Pruning in height


Height pruning in Alicante, Murcia, Valencia and Castellón.

What is height pruning? It is understood by pruning in height to the task or work of carrying out work on large plant specimens in the heights, mainly trees and palm trees. It is a gardening job that cannot be done on foot, due to the size of the specimens.

Therefore, pruning at height is when specialized equipment and machinery is required, along with the work of trained people such as the arborist or palm tree.

In many cases, gardeners or villa owners try to prune their specimens without the material needed for height pruning or experience necessary, which makes pruning at height dangerous.

Despite having been able to prune the specimens years ago, it is recommended not to attempt it once they exceed an easily accessible height. On these occasions, we recommend doing height pruning with a professional.

Main reasons why pruning is done at height

Esthetic Seeing trees or palm trees with dry leaves is not something visually pleasant, since aesthetically it gives the feeling of neglect or dirt, aspects that we do not want to associate with our chalets or farms.

With height pruning, this can be solved, since the dry leaves are removed and the specimens are endowed with aesthetic balance, so that they improve the landscape.

Balance Another objective of pruning at height is to ensure that the specimens, especially large ones, remain balanced. This means that the weight distributed between the branches is equitable, something that prevents future problems of deviation or unexpected falls of the specimens.

One of the most common consequences in palm trees of the lack of pruning for many years is the deviation or arching of the trunk, caused by the weight of the leaves and fruits. This great weight can even cause the fall of the palm tree and other negative consequences in the environment.

In trees, the lack of pruning can cause one part to grow more than another and this causes an imbalance in the weight of the tree. If the necessary height pruning is not carried out, this can generate an unbalanced growth of the specimen and implies a high risk of falling.

Pruning in height

From a hygienic point of view, pruning in height is also necessary. If the specimens are neglected, there are many insects and animals that can begin to inhabit them.

This happens very frequently in palm trees, because they are chosen by rats to create their nests and live. With pruning at height this problem is solved, since the nests are eliminated and the animals are scared away.

On the other hand, not pruning trees and palm trees at the right time of year causes a greater drop in seeds and leaves, generating dirt in the garden.

Disturbances to buildings or passageways On many occasions, our height pruning service is requested because the branches of your trees or palm trees have grown so much that they are invading terraces, roofs, roads, walks or paths. This creates a nuisance for owners, as well as for people or vehicles that circulate in the area.

For these cases, we recommend performing a comprehensive pruning, and not only remove the branches or leaves that bother. Since this action will make the specimen unbalanced. A good arborist or palm grower will carry out the pruning in adequate height to guarantee that the specimen has an optimal and balanced development, without generating more discomfort.
