What is pruning

Pruning is when you selectively remove branches from a tree. The goal is to remove unwanted branches, improve the tree’s structure, and direct new, healthy growth. Pruning is one of best things you can do for your trees. A proper prune is both an investment in the long-term health and overall look of the tree. It can also can be useful for the safety of your property from damaged branches that may fall.

We offer pruning techniques such as cutting back branches, sometimes removing smaller limbs entirely or the removal of young shoots, buds, and leaves. This can help to control growth, remove dead or diseased wood, and stimulate the formation of flowers and fruit buds.

it’s always best to check the time of year to prune your trees, some are better pruned in the winter and some are best in the summer. Deciduous trees (ones that lose their leaves in winter) are usually pruned in autumn and winter. In some cases, for example with magnolias and walnuts, pruning is best done in late summer. 

For Evergreens winter is a good time as the sap won’t have risen yet so weeping and bleeding can be kept to a minimum.

However, pruning for safety reasons can cautiously be done all year round. Please give us a call or email us for advice on when to prune your tree.

Before any work is carried out on mature trees the site is inspected for risks and wildlife, bats, nesting birds etc all of which are protected by law.
