Tree pruning is a very important tree maintenance procedure that helps greatly in keeping trees beautiful and healthy. It is a procedure that must be done by professionals because incorrect pruning may lead to significant damage to a tree. At Duval and Son Services, we have a team of highly trained and experienced crew who can help with your tree pruning requirements and other maintenance needs.
Although there are now many DIY guides on how to prune trees along with step-by-step instructions and the tools you need, we can say with years of experience that first-hand knowledge and actual experience are absolutely needed to carry out this procedure properly and safely. Aside from the fact that tree pruning may be risky especially when you need to reach branches and limbs on higher parts of the tree, there’s also that risk to incorrectly prune a tree that may lead to lasting damage. At times, a tree may even die with improper pruning.
The Benefits of Tree Pruning
Trees must be pruned every few years or so, depending on how fast or slow the tree on your property grows. Smaller plants, shrubs, and bushes need more frequent pruning especially if you want to maintain them at a certain size. Just like other tree maintenance procedures, tree pruning offers several benefits. Among these benefits are the following:
Aesthetics: Pruning can make trees more beautiful than they already are. Experienced tree contractors may even prune a tree according to the shape you desire. Just like humans getting haircuts, trees look fresher and prettier when newly pruned.
Tree Health: Pruning involves removing weak, sick, and dead branches. When these are removed, new life is breathed into the tree, which encourages new branches and leaves to grow. Proper pruning may also help extend a tree’s life as much as improper pruning can shorten its life.
Safety: Much like tree trimming, pruning is done to promote safety for the sake of the tree’s surroundings. By removing those weak or dead branches and limbs, the tree becomes stronger and can withstand strong winds and heavy rains even more than before.
Fruit and Flower Growth: Another great reason for you to prune trees on your property is to help promote fruit and flower growth. This is, of course, only applicable to fruit- and flower-bearing trees.

As earlier mentioned, tree pruning is best done by professionals. Even a small mistake can lead to permanent damage to the tree’s health. Over the years, we’ve seen trees get sick or die because of improper pruning. For instance, some improperly pruned or trimmed trees stop growing permanently. For this reason, some property owners also request tree pruning to suppress tree growth without killing it.
