Pruning has many different objectives from managing risk to improving aesthetics and Progressive tree care strongly adheres to the ANSI a-300 guidelines.
Managing risk is important and can be as easy on some trees as just removing dead wood to structural pruning of large limbs to limit stress or prevent failures that could damage homes or property as well as its inhabitants.

Pruning improves branch and trunk architecture; promotes or subordinates certain leaders, stems, or branches; promotes desirable branch spacing; promotes or discourages growth in a particular direction (directional pruning); minimizes future interference with traffic, lines of sight, or infrastructure, or other plants; restores plants following damage; and/or, rejuvenates shrubs.
Managing size and shape is usually the objective when a tree has outgrown the area where its growing or has been surrounded by structures or utilities requiring pruning to sustain the tree while allowing it to remain healthy.
this is done by selective pruning a tree so that is pleasing to the eye yet without over pruning the tree and damaging it. This usually involves mitigating some risk as well since this kind of pruning often includes removing, moss, Vines, and all the dead wood in the tree.
Progressive tree care does not involve in unacceptable pruning processes, such as Lion's Tailing which is the removal of an excessive number of inner, lateral branches from parent branches, or topping which is the reduction of a tree's size using heading cuts that shorten limbs or branches back to a predetermined crown limit.
