Tree-Trimming-Cost-2016-Estimates-Average-Costs

Tree trimming involves the shaping of a plant to achieve a certain design and structure. The art of Topiary is the art of clipping trees to create ornamental designs. Trimming is a part of this process. This is a popular option for people wanting to shape their trees into geometric shapes to set their property apart. It can also be applied to hedges and other plants. A good example most people know for trimming is the shaping of the Japanese Bonsai tree.

TREE PRUNING COST

Tree-Pruning-Cost-2016-Estimates-Average-Costs1

Tree pruning is similar to trimming, yet it is much more selective. When experts prune a tree the buds, twigs, roots, and branches all play a part in enhancing and creating the intended shape of the tree. Pruning generally results in more open structures between branches, in contrast to trimming which can create tight groupings of branches, twigs, and leaf cover. Pruning trees also involved identifying dead or diseased branches from your tree or plants. This keeps the whole tree healthier.

Summers in Arizona can be very harmful to your trees. Help trees from becoming victims of pest, diseases and summer storms by following Phoenix Trim a Tree’s “Summer Tree Care Guide”. Contact Phoenix Trim a Tree’s professional arborists for a free tree service consultation or to learn more about summer tree and shrub care.

LANDSCAPE INSPECTION – Check your trees for warning signs or damage, especially insect diseases and infestations. These insects could be killing your trees from the inside out. This will take away nutrients from surrounding plants as well. So make sure your trees look healthy. Then consult an experienced arborist to find out whether tree treatment regimens are needed.

PRUNING DISEASED OR DEAD BRANCHES – The most successful tree care programs usually include some form of pruning. You should make sure you are monitoring your tree canopies as well to help encourage healthy new growth.

REMOVE, BRACE OR CABLE WEAK LIMBS – Before those summer storm winds roll in, you want to make sure your tree branches have some stability against the high winds, specifically when weak branches fall.

WHY IS CARING FOR SOIL IMPORTANT? – Most tree issues come when poor soil is surrounding. Whether it be the lack of nutrients, amount of acidity or soil compaction, improving the soil around your tree will help create forest floor like conditions, encouraging the tree roots to become stronger. Also, the right types of soil helps the tree protect itself from disease, environment stresses and pests.

DO I NEED TO WATER MY TREES IN THE SUMMER? – If there is a drought in Phoenix, Arizona, then yes you should water your trees. In more temperate zones, they only need about 1 inch of water per week. Dont just water frequently, water deeply and soak the soil to get the best results.

HOW MUCH WATER SHOULD I USE FOR TREES IN ARIZONA? – How much water you use depends on the age and size of the tree. As long as you saturate the area as wide as the drip line, you are good. Use enough water that could penetrate at least 2 feet deep. As the tree grows, so will the drip line. This is especially important with watering palm trees in Arizona.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WATER MY TREES IN ARIZONA? – How often to water in Arizona depends on the type of tree, age of tree, current weather conditions and soil conditions. Frequent watering is required when the soil is loose and sandy because it dries out faster. Tight soil needs to be watered less frequently. Also, new trees need lots of water to develop their root structures. Furthermore, watering frequency should increase with long period of dry heat. For temperatures in Phoenix above 110 degrees, you should be adding an extra day to your tree watering

*Important: Don’t water too much, especially in areas where drainage is poor, watering too much can harm your tree more than helping it.

SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT INSECTS AND BUG ON MY TREES? – Insects are usually problematic during the spring, although some insects are common in the summer such as bag-worms and beetles. Noticing any unusual pest activity? Call a certified arborist today to inspect your shrubs or trees for pest activity.

Why Do Trees Need Pruning?

WHY DO TREES NEED PRUNING?

There are a few important reasons that trees benefit from pruning. It might seem like trees do just fine in the forest without the intervention of people, but they can benefit greatly from some TLC from people. It makes the trees we have in our landscapes healthier and safer for our homes.

