree and garden
  • prolong the life of the tree
  • encourage new growth
  • remove branches that are dead or storm damaged
