Three Methods of Garden Tree Pruning

Three methods of garden tree pruning: cutting, thinning, and tiller removal


In the process of garden tree pruning, master the correct pruning method, and through reasonable pruning, you can cultivate a beautiful tree shape. Tree pruning further regulates the rational distribution of nutrients, inhibits leggy growth, promotes flower bud differentiation, achieves early flowering and fruiting of young trees, prolongs flowering and fruiting periods, and rejuvenates old trees. Garden tree pruning methods are mainly divided into three types, which can be summarized as cutting, thinning and tiller removal. Choose a good garden shear is better for you to pruning tree, save time and save energy.

1. Truncation, also known as truncation, is to cut off part of the branch. Its main purpose is to stimulate the germination of lateral buds, shoot out new shoots, increase the number of branches, and have more leaves and more flowers. According to the degree of short cuts, it can be divided into the following categories:

1. Light and short cut: lightly prune the top of the branch (cut off 1/5-1/4 of the full length of the branch), mainly used for pruning the strong branches of flower and fruit trees. This pruning method stimulates the germination of most of the semi-full buds in the lower part after removing the top of the branches, and disperses the nutrients of the branches, so that the branches of ornamental flower and fruit trees in the garden in the coming year can produce more medium and short branches, which are easy to form flower buds.

2. Middle and short cut: cut to the middle or upper part of the branch with full buds (1/3-1/2 of the length of the pruned branch), mainly used for the rejuvenation of some weak branches and the cultivation of backbone branches and extended branches of various trees.

3. Heavy truncation: Cut off 2/3-3/4 of the full length of the branches. This pruning method has a great stimulating effect and is mainly used for the renewal and rejuvenation of weak trees, old trees and old and weak branches.

4. Extremely heavy truncation: leave 1-2 shriveled buds at the base of the base strip of the tree, and cut off the rest. This method is often used in crape myrtle in gardens.

5. Retraction: It is to cut off part of the perennial branches. Because the tree grows for many years, it is far from the top of the branch, and the base is prone to bare legs. In order to reduce the dominant position of the top and promote the renewal and rejuvenation of the base of the perennial branch, the retraction pruning method is often used.

Second, sparse is also known as sparse cut or sparse deletion. Cut the branches from the meristem, and thinning can adjust the uniform distribution of the branches, increase the space, improve the ventilation and light transmission conditions, which is conducive to the growth and development of the branches inside the crown, and is conducive to the differentiation of flower buds. The objects of thinning are mainly diseased and insect branches, dry branches, and overly dense cross branches.

3. In addition to tillers, remove the twigs or root tillers that grew from the base of the trunk of the tree and near the wound in the same year. Avoid these shoots and root tillers, which hinder tree shape and disperse tree nutrients.