PRUNING PROMOTES TREE HEALTH

A big part of pruning is removing the damaged, diseased, or dead branches of the tree. Removing these areas helps prevent further decay or insects from entering into the healthy areas of the tree. Dense canopies of leaves might provide shade that we love, but too much shade can limit sunlight and air which promotes some diseases in trees. Pruning removes water sprouts and suckers that help direct better distribution of water and nutrients throughout the tree. Pruning also removes crotches that are weak where branches intersect with the trunk of the tree. If they are allowed to fester the tree can tear at these spots.

Trees usually have 1 branch that goes straight up and is the highest point of the tree. This branch is called the “dominant branch”. Sometimes two branches might grow both trying to be the tallest branch in the tree and this can be dangerous. High winds can cause these branches to fight against each other and damage the tree.

PRUNING MAKES TREES SAFER

Trees with improper structure clearly can tear themselves apart under high winds, and that poses danger for us. Falling sections of tree or heavy limbs and branches can cause serious damage to our property or harm people. If these trees are near the house, power lines, or even the driveway very costly damages are possible if trees are not cared for properly.

Sections of tree have been known to fall on roof tops and not just damage the roofing but simply pierce the roof decking as well. This means the elements are going to come on into your home. Well pruned and maintained trees that provide shade to the house during summer are a great benefit in keeping the house cool. However during the windy months they can become a danger without proper maintenance and pruning.

MAINTAIN TREE SHAPE

Trees that grow in the woods are beautiful, and take on many different shapes. They are not managed or shaped in any way whatsoever. Trees that exist in our landscapes are part of an overall look in our gardens and with their size they are a prominent feature. This means that trees that grow in unusual ways will create non symmetrical shapes. Regular pruning helps maintain the trees shape and helps it mature into a more beautiful, healthy, and balanced tree.

A big part of maintaining the shape of a tree is removing key areas to stimulate or restrict growth. If areas are growing sparse but others are dis-proportionally flourishing pruning can help balance the growth. Over active areas can be trimmed back and the other areas will benefit from the removal. This will create a more balanced look for your tree. Catching these issues early will help every tree on your property look better when it is mature.

PHOENIX TREE PRUNING

Depending on the size of your tree and your experience with pruning and trimming the task of taking care of your trees can be a potentially dangerous undertaking. If large branches or limbs need to be removed chainsaws, ladders, ropes and experience are the best safeguards against accidents. Let the pros from Phoenix Trim-A-Tree help care for your trees the right way, and keep you safe.

SHOULD TREE PRUNING BE DONE IN WINTER?

There are various benefits to the landscape and trees that come from tree pruning. Other than enhancing appearance of the trees, when trimmed they are healthier and safer. Pruning helps plant health as it removes the branches that are dead or dying which were previously harmed by insects, disease, animals, mites, people or storms.

WINTER IS GREAT FOR PRUNING TREES

While you can prune trees during any time of year, the recommended tie varies depending on the species of tree. Generally, late winter is the best time for pruning the majority of plants.

ENHANCED ACCESS

The ground being froze allows better access with equipment which would usually be challenging or impossible to reach the areas.

INCREASED VISIBILITY

During winter, there is less foliage, if any to hinder the view. It is easier to spot structural issues, which results in easier pruning choices. It also leads to less damage to the plants underneath, such as annuals or perennials.

BETWEEN THE GROWING SEASONS

Because plants go dormant in the winter, fresh wounds are only exposed for short time periods. Once spring comes around, the new growth will start to seal the recent wounds.

CONVENIENCE

On a more practical side, it is easier for property managers or homeowners to be more inundated with outdoor projects during spring or summer. For that reason, it makes sense to save tree trimming or winter months. If you’re considering a winter tree pruning service, simply contact Phoenix Trim A Tree for scheduling your appointment.

WHY’S IT IMPORTANT TO PRUNE?

You can ensure that trees are maintained with long-term pruning management to provide the function and aesthetic values intended. By using correct, conscientious pruning methods, the function and beauty of the trees can be improved, and potential loss of limbs and other failures are reduced with winter storms.

REASONS FOR PRUNING DURING WINTER?

