Tree Pruning Tips

Trees are an important part of the visual appeal of any neighborhood. They provide relief from the climate, a visual break from the pavement, a softening of the streetscape, and an economic value to private property. Street trees that form large canopies also help define the streetscape and improve the overall image of a neighborhood.

Trees should typically be pruned on a regular basis, in a way that does not disturb the natural proportion of the tree, leads to creating an attractive tree canopy, and eliminates any hazardous situations.
