X-treme yard Makeover III: Cinderella yard now cleared of nearly everything

By Harriet Howard Heithaus, Naples Daily News, Posted June 6, 2008

Trees are not planted with an idea of how tall and how wide they will be at maturity. Nor are they pruned at the optimum time to be trained.

 

“A lot of people wait till the tree is way out of control to prune it. By then the pruning is so involved that it stresses the tree,” explained Ian Orlikoff of Signature Tree Care of Naples. He had just come down from a bucket-truck perch, from where he sawed off chunks of the yard’s 50- foot-tall eucalyptus tree. It had towered over and branched into power lines along Trail Boulevard.

When the tree is young — even within three years of its purchase as a sapling — is the time for professionals to be shaping it for a good structure, he emphasized, “but that’s when people least think of pruning it.”
