The do’s and don’ts of pruning your trees

Blooming tree and houses

Pruning tips from Arbor Hills – Most pruning should be confined to removal of broken, rubbing, damaged or dead branches. Sometimes pruning is necessary to elevate tree branches over a sidewalk, street, roof, or other structure.

Tree thinning: It is generally not necessary to thin a tree out. Some people believe it is good for the tree because more air passes through the crown. This practice is sometimes known as “lion tailing” and can leave the tree open to stress during the hot Nebraska months.
