    Tree Surgery Tips

    Cherry or plum trees are popular in many gardens and they are relatively easy to care for – but there are some tips and times when you might need an expert in tree surgery rather than risk doing it yourself.

    For starters, the best time to prune a cherry or a plum tree is late June to mid-August.  This makes it different to other fruit trees such as apples and pears and there’s a good reason for it – cherries and plums are known as ‘stone fruits’ because the fruit has a stone in the middle rather than pips like apples or pears.

    Why this is relevant for tree care is that they are susceptible to two nasty tree diseases – Bacterial Canker and Silver Leaf disease, a type of fungal infection.  Both of these can kill the entire tree in worst case scenarios and often kill off areas of branches which can lead to tree instability.

    In fact, pruning these kinds of trees can be tricky which is why often people call in tree surgeons.  Pruning these trees in the wrong way can weaken the whole tree or leave it vulnerable to disease.  The aim should always be to keep a strong branch structure, and this can be tricky as plums in particular often grow long, thin branches that are weak and can easily break.
