Snip, snip, snip. Getting a haircut is always a great feeling. You start with an overgrown mess of hair with bangs flapping in your eyes, but by the end of the clipping session you look like yourself again with just the right amount of hair removed.
But with sharp scissors and eager scissor fingers, it’s almost too easy to oversnip—removing a bit more off of the left side and then some off of the right side. It takes precision and professional, knowledgeable hands to trim hair just right, especially when it never grows in the same exact way every time.
Just like with a poor haircut, a poorly pruned tree is also very noticeable, with branches sticking out in uneven directions. A badly pruned tree can also look topped off or even completely lopsided.
Pruning is done for many reasons, including enhancing safety, improving tree health and improving tree aesthetics.
And just like a well-done haircut can brighten a person’s face and accent all of the right features — a professional tree pruning job on a commercial property can accent all of the important elements of that space and draw visitors in, offering a positive impression to passersby, employees and clients — and enhancing curb appeal for tenants and residents.