After leaves drop during fall, it’s easier for the arborist to view the three structure. After summer annuals are removed, it lowers the risk of disruption to the landscape when working on larger trees. Also, in areas where the soil freezes, it allows equipment to get closer, improving the safety and reducing costs. In addition, pruning during the winter helps avoid making certain serious diseases grown and spread that are only active during the growing seasons (spring and summer).

MULCHING IN WINTER, SHOULD I DO IT?

Yes, mulching can be a significant improvement for trees. The mulch allows the soil to retain moisture, reducing temperatures of summer soil, increasing temperature of winter soil, and restores moisture while improving soil nutrient levels and the structure.

WHAT OTHER WINTER TREE CARE ACTIVITIES ARE THERE?

Winter months is an ideal time for consulting professional arborists for inspecting trees. The foliage loss during winter gives the needed visual for finding problem areas, such as insect damage or weak branches. Although, your arborist will be able to assist you in deciding the best approach for your trees. Take the following into consideration:

  • If trees have braces and cables in them, it is best to inspect the hardware ever few years to ensure everything is still intact and serviceable. This also ensures the growth hasn’t led to replacement or adjustments.
  • If needed, winter is suitable for bracing and cabling trees.
  • Inspect shrubs or trees for ice damage during winter months.
  • Winter months are ideal for removing trees that are at critical risk.

Are you searching for “How & What Time To Prune Maple Trees” while looking for information about how to take care of your trees? This article is designed to help you understand more about pruning, when to do it, and how to get the job done. If you’d rather have us take of the trees in your landscape Phoenix Trim-A-Tree offers Tree Pruning Services. To prune a tree is to remove certain branches and/or stems in order to benefit the entire tree.

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR PRUNING A TREE?

It’s health! Removing dead, diseased, and damaged branches will help in preventing insect and decayed organisms from getting into the tree. In order to increase the amount of air and sunlight so that there will be less problems with diseases put a dense canopy on the tree. In order to eliminate having weak wood and to provide it with more food and water remove suckers and water sprouts. In order to prevent damage that is caused by branches rubbing against one another take out all branches that are crossing one another. As a tree grows older they tend to have weak and/or narrow crotches that split apart, by removing these crotches you will keep the wood from breaking and/or tearing apart.

Take off the co-dominant leaders. The co-dominant leaders will be the two branches that are growing close to the trees top, they grow straight up, becoming equally dominant. If you cut one of them off it will allow the other one to be the dominant branch, preventing branches from splitting apart or from tearing the wood, which is generally a problem under heavy winds.

TREE PRUNING SAFETY

Using the proper pruning procedures will create and maintain a stronger tree structure, also prevents the safety hazards of low growing branches, and also the growths that form and are subject to damage from storms.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN TO PRUNE A TREE?

Branches that are dead, diseased, or damaged needs to be remove as soon as they are noticed. Besides that, pruning is best done in late winter or early spring, right before trees begin to opening up their buds. Many trees, like maple and dogwood, bleeds saps during this time of each year. The bleeding doesn’t cause them any harm. Although pruning can be performed at any time, it is best to avoid do so in extremely hot or cold weather. Tree use up energy during weather that is extremely hot or cold, so if pruning is performed after its leaves has opened make certain that you give them enough time to develop their leaves fully, plus a little extra time for recuperating their energy.

HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT PRUNING A TREE?

To prune your tree corrected you need the right tools and some knowledge about where and how to cut. While safety should always be your first priority the next is knowing where to cut on your tree. Before you start cutting and affecting the future shape, health, and safety of your tree make sure to read this in full. Trees pruned correctly add value to your landscape, while over pruning or removing the wrong areas can ruin the look and structural integrity of your tree. The number one rule before ever making a cut is determining why you are pruning and what part is to be pruned. You need to start out having a plan. Next, you need to figure out what kind of equipment you are going to be using. You will generally be using hand pruners, a pruning saw, and loppers. Hand pruners: There is two different kinds of these, they are the bypass and the anvil. The bypass pruners are like scissors, whereas, there are two sharp blades involved, giving a clean cut.

