The right pruning techniques can improve the health and appearance of your trees, bushes and shrubs. It is important to know the best time of year and pruning methods to obtain the results you desire. Pruning trees or shrubs at the wrong time of year or incorrectly can do more harm than good. At Woodburn Landscapes, we are experts at pruning trees and bushes to improve their shape, size and health, including using deep pruning methods. If you need pruning services in the Atlanta area, we can provide the expertise in landscaping services you need to shape and manicure your landscaping.
Pruning is used to remove unwanted material from plants, shrubs and trees. The four “D’s” are removed – diseased, damaged, dead or deranged – to improve the appearance and health of the plant. Pruning can keep your landscaping plants the shape and size you want or improve the health of the shrub or tree. To protect the tree or plant from disease and other damaged, pruning needs to be performed at the right season for the specific species. This is usually shortly after the bush or shrub blooms, or many non-blooming trees are best pruned in late fall or early spring. Our crews know when best to prune and use the right equipment and techniques for excellent results.
One specific pruning method for thinning out thick bushes, shrubs and trees is deep pruning. We use this technique to remove damaged or diseased branches to allow more light to reach the inner portion of the shrub. Deep pruning is used to improve the health and shape of older shrubs but can also be used occasionally on younger bushes to maintain better health.
Pruning your trees and shrubs keeps them beautiful and healthy. Our team at Woodburn Landscapes uses hand-pruners and battery-operated shears for zero-emission pruning. Contact us in Sandy Springs to schedule pruning or deep pruning for your landscaping.
