Over Pruned Tree

Musclebabe added on October 3, 2016 | Answered

We hired a landscaper and he butchered our tree. He cut all the bottom branches and left only the leaves at the top of the the main (heavier) branches. Now when the wind comes up, it's snapping the branches due to the now top heavy branches. Can this be fixed?

This can depend greatly on the type of tree that you are referencing.
Some trees can recover and do well after a rejuvenation prune.
The correct time of year to prune is very important.
Tree pruning for many varieties is done when the tree is dormant.

You can research your tree type on our website for more exact pruning information.
