TREE. TRIMMING

General Tree Trimming Tips

www.moeslawncarenorfolk.com


It’s almost always best to trim or prune a tree during its dormant season. Although you can technically prune a pine tree at any time, it is still better to do so when it is dormant. The only exception is when a hazard exists.

Be conscientious about the size of the branch that you are going to remove. If it is less than five centimeters in diameter, removing it is fine. If it is between five and 10 centimeters in diameter, you might not want to do it. If it is more than 10 centimeters in diameter, you should only do so if you have a really good reason.

Only trim branches that have weak, V-shaped, narrow angles. Retain branches that have strong, U-shaped angles.

>Lateral branches should be between one-half and three-quarters the diameter of the stem at point of attachment. Otherwise, they should be removed.

When pruning is complete, the ratio of living crown to tree height should be two-thirds.

Try to prune away branches when they are young. They are much easier to manage at that point, and the risk of leaving nasty scars is much lower.

Don’t trim a branch too close or too long. You shouldn’t leave a large stub or remove the branch collar . www.moeslawncarenorfok.com
