We often end up on customer’s properties in which their trees have been thoroughly damaged due to pruning. This can happen for quite a few reasons. To begin with, a home or property owner may take it upon themselves to start cutting branches down when they have no idea what they’re doing.
However, most of the time it’s just poor work done by an inexperienced tree care company. You have to understand that tree pruning is an art and it’s not something that should be taken lightly. We place a purpose behind each and every tree branch we cut down. Just to give you the very basics without getting too detailed, the main purpose of pruning is to restore your tree’s healthy and natural form.
Some of the things we look out for when it comes to cutting are loose limbs, dense foliage, diseased branches, loose or rubbing branches, and dead limbs. All of these can contribute to a sick tree.
