These are visuals from a routine pruning at the EMS Academy in Thiruvananthapuram. The mini-forest is currently three months old. Pruning is required to maintain the structural integrity of the tree. This also helps in ensuring that no harm is caused to humans or the area where the tree is growing. The correct weight distribution of the sapling is kept in check during this process. Pruning is done during the dormant season of the plant's life cycle.
