Pruning is a critical maintenance technique in horticulture and arboriculture involving the careful removal of plant parts. It is a strategic process aimed at removing unwanted, unproductive, or diseased portions of a plant to stimulate healthy growth and development. This practice not only enhances plant structure and appearance but also encourages the production of flowers and fruits.
The science of pruning is based on understanding plant physiology and growth patterns. Plants respond to pruning with new growth, often at or near the site of the cut. Proper pruning can direct plant growth, improve plant health, and maintain a balance between root and canopy size.
