Top Reasons to Prune Your TreesFor your trees to remain healthy and attractive, it's important to keep them properly pruned. By removing damaged branches, it's less likely that a tree will become diseased. And when trees are kept in good form, they can significantly enhance your property's curb appeal. When you need your trees pruned, you can ensure the work is done correctly by entrusting it to an experienced arborist. At BP Tree Services, our local arborists are experts at tree pruning.

Benefits of Keeping Your Trees Pruned

Proper pruning will help to keep your trees healthy. The general guideline is that branches should be removed if they're dead, diseased, or damaged. Such branches should be cut cleanly at the intersection. A clean cut will make it a lot easier for the wound to heal correctly, making it much less likely that a disease will use the cut as an opportunity to infect the tree.

It's particularly important that large limbs are removed if they are dead, diseased, or damaged. This is because such limbs are liable to come crashing down during a windstorm, potentially causing serious injuries and property damage. By being proactive about removing such limbs, the arborist can safely take them down before they get the chance to inflict problems on your property.

By pruning overgrown trees, more sunlight will shine onto your lawn and other flora, which can make plants a lot happier. Also, when you remove excess growth from a tree canopy, the improved air circulation can be good for the tree. And when you start pruning a tree before it reaches maturity, it's more likely that it'll have a healthy shape when it reaches its full size. In turn, you won't have to do as much pruning when the tree gets to be very large.

Proper pruning can also improve your view of the surrounding area. If you live near a body of water, this can enhance your quality of life, as well as your home value. It's bad for the tree if you simply lop the top off of it. But proper pruning can keep the tree healthy while giving you a better view.
