Pruning your trees

Green (Living) Review

For some fruit trees, however, the time to do any real pruning and cutting back is not that time of year but much earlier or somewhat later. Trees of the prunus species, cherries, plums, damsons, and related, should be pruned – pardon the almost pun – while the sap is rising, after they have flowered. While that may reduce any fruit production for that year it is r4eckoned to reduce the risk of any infection entering the tree.

Sycamore tree and Sycamore wood

Green (Living) Review

Sycamore (Acer pseudoplantanus) (in the USA called Sycamore maple) is a very underrated and undervalued tree and wood in Britain where it is continuously referred to as a non-native species and some call for its eradication. Sooty bark is, however, fatal for the tree once it has been affected. On the European mainland, especially in Germany, where it is called “Mountain Maple”, Sycamore is regarded as a noble timer tree and highly valued.

We need more trees

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) More woodlands, properly managed – oh dear, the dreaded “m” word, as far as many misguided environmentalists are concerned, I know – is what we needed, and also more trees in other locations. But mention the word management and those those above mentioned environmentalists will scream blue murder and dare you say that trees will be cut, even under proper coppice management, they call it slaughter. trees woodland management woodlands

To tree or not to tree, that is the question

Green (Living) Review

Often it is reckoned that a real tree is better than an artificial one for reasons that the latter is made from oil-based materials, often, and thus has a serious impact on the environment. Natural Christmas trees, however, also are not without an impact on the environment and the Planet. Far from it and especially the “Christmas tree farms” are a problem to the environment in that they, more often than not, are the wrong kind of trees in the wrong place.

Pruning Old Apple Trees

Green (Living) Review

It’s the time of year to prune apple trees. We used to have an old orchard, and I loved renovating the apple trees there; it was amazing to see them springing back into life with renewed vigour. Apple trees don’t last long, so there is always lots of dead and rotting wood around, with their attendant flora and fauna. Then think about increasing the light and air flow through the tree, to reduce the risk of infection and help apples ripen properly.

Recycling Christmas Trees

Recycling Christmas Trees. One of the downsides of the season, at least for me, is taking the decorations off the Christmas tree and putting it out back to die.

And the best thing about this county tree recycling program? All one has to do is bring the tree to the recycling depot; there is no fee.
