Different Types of Tree Pruning
There are various types of tree pruning and each has a different purpose. The most common type of tree pruning is crown cleaning which involves removing dead, diseased or dying branches from the crown or canopy of the tree. This helps to improve the tree’s appearance and health as well as reduce the risk of these branches falling and causing damage.
Another type of tree pruning is thinning which selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air circulation within the canopy. This can also help to reduce wind resistance and the weight of the canopy, making the tree safer in strong winds.
Crown raising is another common type of tree pruning that involves removing lower branches up to the desired height. This is often done to improve the tree’s appearance or to allow for clearance beneath the tree (for example, for vehicles or pedestrians).
Finally, crown reduction is a type of pruning that involves reducing the overall size of the tree’s canopy. This is often done to make the tree safer (by reducing wind resistance) or to reduce its impact on surrounding buildings or structures. It is important to note that this type of pruning should only be carried out by a qualified arborist as it can easily damage the tree if not done correctly.
As you can see, there are various types of tree pruning that can be used for different purposes. If you’re not sure which type of pruning is right for your tree, then it’s best to consult with a qualified arborist who can advise you on the best course of action.
