Vista pruning is selective pruning to allow a view from a predetermined point. Vista pruning is often performed to thin the trees and branches to improve the view, open up skyline, remove the unwanted obstacles, etc. Vista pruning does not always require complete tree removal in the area, it rather allows to cut a "window" in the existing landscape, preserving the natural beauty of the garden. The method's main concern is viability of the trees that have undergone the procedure.
