There is no way your trees would take shape and look beautiful if you don’t take time to maintain them and offer the care they need.According to some scientists, one way to reduce resin flow and minimize sap is by pruning trees during a dormant season. What you may find others saying is that they can prune their trees anytime they want to do so. Most people go for tree pruning to ensure they have reduced risks of tree diseases and that they have enhanced wound closure.
If you have flowering shrubs at home, you should consider having dormant pruning done to them also. However, you could not be doing the wrong thing by pruning the trees or shrubs at any other given time. If your trees or your shrubs have the tendency to blossom immediately the spring occurs, you should prune them once they start to flower. It is good to know that most flowering shrubs and trees are prone to bacterial diseases such as the fire blight. It is important to understand that such a disease would spread more if pruning is done.
Failure to prune the trees when you should, may only mean that the trees will not have the right form and the best shape you wanted them to have. Well pruned fruit trees will not only yield high-quality fruits, but they will also bear those fruits earlier. You would see the lifespan of your fruit-bearing and another type of trees increasing if you paid more emphasis on proper pruning.
Without the right tree pruning, your trees would struggle to develop a formidable tree framework.This framework becomes very important when it comes to supporting the many fruits a tree may bear. One of the dangers of undermining good pruning is that the tree branches may develop upright angles. This problem will lead to breakage especially to the trees with heavy crop or fruits. When breakage occurs in any tree, the worst thing of it is that the tree’s lifespan is shortened and its productivity reduced.
By pruning your trees, you would be giving them an opportunity to develop or form a good canopy. By so doing, your trees would be able to get maximum light penetration and bear more fruits. Trees that get maximum light are known to develop buds in a more healthy way. In fact, light has been known to determine the quality, flavor, and set of the fruits.
