Pruner and trimmer in Boucherville
Pruning and pruning are among the best known processes. You might think that pruning and pruning are just synonyms, but they are not. It is true that for each of these techniques, parts of the tree are removed. However, the purpose of one or the other operation differs.
What is different about the tasks of pruning or trimming a tree?
Let's start with pruning. The objective is to keep a tree in good condition. The desire is to make sure that its development goes as smoothly as possible. So, planning is necessary and only essential removals are made. Ensuring the needs of customers remains a priority, but here they relate to the future. It is the effect of the measures taken on the development of the tree after several years that becomes the focus of attention. Every action taken on the tree is then of the utmost importance.
What about pruning now? The focus here is on specific, immediate problems. This is where the need for pruning lies. It may not even be in the best interest of the tree. Let's take a simple example to get a better grasp of the situation. For example, the safety of the electrical grid is very important. When Hydro-Québec's pruners remove tree heads, leaving a result without any elegance, it is safety, an immediate need, that guides them. It then becomes essential to cut branches that threaten to break, since they grow too close to power lines. However, it is perfectly normal that safety should be prioritized over the appearance of a tree. It is therefore not the tree that is protected first; in such circumstances, it is the risk that counts.
