Colorado Blue Spruce


Anonymous added on July 24, 2017 | Answered

My Blue Spruce tree is Mis shaped because the tip of a branch near the top has decided that it would like to grow upwards and is competing with the uppermost vertical tip which is the intended leader. The result is a tree that is lopsided because it is directing its growth energy to the aggressive branch. It is otherwise in good health, continues to grow and a healthy color. Any suggestions? Should I prune back the aggressive branch? Lyle lylebradley@shaw.ca

Yes, in most cases you should prune a branch that is growing in an undesirable direction.

Pruning should be done in winter, while the tree is dormant.
