Landscape trees need proper care and management throughout their lives, and one of the most important tree management practices is pruning. When done properly, pruning can improve the health and structure of trees, and provide a safer environment for people, pets, and property. Pruning is more than just indiscriminately removing branches. Proper pruning includes knowing which branches to remove, when to do it, and how to minimize damage to the tree.
Garden tools will last for many seasons if they are maintained properly. Although tools should be cleaned after every use, most gardeners are busy and usually just return them to the shed or garage. Fortunately, neglected tools can often be rejuvenated.
