Pruning Trees in Winter

Your guide to Pruning Trees in Winter

Pruning deciduous plants in the winter promotes fast regrowth in the spring, as most plants are dormant during the winter. It’s also easier to see the shape of deciduous plants in the winter, since their foliage is gone. For your guide on pruning trees in winter…

For best pruning trees in winter:-

  • Prune on a mild, dry day.
  • Prune first dead and diseased branches.
  • Then remove the overgrown and smaller branches to increase light and air at the crown of the tree.
  • In general, your goal is to keep the branches that develop or maintain the structure of the tree.
  • Cut branches at the node, the point at which one branch or twig attaches to another.

Pruning Pointers

Nature is the Great Pruner because trees can grow too close together causing branches to die as they compete for sunlight and airflow.

Pruning is a necessary part of gardening. Consider these three reasons:

TO THIN

Thinning is about cutting out all dead, diseased, and damaged parts to let in more air and light and enhance its health.

TO REDUCE

In Nature, most plants we grow are in splendid isolation, trying to spread unnaturally fast. Our job is to prevent certain shrubs and trees from outgrowing their position in a yard. Judicious reducing helps plants develop into sound structures without over-stressing their limbs. Also, maximum flowering and bountiful fruit are only possible by pruning.

TO AMPUTATE

It sounds harsh, but severe pruning is necessary to restore older trees and shrubs to better health. Most plants are amazingly forgiving with experimentation. Think twice, cut once, and watch carefully. Your plants will tell you in their own way how to do better next season.

How do we identify Trees | Branch Management

How do we identify trees

How do we Identify Trees

Many types of trees grown in gardens look different from one another, and people become familiar with particular species. Frangipani trees (Plumeria acutifolia) look very different to gum trees (Eucalyptus sp. & Corymbia sp.) and are easily identified by their leaves & flowers.  So how do we identify trees?

For example, how do we identify trees, two species of Stringybark trees which look almost identical. This comes down to the leaf size and shape, and the gumnut size and shape. The White Stringybark, Eucalyptus globulus, has gumnuts clustered together on their stem. These fruits have very short individual stems called pedicels.

The Brown Stringybark, E. capitellata, also has gumnuts clustered onto a stem, however, these fruits have no individual stems, and this type of attachment is called sessile.

The shapes of unopened flowers is also a way in which Eucalypts are identified.

Why do trees have leaves of different shapes and sizes.

Trees (and all plants) have leaves which have evolved to function the best way for the tree’s survival. Trees from hot dry climates such as Australian arid areas have leaves which may hang down. This reduces the amount of leaf surface which is exposed to direct sunlight and helps to keep the leaf cooler. Some Eucalypts have thick leathery leaves which helps reduce the amount of moisture lost through transpiration.

Trees in moist environments such as rainforest areas have larger leaves to make best use of limited sunlight. Larger leaves generally point upwards which funnels water down the stem to the roots. This is important as there is much competition with other plants in crowded rainforests. The leaves of rainforest trees are usually softer to facilitate more water movement through transpiration.

Some rainforest trees may also have compound leaves; many smaller leaflets on a long stem. Leaflets also have a large combined surface area for photosynthesis, but are less likely to be damaged (by wind for example) than a single large leaf.

Trees from cold countries generally have thin needle like leaves or scale like leaves. This shape prevents snow build up which can add large amounts of weight to branches and stems causing breakages. Snow covered leaves also cannot photosynthesise due to blocked light. Many trees from cold areas shed their leaves every autumn and go fully dormant.  How do we identify trees?