For the anvil pruners, there is only one sharp blade that cuts against another blade having a flat surface. This crushes the underside tissue of the stem. The hand pruners that are recommended to get a clean cut would be the bypass pruners. Both of these type of pruners is intended to be able to cut wood that is ½ to ¾ an inch in diameter.

  • LOPPERS – Loppers come in two different types, the bypass and the anvil. There blades are larger, with longer handles, designed for cutting wood that is ¾ to 1 ½ inches in diameter. A bypass lopper is the one recommended.
  • PRUNING SAWS – The older bow saws are now being replaced by the newer tri-edge saws, which folds. These can quickly cut wood as big as 3 inches in diameter.

HOW TO GO ABOUT CUTTING

Pruning itself wounds a tree. But when it is done correctly it can actually help a tree. Of course, if it is incorrectly done the tree can be harmed by it. A couple of examples of incorrect pruning are: flush cuts and when stubs are left behind. Trees are not able to heal their own wounds. If a branch gets cut off, it stays cut off. However, trees are able to seal their wounds, if pruned correctly, what is referred to as a callus can be caused to grow sort of like a doughnut, it starts at the edge and grows inward until it covers the wound (or cut).

There is a boundary of a chemical inside of the tree that forms around the wound and separates it off. This limits potential decay that could occur. Leaving stubs and flush cuts will cause wounds not to be callus over and they cannot be sheltered by being separated by itself. These areas of the tree will merely begin rotting away. In order to prune a branch from a tree’s trunk you need to know where the bark ridge and branch collar is and be able to locate them, these two things are very important. A branch collar is merely where it swells around the base of a branch (Can be viewed in the figure).

You will find the branch bark ridge as a slightly raised area, that is dark, with rough bark which forms at the place where the branch and the truck’s tissue meet. Which are the areas of a tree that contains chemicals to initiate a calluses growth and the separation from the rest of the tree in order to protect its wound that was create from the cut. It is unhealthy to cut into these areas of a tree and needs to be avoided. There will be three cuts necessary if removing a big heavy branch from a tree to keep from tearing the branches collar.

Finally, do not go and ruin a pruning job by putting a coating on the cut using paint, and do not use wood dressing either. Years of research has proven that this does not prevent decay and does nothing to help the wound to close up. The most this will do is promote rot, as it makes the wood stay wet for a longer period of time after a rain shower. Also, you should never take a lot off of the tree at any one time.

MAINTAINING THE NATURAL TREES FORM – Sometimes erratic and vigorous branches will grow, changing the trees growth habits in other branches, resulting in the tree being misshaped. Removing these branches will help to maintain the trees natural form.
SHOULD YOU STIMULATE OR RESTRICT A TREES GROWTH – The sparse areas of a tree can have its growth stimulated by pruning it. If there is an area of the tree that is undesired, its growth can be restricted with pruning.

Fall Tree Care In Phoenix

FALL TREE CARE IN PHOENIX

Fall tree care helps prepare your trees for high winds and storms in Phoenix. This prevents potentially serious and costly damage at your home or business. As temperatures begin to fall and so do the leaves our trees need to be prepared for the cooler months in Arizona. While it might seem like there isn’t much we can do to help relieve the stress of colder weather on our trees there are a few steps you can take to help them weather the winter and pop back into life in the spring.

TOP 5 FALL TREE CARE TIPS

The following tips should help you maintain healthier trees that grow better and survive the colder months. Fall is primetime for planting. If you are adding trees to your landscape fall is one of the best times of year to get that job done. Once colder weather has set in the conditions are just right for encouraging new root development. The roots spend the fall and winter digging in deep to get the nutrients and moisture they need and are ready to spring forth and have great top side growth when warmer weather returns. Shrubs and trees that have balled bases are best planted in the fall, for bare root plants it is better to wait a little longer into the cold months for the plants to be completely dormant.

