Here are some pictures from my site visit to Magnolia Park. Followed by some recommendations. Many people call us when they find that they need to “solve yesterdays solution”. That is the case with these cherry trees. Someone planted a tree and then instead of proper pruning that would have trained the tree to grow itself away from the structure and tall enough to improve the view of the home. They cut it like it was a common shrub to reduce its size. The result. Wood fungus and short term dense over sprouting of branches that will have a rotten branch to grow on until they break.
Hello my name is William Lombardo. Unless you have met me, it will be hard to put into words the passion that flows out of each inspired thought, and into each creative step. Some say I have vision. Some say I am artistic. But EVERYONE says I am passionate. I love to old world Europe. My family still has a home in Tuscany and have lived in that home for 400 years.
I am UNINTERESTED in trimming your trees and pruning your bushes. I am on the other hand VERY INTERESTED in setting the nature and landscape around you free to reach its genetic potential and present itself as means of stress relief and visual therapy for you and your family. I will have to trim your trees and prune your bushes to do that but with that as a goal I am willing to engage.
This fungus only grows on decaying wood. The wood is dying at every bad cut around tree. This is a direct result of bad trimming. This page is to clearly show that the decision hire a tree service that would allow incorrect pruning has shortened the life of the cherry trees and has started the trees down an irreversible path of decay and future failure. It also made the tree grow limbs like a broom. TreeCrews.com suggest we do things a little differently.
We need to do some corrective pruning at the very least or you can consider a new tree, or keep it until it breaks apart over time.
Notice the tree below has the limbs trimmed up from the bottom. If this is repeated over a few years the tree can grow with the leaves and branches higher producing a clear view under and through the tree.
The left side of the Magnolia needs to be trimmed to fit with the Little Gem below.
All around the property the trees and shrubs need to be maintenance trimmed away from the buildings.
These will not out grow the space. Require not trimming. They grow about as tall that the sign pillars.
This could grow the full length of the fence.
It can grow wide along the fence if you like. I think it would amazing and unique.
The tree would require about 3 minute per year of pruning time and would be very striking. It would match nicely the non weeping blue atlas that is to the right of the gate.
