Improper Pruning

Pruning is important process that many landowners undertake in order to shape the growth of their tree, reduce dead material, and remove hazardous branches or growths. Pruning creates a wound on a tree, however, and should be done with careful and meticulous care so that a tree does not become stressed or is not made open to invasion from insects and pathogens that could bring even greater adverse effects.
