Trim Touching Tree Branches
One of the things that your tree trimming expert is going to do is to look for branches that rub together. When branches rub together they can cause damage to each branch so professional tree trimmers will trim the least favorable branch. This will free up the space for the other branches to grow in. The great thing is that this will give the tree a larger look and feel as well as increase the overall health of the tree.
Cutting Off Dead Branches
As the spring comes into view you will start to see that branches may not look their best. They might be damaged, cracked or broken. This means that they are not going to be able to grow and that they can potentially fall. These can be dangerous if they fall around your house or a person that might be passing by. Removing the damaged branches will allow the rest of the tree to get the nutrients to go to the healthy areas of the tree. The damaged branches will take up some of the water and moisture that the rest of the tree might need.
Prune Branches that Grow Inward
When you are looking for branches that are not going to make the tree look better then finding the ones that grow in are at the top of the list. Limbs should reach from the interior of the tree and spread to the outer most area of the tree. If you have branches that are growing towards the center of the tree it is best to have them removed from the tree. This will give way for other branches that will grow in the correct location.
Trimming Narrow V Shaped Branches
Lastly you want to look for branches that are branching off from one another but the V shape in between the two are very close together. These close branches do not offer the space that is needed for them to reach their potential. It is best to remove one of them so the other can make a full bloom.
