Proper Pruning – The art and science of tree trimming
For the modern arborist, proper tree pruning is both art and science. The science is a blending of research, experience, knowledge and education. This allows an arborist to cut with the tree’s health as a priority.
The art of pruning is applying scientific methods to mold a plant into a safer, healthier, more accommodating aspect of the landscape. Overall plant health remains key, but through thinning, reduction and cleaning cuts, the modern arborist can improve a plant’s aesthetics and make it less hazardous without long-term detriment to plant health.
