During autumn, trees are a beauty to behold. You can watch as the leaves change in colour, before finally falling to the ground, giving you the ideal opportunity to assess the bare branches and give your trees a prune before winter sets in.
However, when it comes to pruning (also known as trimming), you need to be careful not to damage the tree or leave it vulnerable to damp or disease. The purpose of pruning is to ensure a long, healthy lifespan for the tree and to remove any dead or diseased branches. By pruning in a certain way, you can cultivate the tree to withstand adverse weather, and also to flower with more vibrance when spring comes around again.
