Did you know pruning can limit damage from storms?

That’s right. Regular pruning of trees can minimize the chance of branches breaking during a windstorm or bringing the entire tree down.

Crown thinning allows wind to blow through the branches, which reduces resistance and lowers the chance of damage caused by breaking branches.
