Trimming a Palo Verde

Crown Reduction and Crown lifting are often needed on the same trees. Our experience has Palo Verde's at the top of the list for these. Often they grow too low, this keeps you from being able to walk close to the tree. So Crown lifting will allow you to work on your tree. Simply remove or Prune the lower limbs until the crown has been lifted 3-5 feet. Then get the Palo Verde under control by doing a crown Reduction. This is done by simply snipping outer branches near the outer edge. You do not want to cut any deeper than 2-3 feet from the outer edge of the crown. Make sure your cuts are at a joint allowing another shorter branch to develop on that growth and not leaving a dead branch protruding (left over dead on the palo verde will turn orange and be an eyesore). Remember you are not hedging it. With about 15-20 snips you should achieve your goals. This is a simple and basic way to do your Palo Verde Tree Trimming by yourself. Good luck, and we are always here for you if you need us.
