    Ted Szczawinski, NJ Certified Tree Expert, says these are the factors that effect long term plant health and structure:

    • Age (juvenile, mature, or senescent)
    • Condition (poor, fair, or good)
    • Genus and Species (conifer, deciduous, or evergreen)
    • Growth form/habit and characteristics (fruit, flower, trait)
    • Purpose in the landscape (ornamental, shade, screening, fruit)
    • Perspective of person conducting the pruning (amateur or expert)
    • Timing of pruning (actively growing, transition or dormant)
    Do you know any others?
