Pruning is selectively removing plant parts such as branches, buds, leaves, flowers, and roots from a plant. Both soft-tissue (herbaceous) and woody plants (trees, shrubs, etc.) benefit from pruning. Pruning is sometimes also referred to as; trimming.
It is some of the most important aspects of maintaining a healthy and presentable plant. Plant trimming might require quite a lot of physical effort, but mental preparation and planning are essential to the success of this crucial skill.