1. PLANT NEW TREES & BUSHES

Fall in the Phoenix Valley is the best time to plant new trees and shrubs. It’s the perfect time of year to plant these new additions to your landscape as it gives them time to establish solid roots before the summer heat. In addition there’s more shade, plants use less water, and you can prep the plant for success with fertilizer. Take full advantage of fall’s cooler temperatures to plant your new fruit tree, evergreen tree, cactus or whichever plant you like best.

2. KEEP WATERING THROUGH THE YEAR

Drought isn’t just a summer occurrence. While it might seem like all your trees are doing is hibernating during the winter months they still need water. Don’t forget to continue watering your trees through the cooler months as long as there isn’t any freezing.

3. PROVIDE SOME INSULATION ON SOIL

Use mulch to your advantage. Not only does mulch increase the nutrient content in the soil around your trees, but it can have an insulating effect during the cooler months. Use composted organic mulch around the base of your tree and it will help reduce temperature exposure and help retain the water during these months.

4. GET THE PRUNING DONE

Fall is prime pruning time. When the leaves drop it is a good time to be able to see the way your tree is growing and notice rouge branches that aren’t going where you need them to. It is also when the tree is more dormant and will endure the trimming and pruning better. Pruning in the right way and at the right time of year is critical to having a healthy tree that is the pride of your landscape.

5. PROTECT TREES FROM PESTS & ANIMALS

Prevent mechanical damage to your trees. While snow and ice isn’t typically a problem in southern Arizona different type of animals can chew on the trunks of our trees and cause damage. You can wrap younger trees in hard plastic guard, or a metal hardware cloth. Plastic cloth or burlap can be used in colder Arizona climates to provide additional insulation to help younger trees weather the colder months.

WHAT MAKES FALL TREE CARE IMPORTANT?

The extreme heat that Arizona is famous for weakens trees. This makes them more prone to infestation. Taking steps to help your trees recover for the heat before the winter sets in helps keep them growing for years to come. During the fall and winter some storms have increased wind speeds and heavy rainfall. These conditions test the health of trees and can spell disaster. When we care for and prune sections of the tree that are not healthy we remove the sections carefully. When wind or nature removes a limb or branch it does so forcefully and can damage the tree where it breaks off.

Winter trim tree trimming & pruning in Arizona keeps your trees to attractive and healthy. Winter time is the best time of the year to pay more attention to your shrubs and trees. The leaves should all be gone by now and most plants made out of wood become dormant, making this a perfect time to give them up trim up. This post will help you find how, what and why you should prune.

3 STEP TREE TRIMMING PROCESS

To correctly remove a larger branch of limb from a tree there is a 3 step process. This process was developed by Dr. Alex Shigo, who is a well known plant pathologist and pioneer in what is today’s modern tree care methods. His process that is widely used today focuses on removing branch tissue while ensuring no damage to the bark tissue or stem. Today his methods are used by virtually all commercial tree trimming companies. Correctly trimmed trees and plants produce more fruit and flowers. The right pruning actually helps shrubs and trees steer clear of diseases and pests so you won’t need to care for them as much. Here is a guide on how-to prune any flowering fruit tree or shrub.

STEP 1 – FIRST CUT

The first cut is simply a notch on the underside of the branch near the branch collar. It’s important to not cut all the way through and just create a notch in the underside of the tree. It allows the branch to fall away without the bark pulling and tearing as it falls.

STEP 2 – SECOND CUT

The second cut is the cut that removes the branch from the tree. It should be done about 2 or 3 inches from the first cut. After this cut the branch should fall leaving a short sub. The purpose of removing the branch and temporarily leaving a stub is so the stub can be removed safely without the weight of the branch.

STEP 3 – THIRD CUT

The third and final cut to trim the tree is done just outside the upper branch bark ridge and angles down away from your branch collar. If done correctly this 3 cut method the wounded area will produce a callus that encloses over the trimmed branch area.

TREE TRIMMING NOTES

It’s important to follow through and remove the stub left after your second cut. Leaving a branch stub will lead to decay and or delay a tree from closing the wound made by trimming. It’s important to not cut into the branch collar or bark ridge when removing a branch or limb. If the branch collar is wounded during the trimming it opens your tree up to diseases.

