    The Importance Of Proper Pruning Of Trees

    Great article ... only two things to add - always think safety before pruning anything. And always take you time. I see so many branches being hacked off with impatience so leave long term damage.

    Really good to know, Pete. I have been spraying them daily. The temp at my windowsill is 10degrees. The room was 14 degrees this morning. I'll spray them several times a day from now on. Thanks

    Pruning a new ginko

    My guess would be it would be OK to do it now. Or a bit later if you prefer. Just wouldn't do it after January.

    Stag Horn Tree

    Usually in my experience, if the leaves fall naturally, the plant is still alive. If they shrivel and stay attached the wood is dead.

    Grafted wisteria tree

    Got to agree with @Sian in Belgium the support will never take the weight of a wisteria. The archway you show would be much better.

    Acer, can I move it?

    You can cut half the roots back now. I'd not like to comment regarding the pruning, sounds a bit drastic to me, but some pruning would be good before the move.
