During the life span of a tree, there are multiple occasions when it should be pruned.
Pruning a tree while still young will promote healthy development in the tree’s overall structure. By pruning the tree during its rapid growth years it promotes a much healthier mature tree.
Constant pruning allows you to maintain the size, shape and health of a tree. Proper pruning will extend the life of a tree.
The maintenance of maturing or already mature trees plays an integral part in preserving the tree’s health, appearance and structure.
Overall, you can prune a tree in any stage of its life. If executed properly pruning, based on the time of year and species of the tree, will encourage new growth and result in a better future for the tree.
