Tree Pruning Cheshire – Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure and includes techniques such as Crown Thinning, Crown Lifting and Reduction. Forest trees grow fairly well with only nature’s pruning however, landscape trees require a higher level of care to stay safe and aesthetically pleasing. Pruning should be carried out with an in depth understanding of how the tree responds to each cut. Improper pruning can cause damage that will last the lifetime of the tree, or worse, shorten the tree’s life and result in it becoming unsafe. Since every cut has the potential to change the growth of the tree, no branch should be removed without reason.

Common reasons for pruning are to:

  • Remove dead branches
  • Remove crowded or rubbing limbs
  • Eliminate hazards
  • Increase light to the inside of the tree’s crown or to the landscape below.

In most cases, mature trees are pruned as a corrective or preventative tree maintenance measure. For the above reasons it’s particularly important to use a professional, reputable tree surgeon to carry out any tree pruning work.
