How to trim a tree without killing it


You may well be tempted to trim a tree on your own. If you have a small-sized tree, this may be possible IF you can find the correct equipment, a little bit of practical knowledge, safety gear and a cutting job that does not involve the use of a step ladder. It's tricky to condense decades of knowledge as well as experience in a few sentences. Nonetheless, a number of the typical slips that our team encounter and also what to avoid are laid out here with these trimming tips:

  1. A stub is left behind just where the limb has been removed. Such stubs can allow decay since trees can not heal them successfully. Instead, cut near to the main tree branch or trunk without harming the 'collar'. Don't trim very close because the cut is going to be slow to mend and foster decay leading to a weakness in the principal limb of the tree.
  2. Cuts are made too oblique to the direction of the branch and bigger than needed. Your pruning snip must be clean and you should aim for the smallest-sized cut face attainable. If you don't, the cut will likely heal over a lot more gradually, requiring additional energy that the tree could certainly make use of in other areas of the tree.
  3. Trees are cut back far too much. This is usually called topping and can certainly spur poor growth supposing that it doesn't terminate the tree. Try to trim back no more than 25% of the overall tree canopy within any one year.
  4. The tree's way too large to trim. Inexperienced people climbing up enormous trees can and does lead to a high risk of an accident and also property damage below and around the tree. Just never do it - call the experts.
