Proper Pruning Is a Must
Taking care of your trees is a must. With the right care, your trees could potentially last decades and increase the value of your property. However, if you are concerned over what to look for in improper pruning here is what to keep in mind:

  • Jagged pruning cuts
  • Tree is outgrowing its space
  • Tree is overshadowing other trees
  • Is top heavy
  • Leaning to one side

Here are some myths to also avoid when pruning your trees:

  • Cut out one-third of the top growth when transplanting to offset root loss
  • Prune more than usual to offset injury or soil compaction
  • Prune heavily to help the grass or lawn grow
