Pruning vs Trimming
Though many times these terms are used interchangeably, both processes have distinct functions and applications.
Pruning is the process of selective removal of certain parts of a plant or a tree. Some parts of the tree such as branches may be infected or dead. Removing these or cutting them will enhance the overall health and growth of the tree. We provide pruning services for trees in both residential and commercial properties.
While pruning is usually associated with trees and shrubs, trimming is used for shrubs and hedges. Pruning not only prevents safety hazards in the area, but also allows the plant to grow to its full capacity. Trimming is mostly used for design purposes. Trimming helps in lessening excessive dense bushes to be in shape. It is mostly used for landscaping purposes.
Benefits of Pruning
Pruning your trees is important for a number of reasons, such as yard safety. When trees aren’t regularly pruned, it can lead to numerous dead branches. This poses safety concerns for people, power lines, and surrounding structures, which can be damaged by falling limbs. In addition to improving safety, regular tree maintenance offers many other benefits.
The advantages of regular tree pruning include:
– Positively influencing tree growth
– Improving the tree’s structural integrity
– Reducing the risk of falling limbs or branches
– Improving the appearance of the tree
– Optimizing weight distribution
– Helping trees grow healthy
