    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.

    Over-pruning a Lilac tree

    If it ever warms up!Any suckers that do appear are easily taken care of if you are vigilant. Anything up to 30cm away on a small shrub like that, but they can walk more.
