How to Prune Mature Trees


In this video, ISA-certified arborists explain how to properly prune mature trees. In this case, you only want to prune what's absolutely necessary because mature trees do not have the reserves that young trees have.

A basic understanding of tree biology and physiology is crucial to proper pruning – see the STIHL Encyclopedia of Trees for a guide on over 240 varieties of trees and shrubs.

When in doubt, contact a tree care professional. Learn The Top 10 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Tree Care Service by Mark Chisholm, ISA-certified arborist.
