The Importance of Regular Pruning and Trimming for Your Commercial Property: Pruning (also called trimming) is the practice of removing select branches from a tree. As the most common commercial tree maintenance procedure, pruning is required periodically for all woody landscape trees and shrubs. In forested areas, these plants would naturally lose dead or dying limbs over time; however, trees on commercial properties in Northeast Ohio require proactive pruning to maintain their structural integrity and ideal form.
Each cut when trimming or pruning a tree at your Cleveland commercial property has the potential to inform the tree’s growth habits, shape, and health for the rest of its life. In general, the main reasons for pruning a mature tree are safety, health, and aesthetics:
- Safety: Proper pruning helps trees develop a stable structure that is resilient to future environmental stress, such as inclement weather. Trimming trees at your commercial property for safety could entail removing branches at risk to fall on people or property, or pruning branches that are interfering with utilities or lines of sight in parking lots and driveways.
- Health: Pruning or trimming a tree for health involves removing any dead, broken, diseased, or insect-damaged wood, or removing branches that are rubbing against each other. Trees may also be pruned to increase the amount of light and air that penetrates the inside of the tree’s canopy or the ground below it.
- Aesthetics: Trimming for beautification purposes involves removing select branches in order to enhance the tree’s optimal natural form. Trimming can also be used to stimulate growth or flower production in certain areas, or to enhance the overall beauty of the landscape. Because trees are an important aesthetic component of your commercial property that also influence its financial value, trimming for beautification is very important.
