Tree Pruning Helps the Tree Fit the Space
Sometimes trees that are perfect for the space when planted simply become too big for that space when they reach maturity. You might end up with the difficult decision of what to do about them. Can you train them to fit into their space with proper tree pruning? Or are you just trying to fit a buzzard into a birdcage?
Pruning trees to fit into spaces is an acceptable practice for some trees because of their high tolerance for pruning and their ability to heal and adapt to the alternate forms that we may impose upon them. Indeed, some trees such as fruit trees and dwarf hybrids tend to thrive when pruned correctly. So it is sometimes completely appropriate to manage a tree’s size and form to fit in the space that is available.
Fortunately if you live in Northern Virginia or Central Pennsylvania, you can consult with a certified arborist from Pro Arbor. Invite them to visit your property to see the trees in question. They’ll discuss with you the best strategy for long-term tree care including proper pruning (tree trimming), tree removal, and even soil remediation.
