· Step #1: Before you start pruning, it is essential to decide the fundamental purpose of tree trimming. Do you want to shape it for height or shade? The reason influences the extent of pruning.
· Step #2: Assess the size of the tree and imagine how much you want to trim it? Is it a fully-grown tree or a small one? The bigger the tree is, the difficult it is to prune.
· Step #3: Identify the main branches that form the basic structure (or skeleton) of the tree. Never remove these branches while trimming. Now look at the secondary or tertiary branches that are damaged or affected with insect manifestation. These branches are the first one to be removed.
· Step #4: Thinning of dense branches helps the tree to get proper sunlight. Trim the branches that are crossing each other. Thus, you improve air circulation.
· Step #5: Are there any branches that are growing inward, towards the main trunk? If yes, then trim the branches first. Not only because such branches cause clutter, but they badly affect the health of the tree.
· Step #6: Find out the branches that are causing hindrance in the view from your balcony. Or branches that are blocking the walkway. Or branches that are threatening the electric or telephone cables. Branches that overhang the house or rub the roof are also dangerous.
