When pruning your trees, we will always remove any deadwood that we may come across, as standard. This is essential for safety reasons, and also helps to prevent potential disease/pests. Pruning should be carried out by qualified tree surgeons – if not pruned in the correct manner, using suitably maintained tools, it could be detrimental to the health of your tree.
Ornamental Tree Pruning
Keeping your ornamental trees in great shape is not an easy task. The fundamental reason for keeping ornamental trees, is to be able to marvel in their appearance. They can usually be found near the entrance to a house, or taking pride of place as a focal point in a garden.
Pruning ornamental trees is necessary not only to keep them aesthetically pleasing, but it also helps in promoting growth of buds for the following season. The process involves pruning and shaping, whilst retaining the size of the tree.
There are specific times of the year when it is best to prune your ornamental tree. We can advise you on the optimum time, to produce the best results.
Fruit Tree Pruning
Fruit Trees do not necessarily require pruning, in order to produce fruit. However, the pruning process encourages hearty, healthy stems to grow. If you decide not to prune your apple tree, it could grow smaller, less-sturdy branches which although still fruitful, would produce an inferior-quality fruit. The weight of the apples could break the stem, causing damage to your tree.
Fruit tree pruning is best carried out when the tree is dormant – usually late winter to early spring. However this is not always the case and we can advise you on the best time for your variety.
