Whether it’s a single tree in a domestic garden, or many more trees or shrubs, on a commercial scale, we have the team, the tools and the skills necessary, for the entire project, either on a one-off or ongoing basis.

Why Pruning is Vital

Pruning can be a tough job, especially if you have mobility issues, or if you don’t have the knowledge, or the correct and safe equipment to carry it out. It’s often because of these difficulties, that people will often ignore the need to prune trees and shrubs, until it becomes absolutely necessary.

Below, we’ve listed some of the key reasons pruning trees and shrubs is vital, for aesthetic reasons, and more importantly, for the health and longevity of the plant itself.

Why Do You Need to Prune?

To provide energy to new shoots – Over time, older stems of your tree or shrub start to wilt and grow slower, whilst still using up the plants energy. By carefully removing these old stems, you divert more energy to new shoots, allowing them to flourish.

To control new growth – If not kept in check with a regular pruning regime, trees and shrubs grow haphazardly, and sometimes more on one side than the other, causing stress on the plants main stem, or creating shade where you don’t want it. When pruned correctly, a tree or shrub will grow with an even weight distribution, and in the direction required.

To prevent the spread of disease – Diseases such as scab diseases, can quickly destroy healthy shrubs and trees. These sorts of diseases can be treated chemically, but if you’re trying to reduce chemical use in your garden, professional pruning is also a highly effective method of preventing the disease reaching other parts of the shrub or tree.

To increase fruit, flowers or foliage – When a tree or shrub is pruned correctly, and at the right time of year, the number of new shoots increase, which means more foliage and flowers, and a higher yield of fruit.

To improve the look – When carried out correctly, pruning is the perfect way to improve the overall look of a tree or shrub, which could be especially important in a landscaped, residential garden, or a public garden.
