  2. Cuts are too inclined towards the direction of the branch and larger than necessary. Your pruning snip needs to be clean and you must try for the minimum cut face possible. Otherwise, the cut will likely mend over more sluggishly, demanding more energy that the tree could make use of in other parts of the tree.
  3. Trees are trimmed far too radically. This is usually called topping and can certainly encourage poor growth supposing that it doesn't destroy the tree. Try to crop no more than 25% of the total tree canopy in any one year.
