This leaflet aims to provide practical advice on the high pruning of broadleaved trees.
The aim of any form of pruning is to produce a single straight stem of at least 6 m in height. Formative pruning is carried out on young trees up to 3 m tall.
As with every successful project the key is clarifying your objectives and then doing your research.
