How to trim a tree without killing it

You may well be persuaded to trim a tree on your own. In case you own a small tree, this might just be achievable IF you can get your hands on the proper hardware, a little bit of expertise, safety accessories and do not involve a step ladder. It is very difficult to sum up years of knowledge as well as practice in a several glib sentences. Nonetheless, some of the typical errors our staff encounter and the things to refrain from are outlined beneath with these tips:

  1. A stub is left where the tree limb has been removed. Stubs will certainly allow rot as trees can not heal these properly. Rather, cut near to the main branch or trunk without damaging the 'collar'. So don’t trim too far from the bigger branch and don’t trim very close either. The latter wound will certainly be slow to heal and foment rot leading to a weakness in the principal branch.
  2. Cuts are very oblique to the direction of the tree branch and larger than needed. Your pruning snip should be tidy and you have to attempt to get the smallest cut face feasible. Otherwise, the cut will repair over much more gradually, requiring more energy which the tree can make use of in other areas of the tree.
  3. Trees are pruned too severely. This practice is usually termed topping and can certainly spur weak growth in the event that it doesn't finish the tree for good. Try to trim no more than a quarter out from the total tree canopy in any 1 year.
  4. The tree's too sizable to trim down. Unqualified people climbing into sizable trees can and does lead to a strong chance of injury and property damage below and about the tree. Simply do not do this - phone the pros. Call Tree Top Pros.
