What is the difference between tree trimming and pruning?

The objective of trimming is to help the plant, shrubs, and hedges to grow desirably. Many commercial customers trim trees to make their property more appealing to prospective clients. Apart from encouraging healthy growth, trimming also enhances the look of the plant. Pruning, on the other hand, focuses on cutting unnecessary branches that may be rotting or growing in the wrong direction. Therefore, practice helps in checking unwarranted growth.

In terms of tools, professionals use shears, including hand or lopping shears, to cut the branches. In contrast, experts use trimmers and saws while trimming.
