keith_nuttle We have an old crab apple tree. While there are some dea
limbs in the
tree, a tree of similar size and age recently died and had to be take
Can I prolong the trees life if I take out all of the dead wood an
the suckers OR would it be better to trim some of the larger branches
and let the suckers grow?
keith you really have nothing to lose either way because if you leav
the tree the way it is more like than not it will eventually end u
i would trim out the dead stuff its of no use there and it will onl
rub across parts that are good and maybe cause damage and or disease t
the good parts of the tree. as far as the suckers go i would get rid o
those as well they are just sapping the good from the tree. good luck.
