As for pruning, this typically involves the cutting away of branches on a plant, normally a tree or shrub, in order to achieve an end goal. This goal can be things like shaping a plant, encouraging new growth or increasing fruit production. How and when to prune plants is normally dependent upon the type of plant you are wanting to prune.
