Our tree has been pruned again

We have a large and well-established Rhus tree in our back garden. Since we moved in a couple of years ago, we’ve had it pruned twice already. Each time, we feared that the pruning had been so severe that our poor tree would take years to recover. And each time, it astounded us by sending out new shoots with such determination and vigour that we thought, “Gosh, we’ll have to prune it again in a couple of months!”

Last week, it was time again.

It’s extraordinary how bright and sunny the garden looks now, even though it’s still winter!

  1. Interesting to see the pruning of your tree. I have been working as a gardener, and pruning trees is very interesting for me. In fact I have taken many pictures of pruned trees – but never posted them. Pruning can be very hard for the tree – but I find the results are often very beautiful.
