Different trees and circumstances call for different types of pruning.
Some trees will produce a thick crown with branches going across each other and high winds can cause a sail effect on the tree which can cause a lot of stress on the structure of the tree. If done properly it will improve the appearance of the tree, allowing more light and air through.
Fruit trees need to be pruned regularly. This is to ensure strong growth, removal of deadwood and branches that aren’t producing fruit and encourage vigorous growth of the main stems.
Another reason to keep a tree maintained to a particular height and width is to keep it under control. More often than not the tree has outgrown its location which is the reason why sometimes we are called in to help
