If you take care of your own garden, then you’ll most likely have pruned many plants and shrubs. Of course pruning isn’t only done to control size, but instead, it’s an important tool for people who like to grow some of their own food. Failure to prune can result in a shorter period of productivity, and it can also result in a loss of quality.
A person maintaining there own vegetable patch and herb garden would be a prime example. Basil for instance will want to flower at the height of the growing season, and will need to be pruned constantly in order to prevent flowering. Once flowers start to appear on your basil plants, the leaves will lose a great deal of their flavor, but more importantly, the plant will then produce seed, and die shortly after that.
Pumpkins are another vegetable requiring regular pruning. If you fail to prune them, they put too much energy into growing bigger in vine size, and as a result, you end up with very few pumpkins. These are just two examples, but of course many other plants are the same, but at least these are all very easy to prune.
Large fruit trees are of course a different thing altogether.People living in the tropics can attest to the fact that some fruit trees grow so tall, it becomes almost impossible to harvest the fruit. One fast growing fruit tree that comes to mind is a Jack Fruit tree, which can reach 30 or 40 feet in only a few years, and if you’ve ever seen these fruits, then you’ll agree that it’s best to not be picking them at such a height.
When it comes to these large trees, it’s definitely recommended that you use professional tree pruning services. These people know just how to prune trees correctly, including fruit trees, which will almost always result in increased productivity. When you prune your own trees, you risk having them grow into something like you’d expect to see in some kind of dark horror tale. A properly pruned tree, on the other hand, will most likely look far better than a tree of the same species which hasn’t been pruned.
Professional tree pruning services will usually also of a stump removal service. If you have recently cut down a large tree, or maybe a few trees, then this can be a very useful service. If your intention is to plant more trees to replace those which were felled, then the chances are you won’t want to wait for the stumps to decompose. Furthermore, some trees actually get very annoyed when you cut them down. Instead, they simply begin producing new shoots, and of course, their root systems grow even bigger.
The problem with stumps is not always the stumps themselves, but their roots which can interfere with nearby structures. Don’t forget, however, if space is limited, then stump removal can call for a considerable amount of manual labor. In a nutshell, if you have a need for stump removal, or you need some trees pruned, your best bet would be to use professional tree pruning services.
