Pine trees are coniferous evergreens that thrive well in Mediterranean climatic conditions. Their evergreen state and corn shape require a little trimming. Occasionally, one might require pruning dead or infected branches to stop infections from spreading. Light trims once per year should be enough to remove the dead and infected branches. It is also important to note that the best time of the year to prune is during the late winter and early spring season. This will enable them to recover from the pruning wounds during the warm spring season. Before embarking on the trimming process, remember, do not cut more than one-third of a new growth to avoid stressing the tree.
How to Trim a Pine Tree
Never cut the branches of a pine to the point of no green. This will make it a dead zone that will never regenerate. An exception can only be made if you plan to discard the whole branch. Finally, remember to cut into the green foliage to keep the tree looking healthy.
