This can be beneficial for you in many ways. It can be very cost effective in that you don’t have to purchase another plant, which can be very expensive. It is also good for your landscape because the plants are already accustomed to your soil and the ph of your landscape. This means that there will little to no time for your plant to take root and flourish once again.
When to Prune
Depending on what you want to accomplish, there are different times that are best suited for certain kinds of pruning. Pruning dead or weak limbs is okay at any time of year. Generally, it is best to prune just before spring in order to maximize growth. During active disease transmission periods, it is important that you wait to prune. This is because the open wounds will leave the tree susceptible to contracting the disease.
The techniques for pruning vary and are typically chosen based on the kind of pruning that you are doing. Thinning branches is a technique that involves removing branches selectively for the betterment of the tree’s growth. This helps to train the tree so that they will require less and less pruning as they get older.
