Stop butchering your trees. There is no need to “hat rack” them….Just because they are fashionable on Rodeo Drive or in Bal Harbour doesn’t mean it is practical!
No need to have the gardener “chain saw” your trees into elegant hat racks! This type of tree trimming serves no purpose and weakens the newer limbs that emerges each spring. Winds can cause breakage and the “never” ending healing of each seasonal “butchering” can leave them susceptible for insects to bore into areas that have not healed. Hire a certified arborist to do your trimming for you. Actually, trimming need only be done every 2-3 years for maintenance and thinning out rampant growth that may over hang building structures or power lines. Hire the right person for the right job. For the latest in pruning and tree trimming check out your local certified arborists or contact projectgreenscaping for questions and suggestions.
