What Is Subordinate Pruning
One of the biggest purposes behind tree pruning is trying to get them to grow in the most natural way possible. As in…just like in the forest.
We use a different method of pruning known as “Subordinate Pruning” in order to shorten select leaders or branches in order to encourage the growth of others.
By doing this, we can actually train the tree from a young age (if freshly or recently planted) to grow as naturally as possible.
