Why prune trees?

Preventative tree pruning is designed to keep healthy trees healthy and reduce problems in trees under stress. Dead, weak or hazardous branches and limbs are removed first and then the remaining canopy is thinned as needed. This will improve branch spacing and preserve the symmetrical appearance of the tree. Additionally, lower branches may need to be removed or raised providing safe passage for pedestrians and vehicle traffic.
