Pruning a tree refers to the act of getting rid of certain branches. You may need to prune a tree for several reasons. The first part of the tree pruning process is figuring out what you need to do. Before you even start pruning make sure that the tree needs it and you want to find the main branch of the tree.
Once you have an understanding of the tree that you are pruning you can start the cuts. The first cuts that you want to make are on bad branches. Bad branches are going to be the unhealthy ones or the ones that are putting the health of the tree in danger. Next, you want to locate competing branches.
