How often should you prune a tree?
As a general rule, we recommend that mature trees be professionally pruned every three to five years. This gives older trees time to regenerate and prevents your tree from experiencing ‘pruning shock’ – which can affect future growth.
Younger trees can be pruned a little more often – every two years or so – as they are more resilient and vigorous growers and can recover from a hard prune much faster than older trees.
Help! I've pruned my tree myself and am worried I've killed it... can you help?
It depends on what you’ve done – but it’s unlikely that it will die. Trees and shrubs are generally pretty hardy, but in all likelihood, you may have over-pruned your tree and it may be experiencing ‘pruning shock’.
Depending on the tree and how much you’ve cut, it may take several years to recover, so, if ever you are in doubt of your pruning abilities… our best advice is ‘just don’t’. Simply put down your pruning gear and give us a call!
