I am ready to remove the tree suckers from my live oaks in the backyard. But I wanted to know how high up should I remove them off the tree and can all of them be removed?
When pruning trees with regard to tree health, specific goals should be set with regard to a specific plant. For instance, we commonly recommend pruning oak trees to remove dead, diseased, or broken branches to a certain specification such as one inch in diameter and larger. In addition to this, some canopy raising may be necessary, but the interior foliage including sprouts should be left intact as a general rule. If you wanted to remove sprouts from the lower stem of a tree, keep it minimal and remain below six feet high on the stem. If you would like to set up an appointment, please do so for more specific feedback.
