Pruning vs. Trimming
These two terms are often used interchangeably by tree care professionals and customers alike, to describe the removal tree limbs. While this is acceptable when referring to basic tree limb removal, there are distinct differences between the two when considering one’s purpose for the tree limb removal.
- Pruning is the removal of dead, infected/diseased, or structurally compromised tree limbs.
- Trimming is the controlling or the cutting back of limbs that have outgrown the tree. Trimming is also used to describe landscaping performed on bushes and shrubs.
Pruning and trimming of your trees is not only aesthetically pleasing to you and your neighbors; it can also minimize property damage from storms, improve the overall health of your tree, and increase the flower and fruit production in your garden beds.
Customarily the best time to trim or prune your trees, is during the Fall and Winter months. Trees are dormant during this time and less susceptible to insects and diseases. Putting your pruning off until late Winter promotes fast regrowth in the Spring.
The Clean Out
Proper maintenance pruning is often referred to as a “clean-out” this includes the selective removal of crossing, co-dominant, dead, diseased, and dying limbs. When done correctly, this establishes proper branching structure to help develop a stronger, healthier tree canopy.
