A Pruning Primer

Making careful and correct pruning cuts and pruning at the correct time of year is one of the best things you can do for your trees. Regularly scheduled tree pruning improves tree health and form, controls growth, and increases tree strength. Pruning can also help with certain homeowner problems such as providing clearance, improving a tree’s appearance, and improving a view. These guidelines and accompanying graphics will help you make the right cuts:

Removal Cut

Prunes a branch back to the trunk or a parent branch. Reduces canopy density and allows light to penetrate the canopy and encourage growth on the interior branches.

Reduction Cut

Shortens the length of a stem by pruning back to a smaller limb large enough to assume dominance. Reduces canopy size and improves the structure of older trees. Never remove more than 25% of the canopy.
