Pruning is an operation that consists of cutting certain dead or living branches (limbing) from a tree to direct or limit its development1. The term pruning is also used for ornamental arboriculture. A distinction is made between silvicultural pruning, fruit pruning and ornamental pruning.
Pruning can also be a natural biological process that involves the abandonment of branches or a part of the crown (crown descend) in order to maximize the tree's energy and resources. This is called natural pruning. It can be understood as a process of selection of the branches of a tree without human intervention, due to climatic events, by lack of light or water, and/or by the action of specialized saprophytic fungi.
