A routine pruning of trees is required to remove weak, diseased, or dead limbs. To maximize the growth of the trees and ensure wound closure is fastest, pruning can be done before the spring growth flush.


Susceptible trees should not be pruned during active transmission periods. You should always avoid heavy pruning of your trees just after the spring growth flush.


Making proper pruning cuts is also important. Pruning cuts should be made just outside the branch collar, without damaging or removing the parent branch tissue.

How Much Should Be Pruned?

A professional will know the amount of the live tissue that needs to be removed from a tree. The amount of live tissue removal highly depends on the tree size, species, age, and the pruning objective. Younger trees can tolerate the removal of a higher percentage of living tissue compared with mature trees. Pruning can have negative effects on a mature tree.


Wound dressing

Wound dressing is not recommended for trees. Research has shown that dressings do not reduce decay or speed closure and rarely prevent insect or disease infestations. If a dressing must be used for cosmetic purposes, only a thin coating of a non-toxic material should be applied.

  • Cleaning is the removal of dead, dying, diseased, crowded, weakly attached, and low-vigor branches from the crown of a tree.  

  • Thinning is the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown.

  • Raising trees removes the lower branches from a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, and vistas.

  • Reduction reduces the size of a tree, often for clearance for utility lines.

Specific types of pruning may be essential to maintain a mature tree in a healthy, safe, and attractive condition.
