Tree pruning each spring can help ensure healthy trees and shrubs, prevent insect & disease infestation, and improve curb appeal.
One of the great aspects about spring time in Massachusetts is the revitalization of life in the form of foliage on thetrees that are common across our region. With the growth of new foilage comes the need to prune out the dead wood, increase the air and light flow, and remove any limbs that may be hazardous to property or utility lines.
Pruning should be done to:
- Improve survival chances at planting time
- Maintain or reduce plant size and shape
- Remove dead, diseased, weak or broken branches
- Stimulate flowering, fruiting or colored twig effect in certain plants
Tree pruning may require various types of equipment, from chainsaws to hand shears and small hand saws. We recommend consulting with a Certified Arborist before attempting to prune trees because improper tree pruning can seriously damage a tree or lead to the spread of insect and disease infestation. A Certified Arborist will be able to accurately assess a tree's current situation, and implement tactics to help improve the health and appeal of that tree.
