Tree Pruning

Pruning is a horticultural practice that involves selectively removing certain parts of a plant, such as branches, buds, or even roots. This is typically done to eliminate diseased, damaged, or unstable parts of the plant. To minimize the risk of decay, pruning is generally focused on smaller branches rather than larger ones. As such, it is best to prune younger plants.

It is crucial to keep the tree’s limbs intact while pruning, as they provide essential support for the tree to remain upright. While hedge trimming is a common method of maintaining hedges, pruning is also used on occasion, though less frequently.
