Little Off the Top: Palo Alto Tree Care Calls for Regular Pruning
Tree service companies like Bay Area Tree Specialists can provide professional tree pruning for Palo Alto residences, so you can hire them to do the pruning for you. However, as mentioned above, a lot of pruning work can be done by people on their own. To do basic cuts, take three steps. First, do a small wedge-shaped cut under the branch and remember to prevent any tears from running along the bark or stem tissue. Second, somewhere further up the branch, cut all the way through leaving a stub at the end. Finally, reduce the stub as completely as possible. Since tree pruning can significantly affect the health of a tree, better make sure that if you can’t prune a tree well, hand over the task to experienced professionals instead.
