Mature Tree Pruning

Mature tree pruning
When pruning 
mature or established trees there are three primary objectives: 

  1. To reduce conditions in the tree that contribute to weakness such as heavy, cracked, decaying, and dead branches or trunks. 
  2. Tmaintain and ensure proper tree structure by guiding future growth 
  3. Tmaintain or provide clearance from buildings or other objects which can be obscured or damaged by limbs in the upper canopy. 

For more information on pruning mature trees visit the lnternational Society of Arboriculture consumer website.
