It Makes Them Healthier
When you prune away dying or infested branches, it prevents the insects or other organisms that are harming those branches from infecting the rest of the tree. That can save the tree’s life, and save you money on a replacement.

You can prune trees in such a way that either promotes new growth or suppresses unwanted growth. Get rid of any parts that are overgrown by pruning them aggressively, and promote new growth by pruning more sparsely.

It Makes Them Safer
Pruning can keep low-hanging branches from becoming too large and hazardous. On smaller trees, it can keep the foliage from blocking a sidewalk or growing in a way that rubs and damages other foliage.
