  2. I have been asked to cut an apricot tree quite hard as it is getting too big for the garden. Is this something I could do now and how will it responed to hard pruning. ps. no apricots for several years
  3. Hello, I am hoping to get a good sized canopy from this tree (I believe it is a crab apple tree) that will provide some privacy from the over looking house(s). Is there anything I can do? I.e. pruning in a certain way?... I don’t know much about pruning, and when I look at videos/guides online, the wording/talk is very technical and confusing to me. I could do with a trees for dummies or pruning for absolute newbies guide! It also looks like the tree’s canopy is trying to grow tall and thin, so is there something I need to do in particular to spread it out more? Many thanks! GF IMG_4711.MOV
  4. We have a Gingko tree that we planted last year in the Fall. It was a late starter, but has greened up very nicely now - it's a great looking tree. It has started sending up shoots from the base of the tree and I'm not sure what to do. I've always cut the volunteers of other trees to guide growth into the main trunk, not offshoots, but I've also heard not to prune anything in the first year after replanting. Do I pull them? Cut them? Leave them alone? It's about an 8' tree. What's your suggestion? Thanks, very much! Chris
  5. Hi there guys just a quick question about getting new clients, obviously there is the conventional ways like website advertising and word of mouth etc. But I'm looking for anyone with tried and tested less conventional ways of reaching people in need of tree works?
  6. Hi everyone I have a robinia black locust tree in my backyard. Last year in late winter when it was still bare I had part of the tree overhang pruned back due to complaints as it was encroaching the neighbour's property. The tree was pruned back about 10-15% in total on one side. Soon after in spring, the tree threw up suckers everywhere which I managed to control by pulling out of the ground one by one. But I noticed that the canopy did not grow back to the thickness/denseness as before but just thought it was due to the tree sending all its energy producing suckers as a defence mechanism from the pruning. I was hoping the thickness/leafiness would return but it's now the second spring (I'm in Australia) since the prune and the tree, while not producing suckers anymore, has not returned to its original thick lush canopy. There are branches that are still bare - see photo. Does anyone know if the tree has sustained permanent damage due to the pruning or if it'll just take a couple more years to return to its original state? Is there anything I can do to help the tree? Thanks in advance.
  7. Good evening everyone. This is my first time here so please forgive any glaring arboretorial (?) errors. Anyhow, I have got a lovely beech tree in my garden: still very young (planted about 5 years ago) and about nine feet tall. Last year I noticed the main (leader?) branch (like the top part of the trunk if you like) had some shoots in Spring but these never developed. This Spring the situation remains the same: I pulled back on one of the twigs and it snapped, in that brittle way that dead wood does. However, the rest of the tree below a certain level is flourishing and as beautiful as ever. So my question is, will the tree be ok if I leave this leader branch or should I remove it to guarantee the future of my beloved beech?
  8. We have what I understand to be a Gold Crest in our North East facing garden. It is a mature tree, taller than the house. It is on the boundary of our garden and our neighbours removed all overhanging branches right up to but not including the crown. Since then the corresponding branches on our side of the fence have all fallen off. Is it possible that the tree is 'balancing' itself out due to the excessive pruning or is the loss of multiple branches more likely to be due to disease? There are no obvious signs of disease and foliage on fallen branches is green. I can upload photos another time if needed I am just keen for any thoughts sooner rather than later in case I should take urgent action. Many thanks for any advice!
