Pruning involves cutting away, getting rid of, removing. In the case of plants, trees and shrubs, that could be twigs, branches, stems, roots. Basically anything that may inhibit the plant's growth and its ability to produce and flourish. Pruning may also involve trimming what seems like good parts in order to make them even better. Sometimes, the branches are many, but there is little fruit. Pruning is good and beneficial for plant life. We being the planting of the Lord and trees of His righteousness, also need to be pruned, so that we may bear much fruit.
