Today I worked on pruning this pine. It was hard to do because of the height, but I’m happy with the result. The client wanted a topiary look. I was wondering why the top was so thick, and when I poked my head up there, instead of one central leader, there were four! It looked like someone had topped it years ago, and the tree responded with four new limbs. Sometimes pruning just creates more problems! Have you ever had a pruning surprise?
