Here at Wes’ Tree Service Inc., we want to help you keep your trees in good health, both to keep them looking great, and to prevent them from damaging your property. An important step for maintaining your trees is to prune them regularly, and in this article, we’ll go over some of the reasons why this is the case.
- It Improves Growth Structure. One of the reasons why tree pruning is key to producing healthy trees is that cutting a tree’s branches influences the way it grows. By pruning the branches as the tree develops, arborists like ourselves can encourage the tree to grow into a stronger configuration, in which the weight is distributed ideally throughout the structure. This reduces the risk of broken limbs and falling branches and gives you greater peace of mind about the integrity of your trees.
- Improves Appearance. In addition to improving a tree’s structural integrity, tree pruning is also a great way of improving a tree’s overall appearance. If any of your trees have become crooked or stooped, our team can prune them into more symmetrical, appealing shapes.
- Encourages New Growth. After a round of tree pruning, the newly trimmed branches will put out new growth. For some trees, it’s necessary to encourage this new growth in order to bring out its true beauty–for example, many flowering trees only bloom on new branches. If you want to ensure that your trees are strong, healthy, and beautiful, we encourage you to give us a call to arrange for routine tree pruning services.
