What is involved in tree pruning?

Tree pruning is usually performed whenever you would prefer your tree to have a particular shape rather than appearing “wild” or unkempt. Instead of permitting a tree to grow naturally you should have it pruned while it’s still fairly young. Pruning involves making strategic cuts in the tree while it is still young to guide its growth patterns. Pruning should be performed at least a couple of times per year to ensure that your tree matures in a healthy manner.
