How to trim a tree without killing it

You might be tempted to trim a tree yourself. If you possess a small-sized tree, it might just be feasible IF you own the appropriate tools, a little bit of information, protective gear and the job does not necessitate a step ladder. A few of the frequent lapses our experts observe as well as just what to abstain from whilst working on your tree are outlined in these trimming tips:

  1. A stub is left behind where the branch has been cut off. Stubs will attract rot as trees can not repair them efficiently. Rather, trim near to the primary tree branch or without harming the 'collar'. Do not cut too close since the cut will certainly be sluggish to mend and cultivate decay leading to a weakness in the primary branch.
  2. Cuts are sometimes way too oblique to the direction of the tree branch and larger than needed. Your trimming snip must be clean and you ought to try for the smallest cut face possible. Otherwise, the cut will likely heal over much more gradually, involving more energy that the tree could certainly utilize elsewhere.
  3. Trees are sometimes cut back way too dramatically. This is usually termed topping and can spur weak growth supposing that it does not kill the tree. Try to trim no more than 25% of the total tree canopy within any one year.
  4. The tree is excessively big to trim. Unskilled people going up large trees can easily and does trigger a very high danger of a personal accident and property breakage below and about the tree. Simply do not do this - call the professionals.
