Based on best management practices for tree care, the Municipality of Halifax has adopted a pruning program that would see each street tree pruned every 7 years. Seven years has been identified as the optimal cycle which balances the cost of pruning against the benefits of doing so. The intent of this pruning is to keep trees healthy and safe, and to provide clearance for traffic, sightlines, pedestrians and overhead utilities.
