Pruning Pro Tips from Nature Hills Nursery

It's that time of year where we might just need an extra reminder to take care of these year-round beauties. Top reasons to prune your pine trees:

• Remove diseased, crossed, broken, & shaded out interior branches • Tip pruning, aka Candle Pruning, promotes fuller, thicker growth • Improve shape & form and manages wild, uneven growth • Low-hanging growth that may become a hazard • Improve young trees that need training • Encourage a balanced, open canopy • Remove branches growing at a 30 degree angle - weak joints that break in storms • Remove any double leaders that will make your tree prone to wind, snow damage and breakage
