What is Tree Pruning?
Pruning is like tree trimming but with more factors considered. Trimming is basic cutting of limbs and branches, often because they are too long or too big. Pruning may also involve trimming, but the goal is to remove loose, dead, or infected branches too.
This service is absolutely critical at all stages of a tree’s life, but it’s more essential when a tree is young. The way the branches grow early on determines how much pruning the tree will need later on in its lifespan, and if well taken care of, a young tree will not need as much trimming as it matures.
Can I do pruning on my own?
There’s no reason why you can’t do smaller, basic jobs on your own. But it’s important to know a few things to look for first. When you’re trying to figure out how to prune a tree, the first step is to ascertain which branches are part of the tree’s main skeleton. These remain untouched, as they provide the structure that keeps the tree healthy and strong.
After this, you remove any unhealthy or dead branches. This keeps the tree from feeding nutrients and water to any parts that aren’t worth it. Those branches can be safely taken out without affecting anything.
When do I need professional tree pruning?
As you get deeper into pruning, more factors matter. The seasons matter when you’re pruning for shape and future growth, and if you do pruning at the wrong time you can open up trees to infections that can rot them from the inside. That’s why for any in-depth tree pruning, you need to call in the experts.
If you have a more comprehensive job or many trees that need to be done at once, our team is happy to come by and do the job for you.
We can do pruning on shrubs and brush too
Does your home’s front yard look more like a jungle than a garden? Hedges and shrubs grow well here in Vancouver. The climate with plenty of water and relatively temperate weather outside the winter months means shrubs will take off if you don’t keep track of them.
Like with trees, Shrub and hedge pruning in Vancouver, WA revolves around the seasons. You can do some mild trimming outside of the season, but if you want to do heavier pruning you have to wait for the correct season if you don’t want to hurt your plants.
Early spring-flowering shrubs should be trimmed right after they bloom, ideally. Summer-flowering plants should be winter or early spring so that they can still flower. Non-flowering plants should be trimmed after their new growth is done.
If you want your shrubs and hedges to look beautiful, you need to rely on a tree service that knows a little about pruning. That service should know the time of year to prune, which branches are best to prune and how to trim shrubs and hedges into an appealing shape.
