When to Prune
Tree pruning can be conducted year-round; however, tree service companies recommend evaluating the stress a tree is under before proceeding. Pruning will only add to tree stress. Other causes include insects and diseases, according to the University of Massachusetts Agriculture and Landscape Program. Tree care professionals can kill pests using insecticides. Depending on how far the disease has progressed, the tree may be treated or completely removed.
Tree stress may also be caused by the homeowner. Under or over watering is a big concern. Ask an arborist how to best care for specific tree species. Poor or improper planting may lead to root damage and make the tree unsuitable for pruning. After close evaluation by a tree care professional, homeowners may proceed with pruning.
Things to Remember
If you don’t mind heights, tree pruning can be a do-it-yourself project. If you elect to prune the tree yourself, keep in mind the same rules to successful pruning as the experts do. A visual inspection should work its way from the top to the roots, according to the Arbor Day Foundation. Remove dead or defective branches before pruning for aesthetic appeal, such as a vista pruning, which creates a view through the tree. Painting the results of a large incision will not prevent or reduce decay; however, it will create a more uniform-looking tree.
