Pruning – How less than 30 seconds can change the life of your tree

Tree Protection Supply will be posting informational how to videos on tree care.  We hope this series of videos will help landowners and land managers get the most out of their planting investment and help tree planters make a big impression when their client’s trees are outgrowing their neighbors. We can all admit it, everybody likes to look over the fence and say “Whats taking your trees so long? Mine are 3 times that big!!”

We hope by watching these videos that it will spark more questions and allow us to provide more answers to our clients. Our first video post is on why its important to prune your planting stock at the time of planting and demonstrates the problems associated with not pruning your trees when they are planted and tree tubes are installed. Even if you are not installing tree shelters, these problems will exist for those trees left out on their own.

We have chosen to make this our first video as most people have already planted their trees for the year and so its too late to prune at the time of planting all those crabapples, persimmons, walnuts, apple trees and other hardwood species. In case you didn’t prune or thought why take the time, take a moment to see how 30 seconds can change the life of your tree and how that small amount of time will create a healthier and larger tree faster!!!

We all know trees will grow themselves, but why wait??

Thanks for Watching,
