The goal of a professional arborist is to enhance not only the health of trees but also the landscape as a whole. Proper pruning is an essential aspect of improving the condition of trees and it requires patience, precision, and education. However, many tree companies do not carry out this vital practice in the correct manner, which can lead to a widespread negative impact on your trees. Green Roots strives to always make the proper cut, in the proper place, and at the proper time. Making the correct cut with the appropriate tools allows the tree to compartmentalize over the wound helping to resist disease and insect entry. Removing branches and foliage at the right place lets the tree remain structurally sound without compromising health, vigor and the natural beauty of the tree while also meeting the needs of the surrounding landscape. Knowing when to prune is crucial because it allows the arborist to mitigate and manage the risk of emerging diseases and regrowth issues. Please consult with a certified arborist of Green Roots to learn the benefits of properly timed tree pruning.
