It’s common knowledge that pruning is essential for a tree to be healthy and pleasant-looking, but aside from these, did you know that pruning is also vital in ensuring the safety of people nearby? It’s because dead branches, especially of big trees, might fall on people, vehicles, electrical cords, and buildings near it.
Moreover, these dead branches may also cause injury to the one who’s pruning it without the proper safety gear and when safety precautions are not followed. For instance, without the proper safety glasses, sharp twigs and flying debris may cause eye injury.

- Keep equipment updated and sanitized
- Weather condition
