In March and April, remove the infested branches, and burn them. this will stop the spread to other areas of the tree.

Title: What are some signs of a Healthy Tree?

By: A. Pasma, 2012-03-06 11:44:48

There are a few things to look for when assessing the health of your tree. Most trees should have one central Leader, this gives the tree strength and stability. Pruning the tree when young will allow for this to be possible. Keep watch for evidence of yearly growth, if the tree is growing that is a good sign it is healthy. You also want to look out for bare patches (year round), wilting, dead or broken branches, or evidence of insects, all of which are signs your trees health is in decline.

Title: Who is responsible for the tree??

By: A. Pasma, 2012-02-25 10:53:37

There was an interesting article in the Toronto Star today outlining the rules when it comes to deciding who is responsible for our trees. If you are considering having some tree work done this year, but are unsure as to the ownership of the tree, and what you are legally permitted to do, have a look at the link below. http://www.moneyville.ca/article/1135589--who-owns-yard-trees-and-who-is-responsible-for-them?bn=1#

Title: Pruning Young Trees

By: A. Pasma, 2012-02-24 11:12:09

After attending a 3 day conference in Kingston, the Owner Adrian Pasma has some inportant information to share about pruning yound trees. The most important time to prune trees is when its first planted and for the first 5 years. This may only take 5 minutes, (which keeps the cost to a minimual). The goal is to create or maintain an dominate leader. ( One trunk that is the biggest and the tallest) This keeps the tree in a normal shape and not wild. Forest trees fight for light and grow straight up. Urban trees planted with light all around create the treee to grow short and wide with multiple leaders. This creates weak points and dangerous areas when mature.
