How do I prune my tree ?

The tree branches are overhanging the house. Can I use a long cutting tool from the ground.

  • Hi Jenny, it depends on if you can reach the branches, and you want to be sure the branches won't fall on the roof (or you) when you prune them off. If they're light enough to not do any damage to the house, then you can definitely prune them yourself. If they're larger, prune any small limbs coming off of the main branch first.

    Hi ! They make a pole saw . They are used from the ground and reach up 16 ft . But it depends on the thickness of the branch . You use it by pulling a cord attached to the pole . Good luck !

  • What type of trees? Pruning at the wrong timecan hurt the trees.

    I'm not sure what kind of a tree it is. It flowered recently with a beautiful scent and now the berries are forming.I can saw the branches over my skylights and was concerned.
