Sibling Rivalry in Trees!

Do you have newly planted or young trees?  Like children, young trees need guidance to live a good life. Here’s a young Norway Maple that was planted 2 years ago and is already in trouble.

The tree’s problem is a lot like sibling rivalry. Too many branches are fighting to be the leader. Mike Chenail, Giroud ISA Certified Arborist, explains that the tree needs training, also known as structural pruning.

Structural pruning is both art and science. Our tree pruning specialists thin out excess branches and create one dominant or central leader around which the remaining branches will grow. Not only will the tree be stronger and healthier, it will have a beautiful shape as it grows.

Do you have young trees? Let your Giroud Arborist take a look and be sure they’re headed for a trouble-free life!
