Tree Trimming Service Manassas VA: Tree Pruning Mistakes To Avoid

A lack of pruning could lead to overgrown trees that could pose severe safety hazards on your property. Even more, overgrown trees look very unattractive, thus lowering the overall curb appeal and value of your house.

Topping should be avoided at all times when pruning a tree. A certified arborist advises against this technique because topping could stimulate secondary growth but with a weaker overall structure. The result is an ugly, dangerous tree that will need to be removed in the near future.

Improper Tree Pruning Tools
Many homeowners make the honest mistake of using the wrong types of tools when it comes down to pruning their trees. Even if you’ve got the right tools, they could be rusty and dull, leading to ragged, ugly cuts that will spread disease. Furthermore, most homeowners can end up using these tools the wrong way, resulting in a severe injury.