INVIGORATE YOUR TREE IN THE WINTER TIME WITH PRUNING

During the dormant season – pruning in the winter invigorates shrubs and trees because it gives plants extra energy reserves due to the extra root which will ensure new growth on the pruned branches. Pruning in the dormant-season is good for yourself as well because you see the branches clearly without leaves in the way. It also gives you a reason to get out of the house during the mild cold days. Here is a quick list of trees and shrubs you can safely prune from winter until spring. Also, a list of tree you shouldn’t prune in the winter season.

TREES YOU CAN PRUNE IN WINTER

  • Crabapples
  • Bradford & Callory Pears
  • Poplar
  • Spruce
  • Sumacs
  • Bald Cypress
  • Junipers
  • Cherries
  • Honey Locust
  • Plums

TREES YOU CAN PRUNE IN LATE WINTER

  • Summer Flowering Trees
  • Hydrangea Paniculataand Arborescens
  • Fruit Trees
  • Roses

SHRUBS YOU CAN PRUNE IN WINTER

  • Beauty Berries
  • Mallow
  • Camellias (After They Finish Blooming)
  • European Hornbeam
  • Glossy Abelia
  • Euonymous
  • Hydrangeas
  • Barberries

DON’T PRUNE DURING WINTER

Some trees “bleed” or ooze sap when pruned in late winter or early spring. While oozing sap is not dangerous to the tree, it can make a sticky, dirty mess, especially on parked cars. Prune these trees in summer or fall:

  • Maples
  • Birches
  • Dogwoods
  • Walnuts
  • Elms

WHAT NOT TO PRUNE IN LATE WINTER

  • Spring Flowering Shrubs
  • Spring Flowering Trees
  • Hydrangea macrophylla
  • Once Blooming Roses
  • Gardenias
  • Bleeding Trees

THE RIGHT CUTS DURING WINTER

  • Remove dying or dead branches.
  • Prune out diseased and damaged limbs.
  • Cut back overgrown branches where you mow or walk so they don’t fall off.
  • Prune of small branches where two cross.
  • Make sure thin branches are allowed air and sunlight.

MAKE SURE AND CUT BELOW DISEASED OR DAMAGED AREAS AND DO NOT PRUNE WET PLANTS(WATER SPREADS DISEASES). TO BE EXTRA CAUTIOUS MAKE SURE AND RINSE TOOLS WITH 10% BLEACH WATER SOLUTION.

PRUNING DO’S

Do cut angles that mirror branch collars-the spot where the truck and branch meet. Cut branches next to branch collars. If you make the cut correctly you will notice a circle shape of callus that will swell around that very spot. Do cut bigger branches in the three different parts. Start with cutting off about 1/3rd of the branch to lower the weight. This makes ensures that you don’t hurt you back or break your saw from trying to hold up a heavy branch. Lastly, undercut the stub so the bark wont rip when the stub falls. The final cut should be made from the top and beside the branch collar but not cutting into it.

PRUNING DON’TS

Don’t leave cut down stubs behind. They invite insects and can cause disease to move to your health tree tissues. Don’t cut the top off of your trees, a tree with a flat top doesn’t look right and it will grow weaker when the new sprout grown instead of healthy branches. Cut the tree naturally and let it grow towards the sky.

WHEN TO SEEK ADVICE FROM A PROFESSIONAL TREE EXPERT

Most pruning work can be done by home gardeners and do-it-yourselfers. You should call a tree trimming company if any of the following apply.

YOU CAN’T MAKE THE CUT FROM STANDING ON THE GROUND OR WITH POLE PRUNING TOOLS
YOU PLAN ON PRUNING TREES OR SHRUBS THAT ARE CLOSE TO POWER LINES (VERY DANGEROUS)
YOU HAVE STORM DAMAGE WITH HEAVY TREE LIMBS THAT ARE UNSTABLE OR STILL HANGING FROM THE TREE

Needless to say, if you are thinking of pruning your own trees and shrubs during the winter season, go ahead and do so. Just make sure you’re safe, and if you need a tree professional, please give our team a call!

