- Pruning promotes growth thus maintaining the health and strength of the tree.
- Pruning makes the tree safe and sound in its natural environment.
- Pruning controls the size and shape, improving quality and visual appearance.
It is important that clients are aware of the basic terms commonly used to describe tree works so that they fully comprehend what our tree surgeons are recommending.
When a tree has outgrown its space in the garden, it will need to be reduced in size. It is better to do this sooner, rather than later, as the longer it is left, the harder it is to prune and less likely to recover.
Trees also might need to be pruned and reduced in size if they have dead, diseased, crossing or torn branches.
It is usually best to try and keep tree (and shrub) growth under control with regular pruning, but this is not always practical, especially if you come into unkempt trees and shrubs in a new garden.
Depending on the tree involved and the intended effect there are several tree pruning strategies.
An all over trim in spring or summer:
This is only appropriate for some smaller formal trees, in particular evergreens. This will need doing every year or two.
Pruning when dormant:
Usually involves shortening side-branches all over the tree to make it smaller and more pleasant. It lets in light and reduces the tree’s susceptibility to wind damage and is a chance to remove diseased or damaged wood.
The three main pruning terms are Crown Thinning, Crown Lifting and Crown Reduction.
Lifting the crown by removing lower branches will allow access for mowing, protecting and enjoying the shade cast by the tree.
Thinning crowns to let in more light by removing some, usually up to 30 percent, of the branches and concentrating on dead or congested shoots is another strategy.
Is the reduction in height and/or spread of the crown (the foliage bearing portions) of a tree. Crown reduction may be used to reduce mechanical stress on individual branches or the whole tree, make the tree more suited to its current ecosystem or to reduce the effects of shading and light loss, etc.
