Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is more than just a maintenance and landscaping task—it’s a vital practice that nurtures your trees. Tree pruning drastically helps the health and beauty of your trees – it’s really two jobs in one!

How we do our tree pruning in new york


Pruning is essential for maintaining the health and appearance of a tree. Here are some signs and situations indicating that a tree needs pruning:

  • Dead or Diseased Branches: If you notice branches that are dead, diseased, or damaged.
  • Crossing Branches: Branches that rub against each other can cause wounds, leading to disease and pest infestations. 

  • Density: If the tree’s canopy is too dense, it can block sunlight and airflow, which is detrimental to the tree’s health and the plants below it.

  • Shape and Structure: Pruning helps maintain the desired shape and structure of a tree, especially for young trees.

  • Growth Directions: Branches growing in the wrong direction, such as toward structures, other trees, or power lines.

  • Water Sprouts and Suckers: These are vigorous shoots that grow from the root base or along branches. They can drain energy from the tree.

  • Safety Concerns: Branches that pose a safety hazard, such as those overhanging sidewalks, driveways, or roofs.

The frequency of tree pruning depends on the type of tree, its age, and its condition. Generally, most trees benefit from pruning every 3-5 years, while younger trees might require more frequent attention to shape and train their growth.
