Pruning practices for trees and shrubs are basically identical, especially if you are dealing with a tree or trees you wish to maintain as a shrub or hedge by pruning. Most trees and shrubs, evergreen or deciduous plants, require occasional pruning; in order to control height, width, to thin branching or to remove dead, or rogue branches that may blemish overall appearance. Mainly because large overhanging branches pose as threats and potential danger to buildings or people.
Pruning its also a method to stimulate flowering and fruiting and it promotes vigorous growth. Also, mature trees seldom require pruning.
