Cutting of branches from a tree should be properly done to obtain a great outcome. Knowledge of the tree specie is also a necessity in considering manual trimming. Trees of bigger sizes should be done by professionals. Budgeting should be set aside when safety is at risk. Trimming of trees also comes with timing; some flowering tree should be trim within 3 weeks after they bloom. This is because most flowering trees blossomed the year before they bloom.
Proper place of cuts in the tree’s branch is a common mistake for gardeners. People who are novice in cutting tend to leave a big stump when eliminating branches. Disease pathogens and pests can inhabit the insides of the tree when the stub is left behind and dies off.
When cutting of a branch, take on the underside with 6 inches to 1 foot where the junction of the branch and the trunk is located. By having this distance, the cut will not create a possible rip on the tree and the cut should not be deeper than one-fourth of the branch’s diameter.
Begin the second cut on top of the branch, thus, creating a distance from the first cut. Use the saw tool to cut all the way to the branch. Because of the first cut, the branch will fall without any swinging.
Other reminder should be “never do the trimmings when it involves big branches!” just give the job to the professionals.
