San Jose Tree Service Maintenance Tips: General Tree Pruning Basics

Selective pruning can also help improve a tree’s growth. Clustered branches can be reduced so that smaller, undesirable branches do not retard the growth of larger, more desirable branches. Branches are also removed to keep them from rubbing against each other, which strips their bark and makes them vulnerable to disease and insect infestation.

Whenever experienced arborists prune a tree, it can sometimes seem like they’re simply picking buds and branches to trim at random. However, when done incorrectly, pruning can cause enough damage to kill a tree and warrant a call to a San Jose tree removal company.
