what is corrective pruning?
Nature has its own way of shaping trees and shrubbery, and for many people, it’s not always the shape or form we think it should be. Corrective pruning allows you to remove the sections of a plant or tree that aren’t growing in the shape we’d like. Examples where corrective pruning are needed include branches rubbing against each other or overhanging limbs and tree branches that obstruct visibility or create unsafe property conditions.
Shrubs that are growing wild or just overgrown are also good candidates for fall and winter pruning. For shrubs, thinning rather than shearing at the top is recommended. Thinning helps to reduce the plants overall size while helping it keeps its overall shape. Thinning will also be important for shrubs in the flowering stage. You just have to make sure that you don’t remove too many stalks or branches. Shrubs that produce flowers, along with flowering trees have already formed their flowers during the fall and winter for the following spring. Make sure your shearing efforts reduce without destroying your trees or shrubs.
