How to trim a tree without killing it

You might perhaps be persuaded to trim a tree by yourself. Assuming that you possess a modest tree, it might be practical IF you can secure the appropriate hardware, a little bit of knowledge, protective wearable’s and don't require a step ladder. It is hard to sum up many years of knowledge and skill within a handful of sentences.

  1. A stub is left just where the branch has been cut off. Stubs will attract decay because trees can not heal these stubs efficiently. Rather, trim near to the main branch or without damaging the 'collar'. Really don't trim too close because it is going to be slow to cure and cultivate decay leading to a weakness in the main limb.
  2. The tree is excessively big to cut. Untrained folks climbing up massive trees can easily and does lead to a strong possibility of an accident and property breakage below and about the tree. Just never do it - contact the experts.
  3. Cuts are sometimes inclined too far towards the direction of the tree branch and also larger than needed. Your trimming cut needs to be clean and you must aim for the minimum cut face possible. In any other case, the wound will likely heal over a lot more sluggishly, demanding additional energy which the tree could certainly make use of elsewhere.
  4. Trees are sometimes being trimmed back too dramatically. This is usually called topping and can promote weak growth supposing that it doesn't destroy the tree. Plan to crop no more than 25% from the overall tree canopy in any one year.
