What is the Difference Between Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning?

Here is a simple explanation…tree pruning is performed in order to protect the tree or shrub while tree trimming is done to remove overgrown bushes which prevent the shrub from receiving enough moisture and light. Tree pruning involves removal of dead or loose or infected branches so that the shrub can flourish properly.

We will be using tools that involve shears which are available in two types, hand shears and lopping shears. Hand shears can be held using one hand and is mostly used to remove buds and leaves. Lopping shears have a foot-long handle that’s used to cut thick branches. In case the branches are very thick, instead of shears we may use saws to prune the tree.
