Tree Trimming Keeps Your Trees Healthy

Pruning or tree trimming is a silvicultural and horticultural practice including the selective removal of parts of a plant, such as buds, branches, or roots. Specialized pruning methods may be used to particular plants, such as roses, fruit trees, and grapevines. Different pruning methods may be deployed on herbaceous plants than those made use of on perennial woody plants.

Garden enthusiasts, orchardists, and arborists utilize various garden tools and tree cutting tools designed for the function, such as hand pruners, loppers, or chainsaws. In nature, meteorological conditions such as ice, snow, and wind, and salinity can cause plants to self-prune. This natural shedding is called abscission.

In general, the smaller the branch that is cut, the easier it is for a woody plant to compartmentalize the wound and hence limit the potential for pathogen intrusion and decay. It is, therefore, preferable to make any necessary developmental structural pruning cuts to young plants, when possible, instead of eliminating big, badly put branches from fully grown plants.

While they do not need as much care or regular upkeep, palms are considered one of the most costly and luxurious possessions on a property. It is essential that these trees are effectively maintained to prevent needing to change them or needing to deal with unsightly litter. With the up coming to Monsoon Thunderstorm Season, another problem lies in the thatch and weak leaves which tend to be swindled during storms and scattered about the landscape afterward. It is also highly recommended that the palms receive deep root fertilizing this month, which helps keep them healthy and protects them from difficult conditions during the Summertime. Here’s added information for specific genus & species:

Palm Trees Need Trimming

Date Palms

If they have not already, all date palms will certainly be producing fruits; consisting of the basic Date Palm, Dwarf Date Palm, & Canary Islands Date Palm. These fruits have the tendency to stain the rock & concrete below them, can be quite messy, and can draw in pests such as roaches & roofing rats. Additionally, the longer the wait, the bigger and heavier the dates end up being, making clean-up and transporting more costly and hard.

Mexican Fan Palms

Pruning after June 15th has the tendency to make seed shell collection much easier and quicker.

California Fan Palms

These should be trimmed after the 15th of July to ensure all of the seed sheathings are eliminated in a single cutting. If you don’t want to deal with all of the yellow pollen up until July, you may have the trees pruned previously, however they will need extra trimming later on in the year (around August) to get rid of the remainder of the seed cases.

Queen Anne Palms

Seed husk production starts around June 1st, and the seed husks produced by Queen Palms continue to emerge through the Fall as well as Winter season. As with the California Fan Palm, the longer one waits to prune the seed sheaths, the more there will certainly be to remove, so it’s best to remain on top of their elimination throughout their production.
