Tree pruning is one of the best things you can do for the long-term health of your trees and for the overall appearance and safety of your property.

With a little upkeep, your trees will be looking healthy and beautiful for years to come.
The most common reasons for tree pruning
There are four main reasons why tree pruning is an important practice in Toronto:
- Tree Health: If you don’t remove the dead or weakened branches they can become entry points for diseases or pests that threaten the life of your tree over time. Don’t underestimate the damage that one infected branch can have on your tree and for the trees surrounding it.
- Safety: Unhealthy or weakened branches are at risk of falling and causing damage to your property or to bystanders below. As a responsible property owner, you can ensure the safety of your surroundings through regular tree pruning.
- Clearance: The height or spread of a tree will dictate the need for clearance of branches to avoid growing too close to power lines or windows. As a property owner, you may want to also improve visibility by thinning out branches. By applying the proper pruning techniques, it will help maintain the structural integrity of the tree.
- Appearance: Over the years, trees can become overgrown which can diminish the overall appearance of the tree. By maintaining the shape of your trees you can enhance the curb appeal of your property. Think of it as your tree getting a hair cut!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Everything you need to know about tree pruning
Why is it important to prune a tree?
Pruning your trees is like going in for a check-up at the doctor’s office. It’s the best way to maintain the health of your tree and extend its life. Forested trees receive their pruning from mother nature, however, the trees on your property will require more maintenance and an understanding of tree biology to keep them thriving.
When should trees be pruned?
Depending on the type, size and health of your tree, a typical pruning cycle is between three to five years. As a rule of thumb, the best time of year to prune a tree is when the trees are still dormant from the winter. Depending on where you live, that could be any time between November through March–before the springtime arrives.
What’s the difference between tree trimming and tree pruning?
Although both of these tree services may seem quite similar at first, you’ll quickly learn that they require different equipment and techniques–and have different purposes all together! Tree pruning is primarily done on mature trees by removing dead or dying branches to protect the tree’s health. Whereas tree trimming is typically done to improve a tree’s overall aesthetics. This can be done by controlling the direction of which the tree grows or its shape, and by removing any overgrowth.
What happens when you don’t prune your tree?
If trees are left unpruned it can lead to disease spreading throughout the nearby branches and even infect other neighbouring trees. Once a tree is infected with the disease it can result in the death of the tree if the affected branches are not removed in time, therefore it’s very important to help stop the spread of the disease.
What are the safety hazards of not pruning your tree?
Weakened, broken or dead tree branches are at risk of falling and causing damage to your property or bystanders below. As a responsible property owner, pruning your trees is the best way to prevent damage and avoid accidents from happening. Additionally, when a tree isn’t pruned it can become overgrown and become too close to power lines which can cause a major headache and increase the cost of having it removed or pruned.
Should you prune young trees?
Tree pruning is not only reserved for mature trees, but there are also tremendous benefits of pruning young trees. For example, it can help increase the structural integrity of the tree so that it will require less corrective and preventative pruning as the tree matures.
