Not all pruning is good!

Pruning a Willow tree at a historic siteOne of the most common questions we field is when is the proper time to prune a tree. While this can be an important question, I believe the more important question should be, why are we wanting to prune the tree? Aesthetics, dead wood removal, clearance from structures or a reduction in size are reasons for pruning. It is best to keep in mind that pruning a tree can be very harmful if done improperly. It is best to seek the advise of an ISA Certified arborist when looking for consultation about the health and well-being of your trees. The attached picture is of a Weeping Willow we pruned at Kinsmen Beach in Invermere in order to remove deadwood and to raise the crown for clearance. Give us a call to have your trees assessed by an ISA Certified Arborist today. Beware of those claiming experience but no credentials as often poor experience leads to long term damage to trees.
