Trimming and pruning are excellent aspects of landscaping services. While tree trimming is essentially applied to shrubs and hedges, pruning is meant for tress and shrubs. Both tree services are performed at different times using different equipment to make the garden aesthetic and healthy.
Trimming– Trimming applies to tidying up a small shrub or hedge’s appearance by removing overgrown branches. While pruning focuses on safety and a tree’s health, gardeners usually trim shrubs and hedges for aesthetic purposes. However, excessive overgrowth is harmful since it reduces the amount of moisture and light a shrub receives, so gardeners should trim a shrub at least twice per year to prevent this from happening.
Pruning– The idea behind pruning is to prevent loose or dead branches from harming other plants or people. Removing these branches allows the tree’s flowers and fruit to flourish. Pruning is not meant to stunt growth, but to stimulate the tree. Eliminating diseased or pest infested branches are other reasons gardeners prune their trees. Gardeners also prune if they want their tree to have a particular shape for aesthetic purposes. Two forms of pruning, pollarding and topiary, cause trees to take on unnatural forms. Pollarding is the practice of pruning annually to produce new shoots on an annual basis. Topiary is the art of shaping trees into an animal or geometric shape.
Trimming vs. Pruning– Tree pruning is performed in order to protect the tree or shrub while trimming is performed to ensure perfect growth of the shrub or hedge. Tree trimming service on the other hand is done to remove overgrown bushes which prevents the shrub from receiving enough moisture and light. Tree pruning service involves removal or dead or loose or infected branches so that the shrub can flourish properly. It is also done to give a particular shape to the shrub for aesthetic purposes.
Tree Lacing– Tree lacing is a method of pruning trees so that the tree admits light and air through its canopy or crown. Tree lacing and overall pruning is done for safety, health and aesthetics, according to The Forest Service. It reduces pest problems and dangerous branches. Tree lacing in particular enhances the natural form of a tree, allowing light for plants underneath the tree. To lace a tree yourself, distinguish which tree limbs need removal to thin approximately 20 to 30 percent of its overall canopy.
Tree Thinning– Thinning is the selective removal of live branches to reduce crown density. The center and left portion of the tree to the right has been thinned. Thinning, of various types, is the most commonly-practiced method of pruning on mature trees in some regions. Thinning allows wind to pass through or into the pruned section of the crown, which can temporarily improve durability in a storm or sunlight penetration to the ground. Perhaps the best use of crown thinning in the landscape is to reduce mechanical stress on selected limbs from gravity, wind, ice, or snow on branches with structural defects such as cracks, cavities, and hollows, and on overextended, or long branches.
Tree Shaping– Tree shaping is a method of growing trees into particular shapes and patterns by encouraging branch growth in a particular way. There are the more elaborate methods of interwoven trees that are pieces of art, but it is also a method of making sure your trees remain aesthetically pleasing, and don’t become a hazard to your property as they grow.
