Pruning and shaping are best done during the tree’s early growth phase. Pruning directs the tree’s growth away from homes and structures to head off future problems. It can also result is a healthier tree with more aesthetic appeal.
Pruning and shaping a tree before it becomes a problem can save headaches and costs down the road. By preparing for the future ahead of time, the tree can become a healthy part of your yard rather than a candidate for removal. Taking proper care of pruning and shaping ahead of time can really pay dividends for the future.
