Take a look at your outdoor space right now. Chances are, your trees look a little depressing, but that’s OK. Now is the best time to get accurate insight into the health of your trees by properly inspecting all branches for signs of disease and decay.
Proper pruning is essential for optimal growth, yield and safety. The more wind and light that can pass through the branches, the greater the chance of fruit and flower production. Additionally, you can greatly lower the risk of pathogens and insect infestations that develop during the warmer months.
There are many videos on YouTube that can show you how to make proper cuts – just don’t forget to wear a hard hat and safety goggles… pruning can be dangerous business.
