Problems and annoyances that you will have if you do not prune your trees
The imbalance in the weight of the trees can cause a serious problem. This is because many specimens suffer from uneven growth of their branches, thus causing one part to weigh more than the other. In these cases, it is essential to prune the tree in order to restore the balance of the specimen, avoiding major problems.
Other annoyances is dirt. That is, trees that do not prune properly or at the right time tend to cause dirt problems, such as: leaf fall, seed fall, etc.
To avoid problems derived from our specimens, we recommend keeping track of the trees, as well as carrying out the necessary pruning.
Experience and professionalism in floor of the following trees
The main function of pruning is to maintain balance in the structure of the tree, because its branches are very heavy and with the passage of time they can deviate the trajectory of these specimens. Our goal is to obtain the proper balance of the tree in order to guarantee optimal and natural growth according to the type of tree, paying attention to those that are fruit trees.

On the one hand, they have generally been used to delimit the boundary of a farm, that is, to separate two different spaces, serving as natural walls. To do this, it is necessary to carry out at least one annual pruning, in order to prevent its uncontrolled growth in order to maintain the desired shape and dimensions of the set of trees (hedge pruning). On the other hand, they can plant the cypress trees alone with the intention of letting them grow naturally into large trees. On this occasion, pruning will only be necessary to cut the protruding branches of the specimen.
The eucalyptus they are pruned so that the tree maintains its balance, since in some cases its branches can grow in almost any direction. For this reason, pruning them can partially control the direction of these branches that can create discomfort.
