Reasons to Trim or Prune a Tree

There are three reasons for your trees to be pruned: hazard reduction, aesthetics, and health.

Hazard Reduction

Hazard reduction pruning is exactly what it sounds like. Pruning a tree to eliminate a possible hazard or danger. Dead or broken branches and limbs can fall off at any time, which is a serious safety hazard. Removing dead, rotted, and damaged limbs hanging over your property or house is a great way to reduce a hazardous situation so that they don't fall and hurt someone and/or damage your home.


Pruning a tree effectively helps it maintain its shape and appearance and improve the health and structure of your trees. This can include hazard reduction pruning also. However, you shouldn’t try to impose an unnatural shape or size on a tree. Over trimming and pruning a tree can seriously damage it.


It is sometimes possible to save an infected tree by strategically pruning away affected branches and limbs. Thinning the crown of a tree improves airflow, which can be very beneficial. If branches are crossing or rubbing together, they should be trimmed so that they don’t fall unexpectedly.
