Pruning definition

It is much the same and yet slightly different to pruning. Tree pruning is actually a lot more of a considered, predetermined activity necessitating surgical incisions in specific places on the tree and during particular times of the year so as to improve the tree's vigor or fecundity. In reality, however, both words are made use of quite often reciprocally. And we offer both trimming and pruning, by the way so the difference is largely academic.

How to trim a tree without killing it

You might be tempted to trim a tree yourself. If you have a small-sized tree, it might be practical IF you own the appropriate hardware, a little practical knowledge, protective accessories and do not require a ladder. It's hard to encapsulate several years of knowledge as well as practical experience within several glib sentences. Having said that, the four common trimming lapses we see and what to steer clear from are described below in these tips:


  1. A stub is left behind just where the branch has been removed. Such stubs can attract rot because trees can not heal these stubs effectively. Alternately, cut close to the main branch but without touching the 'collar'. Really don't cut down too close because it will be sluggish to heal and invite decay causing weakness in the principal branch.
  2. Cuts are too oblique to the direction of the tree branch and larger than needed. Your trimming wound will need to be clean and you have to try for the minimum cut face attainable. Otherwise, the wound is going to repair over much more slowly, requiring additional energy that the tree could make use of elsewhere.
  3. Trees are sometimes cut back too radically. This is often termed topping or hatting or lion-tailing. All such aberrations will stimulate weak growth in the event that it doesn't finish off the tree completely. Aim to trim back no more than 25% from the overall tree canopy in any 1 year.
  4. The tree is way too big to cut. Inexperienced people going up sizable trees can and does lead to a very high likelihood of an accident and also property damages beneath and about the tree. Just don't ever do this - contact the experts.
