Pruning is not just to shape and beautify a tree or shrub; it also helps to revitalize its health. That is the reason you should regularly prune and trim trees and shrubs in your garden. Whether you are a homeowner or business owner, tree pruning is something you should not ignore.

Under normal circumstances, many homeowners prune trees and shrubs themselves.

It is prudent to remember that pruning can have an effect on the growth pattern of the plant. Hence, we take the utmost care when we cut branches and twigs. We prune to get rid of dead branches, increase light and air penetration in the crown, and minimize crowding of branches.
We have the expertise and experience to remove just enough. If we cut too much, it would stress out plant and adversely affect its growth and health. Hence, where pruning is concerned, less is more. It helps to shape and train the branches so that you get the desired look.
We are experts in several pruning techniques and we use them in tandem to shape a shrub or tree without stressing it out. Some of the techniques we employ are:
Cleaning: This helps to get rid of dead, broken, diseased, and dying branches
Thinning: We thin branches when there is overcrowding and as a result, it decreases the amount of air and light that enters the crown. Thinning also improves the shape of the tree and ensures nutrients reach all the branches without a hassle.
Raising: This pruning method gets rid of low-lying branches that can hurt someone while walking. We cut just about enough to clear the path and usually, we use this pruning technique if there are overhanging branches on a garden pathway.
Reduction: We use this pruning method when branches touch power lines and could be dangerous.
