Health of plants is of paramount concern We often tend to ignore the needs and requirements of trees around us. They are very much like us living beings. They also need proper nutrition and safety check for a stronger growth. Pruning and trimming are horticulture activities that take care of the health of a plant. let us look at the benefits of trimming and pruning elaborately-

1) Health

Both young and mature trees require safety checks. They have dead and dying branches which if not taken care of will destroy the growth of the plant. This damage is caused either by disease, insect, animals. A destroyed tree will hurt a plant’s natural growth and shape. Secondly, also gives birth to weak branches. If branches are crossing and rubbing against each other we, trim them in order to prevent them from falling unexpectedly. One can also remove live branches through trimming.

2) Appearance

Pruning helps in maximising the beauty of a tree. By pruning we remove the the unwanted branches and parts which might be hampering the growth or making the tree look over populated. We prune in order to-

  • Control the size of the plant
  • To keep shrubs dense and in well proportion
  • Remove waterspouts, suckers and improper fruit structures

3) Reduce Risk

When trees grow dense and large in size and shape there is always a possibility of falling. In extreme weather conditions like storm if excess branches are not cut there is a possibility of them falling and hurting anyone or anything in the surrounding. It the trees are located in pedestrian area or along a path it can be a risk to someone’s life. The branches can also fall on any car and can be of great loss. Low hanging or loose branches should be immediately cut.

4) Young Tree Growth

There is a reason behind why pruning young trees is good for them. Pruning young trees is important for their growth and future. By this we provide them with structural enhancement. By this we ensure that a tree has structural integrity and a definite and architectural growth. Young pruning also ensures that the tree will not face any huge problems in the future keeping huge costs at bay.

5) Maintenance

Pruning and trimming helps in maintaining a plant. It gives them a structure. If trees are not pruned for a long period of time they might become deformed or pruning them after a long time will be very costly. While trimming make sure you are handling young shrubs and not cutting the leader. Remove any branch that grows towards the centre of the the tree. Remove multiple leaders of origin and retain only one in one place.
