A tree pruning program is among the most practical methods of maintaining trees in optimum health. Branches, buds as well as roots may be pruned back. But it must be completed at the right time of year and in the right way. It must also be carried out by a qualified arborist as pruning wounds the tree. If it’s not done properly those wounds can be an ingress point for disease or pests.

4 Reasons Why Trees Ought to Be Pruned
To bolster the well being of the tree.
When branches die it’s often due to an absence of light, disease, pest damage or even root structure damage. If a tree is dealing with some kind of disease or malnutrition it’s best to prune the tree back to a healthier state and let it re-grow from there.
For safety and security reasons.
Improving upon the safety of trees entails taking out dead wood, structurally hazardous branches and enhancing the structural stability of the tree by weight reduction pruning. Weight Reduction Pruning: is a protective measure that scales down the risk of limb failures through end weight reduction, particularly on lateral limbs.
To thin out the tree’s canopy.
Thinning out the tree’s canopy allows more sunshine which consequently benefits the smaller sized trees and plants below. Thinning also improves air circulation through the canopy and decreases wind resistance or ‘sail weight’ strengthening the trees capacity to deal with strong winds. Thinning should be done precisely to sustain the trees structural integrity and should only be performed by a minimum AQF Level 3 Arborist.
To better aesthetics
Forming a tree through formative pruning trains the trees future growth and improves the overall appearance. An attractive and well styled landscape can add an immense amount of value to your property. With the housing market the way it is these days in Sydney, it can prove all the difference.
