No yard is complete without trees. They make your yard look better, provide natural shade, & a home for birds and other outdoor critters. In order to maintain your trees, it’s important to care for them aside from just watering them. Primarily, you need to be able to trim branches. Trimming the branches helps promote new growth & also helps keep branches away from areas where you don’t want them…like power lines or directly over your house.
When trimming, never remove more than ¼ for the tree’s crown. Also, side branches should be at least 1/3 smaller than the trunk. Most importantly, keep your tools sharp. Sharp tools create cleaner cuts and reduce the change of accidents. You can get more info on techniques and tools at Sherrill Tree.
