You might have heard the term “tree pruning” or “tree trimming.” The terms are used interchangeably, but they actually mean different things. Pruning refers to any type of surgery performed on a live tree in order to remove deadwood, shape branches and promote healthy growth.

Trees can be destroyed by storms, but with proper maintenance and trimming, you can stop the damage before it happens. When trees are subjected to high winds, they have a tendency to sway.

Trees can break or fall in high winds because of this movement. Wind also causes damage to property and people when trees fall onto homes or cars parked nearby. In addition, branches that snap off during storms can be dangerous if they land on power lines or other structures (like roofs) that may not be covered by insurance policies. Tree trimming helps mitigate these risks by keeping your tree’s canopy small. That ensures that it doesn’t sway when exposed to strong winds—and small enough that it won’t cause damage, if it does happen.

It is best to schedule a time during the winter months, when trees have entered their dormant phase. A dormant tree is not actively growing. Its branches do not exhibit signs of exposure to a harmful act, such as the removal of one of more limbs. In other words, the pruning does not stunt its growth.

A tree’s seed must take root, before it can become a tall and shade-giving plant. A gardener that is supposed to care for that same plant should exercise great care, when cutting into any of the tree’s roots.
