When is the best time to prune trees?

Summer is the best season to remove dead branches that are visible. Spring-flowering trees and shrubs should be pruned as soon as they finish flowering in the spring.

Trees and shrubs that blossom in the summer and into the fall should be pruned in late winter or early spring, as soon as their annual growth begins. This applies to both your trees and your indoor plants.

Why is pruning important?

Pruning a tree can influence how it grows. A tree’s limbs and branches can be pruned to form a certain layout that is beneficial for the tree’s structural stability. Maintaining the tree’s structure decreases the likelihood of broken limbs and falling branches.

Pruning bushes into shapes?

Tiopary is the practice of shaping your bushes. Topiary is the horticultural discipline of teaching perennial plants to produce and retain clearly defined shapes by cutting the foliage and twigs of trees, shrubs, and subshrubs. When the bush is young, especially before it reaches 2 feet in height, prune it into a basic shape. This may be an oval or square that can subsequently be trimmed into more sophisticated designs, or a cone that can stay a cone or be taught into a spiral.

Can you prune too much?

Although over-pruned trees and shrubs normally do not die if some of the canopy remains, the harm from over-pruning can be substantial. Over pruning may eventually result in branches that are too weak to withstand wind or ice loads, or the plant may simply exhaust itself trying to renew its canopy.

How often should you prune?

Pruning less of the plant but more regularly is by far the best way to improve its overall health. We recommend doing it every other month, or five times a year. This is the ideal time to prune, since it will maintain everything looking and working at its best.

When should I consider removing my tree?

Internal degradation is indicated by vertical fractures, seams, dead branch stubs, and massive, older lesions.

When termites have hollowed out a tree, it must be removed. However, any damage to the main trunk usually demands the removal of the tree.

If the damaged area is less than 25% of the radius of the trunk, the lesion may gradually heal up with no permanent damage. If you want to save the tree, you should seek the advice of an expert.

Tree removal should be considered for any dead branches that could fall and cause damage to the property or be dangerous. Please contact a tree removal specialist if a tree is leaning.

How far should a tree be from a property?

Trees should be about 10 meters away from your house to provide the most helpful shade at a practical distance.

Smaller trees can be planted closer together. Generally, you don’t want trees too close to your house because they can produce a variety of problems that can be disastrous. While trees may provide some shade for your property, which can aid in temperature regulation. However, trees can cause serious foundation damage by raising the structure.

Which trees are the best options to plant?

  • Heteropyxis natalensis also known as a Lavender Tree
  • Kiggelaria africana also known as the Wild Peach tree
  • Buddleja saligna many know it as the False Olive tree
  • Dais Cotinifolia also known as Pompon Tree
  • Apodytes dimidiata the White pear tree
  • Pittosporum viridiflorum better known as the Cheesewood tree

These are the most popular options for property trees in South-Africa.

What is the fastest growing tree to plant in your yard?

Olinia ventosa is one of South Africa’s fastest growing trees and a popular choice for your backyard. It can reach a height of 25m. It is renowned as a forest pioneer and one of the quickest growing indigenous trees. It is only found in the Western and Eastern Capes of South Africa.

Baobab Tree

The most common tree in South-Africa

Where did the Baobab tree originate?

In South Africa, the Baobab tree is the most prevalent and well-known tree. The name Baobab [Adansonia digitata] was given by tribes around the Zambezi River.

Other names for this tree include boab, boaboa, tabaldi, bottle tree, and monkey bread tree. The upside-down tree is another name for the Baobab Tree.

The god Thora is mentioned in an African bushman mythology. He disliked the Baobab growing in his garden, so he flung it over the wall of Paradise onto Earth below, and despite landing upside-down, the tree continued to grow.

It’s not unexpected that such a strange-looking tree is associated with superstitions.

Where do you find these trees?

Baobabs may be found in Africa’s belts. Madagascar, India, Sri Lanka, and Australia are also home to them.

Boab trees can be found across Zimbabwe. They are located in the Northern Province, between the Limpopo and Zoutpansberg mountain ranges. Messina is, in fact, a city of Baobabs.

There is a well-known ‘halfway Baobab’ between Louis Trichardt and Messina from which many have drawn. This tree seem to prefer hot, sandy plains.

What makes Boabab trees so special?

For good cause, the baobab tree is renowned as the “tree of life.” It can offer animal and human occupants of the African savannah regions with shelter, clothes, food, and water.

The cork-like bark and massive stem are resistant to fire and are used to make linen and rope.

What does a Boab tree look like?

Baobabs are small to big deciduous trees with broad trunks and compact crowns that live for a long time. Young trees have slender, tapered trunks that are often swollen at the base.

The trunk is formed of concentric rings of fibrous wood. They have distinctive barrel-like trunks and are well-known for their exceptional longevity and ethnobotanical significance. According to an Arabian tradition, “the devil plucked up the baobab, thrust its branches into the earth, and left its roots in the air.”

When to trim a Baobab tree?

Pruning causes the bulbous trunk form to develop faster than if it is not pruned. The best time to prune your baobab is towards the end of summer, when there are still plenty of leaves on the branches. The leaves aid the baobab in drawing water from the pot.

Top Tree Safety Tips for Thunderstorms

Have the right types of trees
If you live in an area where storms are common, you should think about the types of trees you plant. Some species are more resistant to strong winds and moisture than others.
Some of the top choices are Austrian pines, bald cypress, red oak, red maple, linden, and autumn blaze maple trees.
While the type of tree is important, it is even more important that the trees you have be healthy and well-maintained. When it comes to strong storms, keeping your trees properly hydrated, pruned, and nourished will help more than anything else.

Keep Your Trees Healthy
Taking care of your trees on a regular basis, rather than simply when they are sick or in decline, is one of the most important things you can do for them.
Make an effort to maintain a consistent routine for your trees. This involves watering them properly and on a regular basis, pruning them as needed, and fertilizing them if necessary.
Trim Your Trees Regularly
Pruning your trees should not be limited to when you have damaged and/or dead branches. When you start doing this when the trees are young, it will help them stay strong and withstand large storms when they are needed. Pruning, in addition to removing weak and dying branches, helps in the healthy structure and growth of your trees. Furthermore, trimming your trees on a regular basis can assist shape them and make them more resistant to weather-related damage.
Protect the Roots
The roots of your trees are important for keeping them strong and stable, which is why they’re sometimes referred to as the tree’s “anchor.”

Make sure the area around your trees is heavily mulched to keep the roots of your trees as strong as possible. This will ensure that the tree’s roots get enough moisture and nutrients to keep it safe in the ground. Make sure the mulch isn’t too high up the trunk, as this will hinder air and gas exchange.