Lisbon Lemon Tree Care

LISBON LEMON TREE CARE

Lisbon lemon trees are quite popular in Arizona. Lisbon lemon trees can tolerate harsh heat and windy conditions but are somewhat “frost sensitive”. Luckily Arizona doesn’t get must frost, so planting and harvesting a Lisbon Lemon tree in Arizona is very possible and with the right tree care your lemon tree can grow up to 30′ tall. So, get ready for Lisbon Lemon tree care tips from the experts at Phoenix Trim A Tree.

PLANTING YOUR LISBON LEMON TREE

Make sure and plant your Lisbon lemon tree in a area where it can receive full sun. Soil should drain easily as lemon trees do not grow well in standing water. If you live in a colder part of Arizona, such as Flagstaff, you are going to want to grow your lemon tree in a container that can be moved inside your home during the winter months.

HOW MUCH MULCH DO I NEED FOR PLANTING?

The root zone should be buried in 4-6″ of mulch. Mulch will reduce the amount of moisture loss and reduces the amount of weed grown around the base of the tree.

LISBON LEMON TREE CARE

Lemon trees need sun, water, fertilizer and pruning just like every other plant. Read about how to water your lemon tree, protect them from the cold, fertilize them, and how to prune and harvest your lemons.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WATER MY LEMON TREE

Lisbon lemon trees need to be watered regularly, especially during the first 3 years, or their 1st growing season as experts would call it.

WATERING DURING THE SUMMER – Water your Lisbon tree once a week during the summer months.

WATERING THE REST OF THE YEAR – For the rest of the year, only water your lemon tree every other week.

WATERING AFTER THE FIRST YEAR – You can reduce the amount of watering after the first year to prevent over watering.

LEMON TREE FEEDING/FERTILIZER

Lemon trees in general need a hefty supply of food (nutrients) to have healthy growth. Although, you won’t use a general fertilizer for Lisbon trees, you are going to want to use a citrus fertilizer that is made for citrus trees. You should re-fertilize your tree 2-3 during the growing season. The first re-fertilization should take place in spring. You’re going to want to fertilize before the new growth comes, not after, and then again at the beginning of September. If you are growing your lemon tree indoors, you are going to want to re-fertilize every month during the hot months to keep the soil moist and rich.

LISBON LEMON TREE PRUNING

STEP 1 – Choose the proper time to prune
STEP 2 – Remove all fruit from the tree
STEP 3 – Prune any branches that are damaged or diseased all the way back to the base
STEP 4 – Cut any branches that are smaller than the diameter of a pencil
STEP 5 – Prune suckers as they appear at any time

Usually, trees are only pruned during their dormant periods but lemon trees don’t have one. So, you should only prune or shape your Lisbon lemon tree during the cold months while the tree growth has slowed. Also, any suckers on the trunk of the tree should be removed. Also, to produce larger lemons, pinch off excess lemons while they are still tiny and leave 4-6″ between them. Read Wiki How’s Article on “How To Prune A Lemon Tree: 12 Steps (with Pictures)” for more information about pruning your Lisbon lemon tree.

PROTECTING YOUR LEMONS FROM THE COLD

As we learned above, Lisbon trees are sensitive to frost. Cold temperatures are one of the only things that can kill your Lisbon tree. Use Christmas lights strung through a canopy to provide extra heat during the cold months. For the coldest months, you can wrap your canopy in a blanket for additional heat.

HARVESTING YOUR LEMON TREE

Lisbon trees usually produce fruit within 3 years of planting.

IN CONCLUSION

  • Plant Your Lemon Tree In A Sunny Area With Good Drainage
  • Plant Your Lemon Tree in 4-6 inches of mulch
  • Water your lemon tree every week during the summer months and every other week after that
  • Feed your lemon tree nutrient rich citrus fertilizer
  • Only prune your Lisbon tree during the winter months
  • Protect your lemon trees from the cold, it’s the only thing that can kill them
