The best time to prune trees is during the early stages of the growing season, when the trunk is still small. You should also cut off the wire basket, leaving the roots exposed. A good tip is to prune every two to three years, once the tree has grown a bit. During this time, you should keep the soil moist, but not soggy. It should be dry enough that the roots grow well, without becoming soggy.
It’s also important to give your tree plenty of room to grow. If you plant a tree close to a house, you can crowd it with more trees, which will limit its size. But you must remember that your tree needs space to thrive. The three-foot space between the trunk and the ground will prevent the roots from stealing nutrients and water from each other. It will also keep the roots healthy. It’s important to mulch your trees, especially if you have young children in the home.
