Wintertime is the best time to trim shade trees. The one
above on the left is the wrong way to trim a tree. It has a bad
crotch only 3 ft from the ground, and limbs lower than 7 ft from the ground.
The tree on the right is trimmed correctly, single trunk, with no limbs 7 ft
from the ground. We can trim your trees properly this winter or advise you
how to do it if you send us a picture of it.
Above picture is a serious problem with windbreaks in Iowa and
everywhere. Unwanted trees (Mulberries in this case) growing up among the
evergreens. These will eventually kill your evergreens if not taken out.
Wintertime is the best time to remove them. Be sure to treat the stump
with Roundup so they do not grow back. NEVER use Tordon, Garlon or
any other chemicals on the stumps or around your evergreens as it will KILL
your evergreens. We can remove them for you this winter, or advise you on
the proper way to do it.
If you are thinking of a windbreak jump right over to
our site we have for them:
