K&J – Ornamental Tree Care Specialists
Ornamental trees need pruning, shaping, and care. It is vital to rotate the pruning of specific branches to avoid the creation of knuckles. Knuckles are what happens when you prune branches in the same spots year after year. Also, different trees have different shapes that they organically grow into. An arborist will know how any ornamental tree on your property naturally grows. Consequently, our arborists will have this in mind when pruning, which will increase the health and longevity of your beloved trees.
With shrubs, there is a similar issue. If the shrubs are pruned using electric trimmers, creating a formal-square-look in the same place each year, the shrubs will only have living growth at the tips. If you look inside the shrub, you will not see any leaves past the exterior. In essence, the shrub is dead inside. If part of the shrub is damaged, for example, if snow falls from your roof and breaks a piece off, the shrub will die. Why? There will be nothing in the interior of the shrub growing to replace the injury due to the repetitive nature of the pruning.
Our pruning techniques promote growth from the inside of your bushes, not only on the tips. If you are looking for tree services in New Haven County, or Fairfield County, Connecticut, give us a call today.
