Proper Tree Cutting :- When cutting a brunches if we leave a stub then that will die back and then insects will start growing on that area and that is very harmful for a tree, we must understand that it’s not like a wound we get often on out hand or finger which heals automatically, so its very important to remember that we seal the area because trees cannot heal and that’s what a professional tree services does, which makes sure every cut you make on a tree there are potential internal problem which may get created if not noticed carefully, so we must minimize the problem by making a proper cut.
Avoid biggest tree pruning mistakes :- Today we are going to have a chat about biggest tree pruning mistakes which gardeners often does , as follows :-
i. The first mistake we do is pruning a tree at the wrong time of the year, which leads to the biggest queries we get from our clients that why the tree is not growing properly , which could be because of it’s not getting the proper sun or it has been pruned at the wrong time of the year. So when we cut it in the off pick time we cut the branches and the leafs with the flower or blooms, which cause problem in tree production system and result is unsatisfactory.
ii. Using Wrong Equipment :- The second mistake we do is we use wrong tool while pruning.At TJA we are always equipped with the right tool, such as basic things we suggest our clients to keep A. Shear pruning blades :- This blade is designed is designed such a way with a hook angle which helps to cut the live tissues very clean cut B. handle shears pruner :- is used cut the dead wood , but don’t use handle pruner blade on live tree because it will damage the tree as it’s good on live tissues.
iii. Cutting Measurement :- We must understand where to cut and reduce the stress of the tree , secondly make sure in most cases cut the opposite format of the leaf bud, that mean buds on the each side of the branch make cut about a quarter or a inch of the bud straight acorss, now while cutting the shrub have a alternate leaf bud make the cut about the same distance and it should look like that it’s creating a angle because it help to form a new branch which goes out and that’s what we want.
