The Results of Improper Pruning Can be Both Damaging to the Tree and Very Unappealing
Improper Tree Pruning Causes Damage
Pruning can be beneficial and/or harmful to a tree. It is dependent upon when, how, where and why it is performed
When properly done, the benefits include reduced risk of branch and stem breakage, improved health and appearance, increased flowering, and improved clearance for vehicles and people. Improper pruning will harm the tree's health, stability, and appearance. If pruning is not performed, the results are the development of low weak co-dependent stems, bark inclusion and the collection of dead branches.
One of the common defects in trees is the formation of large low limbs. They commonly overextend and break or droop. Once removed they leave a large pruning wound. The removal of these large branches and those half the trunk diameter or larger increases the chance for decay. It also can result in cracks and cavities.
Although some pruning standards allow for as much as 25% of live foliage, this is often too much. The age and species of the tree and size of the branches are some determining factors regarding the amount that can safely be removed. Removal of live foliage from stressed trees should not be done because they need the sugar-generating capacity.
