Tree trimming can be difficult, but fun as well, and we are sure you want to enjoy it at least a little bit. Therefore, here are a few tips to trim your trees without losing your mind or putting yourself in danger:
Trim your tree in the ideal time
You can’t trim a tree any time of the year if you want it to stay healthy and in good shape. You must trim your trees in the right season to avoid damaging them more than necessary.
The best moment of the year to trim them is in winter or at the beginning of spring. Why? Because the tree is dormant and have it trimmed while it’s in this state will reduce the damage it receives.
Pay attention to the branches you’re trimming
You can’t trim every branch you see. Make sure that it is less than five or six centimeters in diameter. If you remove a large one, you could ruin the aesthetics of the tree.
Use the right equipment
Don’t just pick a tool and use it in every single branch. If you are trimming small branches, make sure to use a pruning shears.
For those with medium size, use a lopper. And when they are large, get yourself a tree saw. Don’t use, for example, a lopper, to trim all the branches you will remove from your tree.
