Introducing more light and air into the canopy is vital for the tree’s future well-being. Once again I make no apologies for the tree’s scraggy and a little unkempt appearance. The tree is not being exhibited…..I don’t need immaculate well groomed foliage. What I do need is to retain sufficient strong foliage growth at the tips especially when so much foliage has been removed. This will maintain his health/vigour and ensure a good quick recovery from the work we have carried out.
As always the tree’s continued health and well-being is much more important to me than the final photograph…….and I hope you feel the same way too!
