How to trim a tree without killing it


You may well be tempted to do a bit of tree cutting yourself. In case you possess a small tree, this may well be possible IF you have the necessary tools, a little bit of practical knowledge, safety accessories and do not involve a step ladder. It is certainly tricky to encapsulate decades of training as well as skill in a few paragraphs. That being said, some of the common lapses our team notice as well as the things to refrain from are outlined within these tips:

  1. A stub is allowed to remain where the limb has been trimmed. Stubs do allow rot since trees can not heal these stubs properly. Instead, trim near to the larger branch or without damaging the 'collar'. Really don't cut down too close because it is going to be slow to mend and foster decay leading to a weakness in the main branch.
  2. Cuts are too oblique to the direction of the branch and larger than needed. Your pruning cut should be tidy and you should attempt to get the minimum cut face possible. Otherwise, the wound will repair over a lot more sluggishly, requiring more energy which the tree could utilize elsewhere.
  3. Trees are often being cut far too drastically. This is usually referred to as topping and can certainly stimulate poor growth if it doesn't kill the tree. Plan to trim back no more than 25% of the total tree canopy within any one year.
  4. The tree is way too large to cut. Inexperienced individuals climbing into sizable trees can easily and does cause a very high possibility of an accident along with property damages below and around the tree. Just never do it - call the pros.
