Improper tree trimming can result in diseases and insects to come in the tree branches. Proper trimming should always be applied so that the branches can heal properly.
While you can remove smaller more manageable branches, but when it comes to larger limbs and branches, better call the experts since this branches can be heavy and may be hazardous for you to take care on your own.
The best months to trim trees are during the autumn and winter months since it is easier to access the branches while there is less sap may be lost during this time, which can reduce the stress given to the tree.
When removing branches and limbs, begin with the smaller ones and remove them in segments. When it comes to larger limbs, better remove them in three segments. The first cut should prevent the bark from splitting and should be done at the bottom of the limb. The second one should be done a few inches from the notch and should be done all the way through so that when the third cut is made, the branch will not create an uneven weight which could result to splitting. The branch collar’s angle should be followed when cutting the last one.
