Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Pruning should be done with an understanding of how the tree will respond to each cut. Improper pruning can cause damage that will last for the life of a tree, or worse, shorten the trees life.
No branch should be removed without a reason. Common reasons for pruning is to remove dead, dying, diseased or broken branches, rubbing branches, branches of interference or hazardous branches.
Properly pruning young trees is essential in developing a tree with a strong structure and a desirable form. Trees that receive the appropriate pruning measures while they are young will require little corrective pruning when they mature.
