This spring is going to come early in Victoria BC. Judging by the weather patterns it is now time to start your landscape projects and tree pruning. Like everything else pruning trees can be an overwhelming task. Here are a few tips to get you started. First remember don't be shy, anything growing inward or downward can be taken out. When tipping and shaping the tree remember you want to take approximately 3 to 4 nodes off the top and never too much. When taking larger branches off you must make your cut close to the truck but before the circular notch. Always be careful and if it is too much for you to take on or you have questions or concerns contact a professional.
