As you can see in the mountain tree, I want you to see the tree in the garden
Trees whisper in the wind

  How can you prune your garden?

Pruning is not a simple matter of applying a fixed method to each tree type. Even if you read a commercially available pruning guidebook, you can not move your hands when you actually try to cut it. Is not such experience? That is natural. Because pruning can not be done without having a more general view.
Then, how do you actually prune in your garden? For that, first of all, please know that pruning has two elements.

1, to achieve human purpose.
2, to bring out the joy of trees.
Below we will explain each.


  1, to achieve human purpose

This is a controlled pruning that adjusts the position to cut according to various human circumstances, such as cross-border from the site, adjustment of height, circumstances of the environment and life, preferences, etc.


  2, to bring out the joy of trees

This is written in the general pruning guidebook. It is a pruning that learns the nature of trees and derives its good points.


  And what will you do?

Here, for convenience, 1, pruning that achieves the purpose of human beings is "pruning purpose", 2, pruning which derives the pleasure of trees is "ordinary pruning".
The first thing to think about is how to do "purpose pruning". Depending on the conditions (circumstances) already decided, we will guide the pruning section (where to cut). Next is 2 ordinary pruning. Purpose Pruning is usually followed by pruning after the frame appears. Pruned normally after pruning. This is not the opposite.
Pruning that fits your garden is objective pruning + ordinary pruning. (Your condition and purpose + ordinary pruning)
Based on the basic idea above, we prune and finish based on my experience.

Customers themselves may be specifically aware of the garden and pruning, but there are many cases that it is not so. In the case "I do not have any particular hope, I'll leave it to you for the time being", in that case I will consider and set the ratio and combination of purpose pruning and regular pruning.

Finally about costs. I am based on being able to work on a day (or a few days) work once a year (or several times). The pruning basic price per day is 23,500 yen for January to April, in most cases, branch-leave disposal cost 1500 yen, subtotal 25000 yen, and a total of 27000 yen with 2000 yen for consumption tax. May pruning basic fee is 26,500 yen, in many cases, branch-leave disposal cost 1500 yen, subtotal 28000 yen, and consumption tax 2240 yen, totaling 30240 yen. From June to December, the pruning basic fee is 30000 yen, in many cases, branch-and-leave disposal costs 1500 yen, subtotal 31500 yen, and consumption tax 2520 yen, totaling 34020 yen.

  You too? It is! Ah misunderstanding pruning knowledge ♪

Misunderstanding pruning knowledge I often hear. Knowing the physiology and nature of woods, such misunderstandings should also disappear. And with a humble heart to the tree, love for the garden will deepen. Typical misunderstanding pruning knowledge is the following six.
1, pruning is good for trees
2, it is easier to manage if you lower it
3, If you improve the ventilation insects do not stick
4, pruning should be done in late autumn
5, detestable branches should cut
6, pruning is to cut an elongated branch
I will explain in detail below.


  1, Pruning is good for trees

The pruning makes the tree cheerful, the tree rejoices when pruning ...,. Have you heard of it? But, in fact, that is not the case. The tree itself does not want to be cut at all. On the contrary, I would like to continue to enhance the photosynthetic capacity by stretching more branches. The tree itself does not want to be pruned. Though I do not want tree confidence to be cut off, it is right thinking to think that we are cutting at the convenience of this place (human). Some customers are pleased that it will become brighter as you turn off. However, the more you cut it, the more scratches it gets. It is pruning that it makes you feel modest while thinking so that the wound will heal faster so that the wound can be minimized.


  2, management is easy if it is low

"Because it is so hard that it gets so big, please lower it so much." It is often said. However, the lower the lower the tree, the stronger the branch of the crown extends to restore the original height. One year later the branches are disturbed and growing vigorously, becoming more ugly than before. Then it returns to the original height. If it is too low, it may be extremely weak due to rapid collapse of branches and roots. Then the next year, two years later gradually withering and stem burning (bark crack) progresses. So, when you lower it you have to be cautious. Many people think that it will be refreshing if it is lower. But the opposite is true. On the contrary, after getting low, it becomes annoying. Then, what should I do? Keeping the width (leaf tension) slim while adjusting to a reasonable height. Then you will not get a gloomy branch after pruning. You can keep the garden refreshing while enjoying a cool tree shape.


  3, If you improve the ventilation insects do not stick

It is not easy to say that insects are poorly ventilated. There are plenty of leafy trees, but not all of them have insects. The more clearly it is that it is easier for insects to stick to weak trees. There is resistance to wood to keep insects from sticking. I am working hard so that the trees themselves are not stuck with insects. However, when the tree weakens, its resistance diminishes and insects attach. Most insects live in humble ecosystems. Put on a withering tree on a weak tree. So, it is wrong to make your eyes smack bugs. First of all we do not weaken the tree. Prune it so as not to lower the resistance of the tree and do not bring insects. That is the best. However, if insects are still attached, let's deal with disinfection (insecticide spraying). Do not cut too much branches or leaves, thinking that insects do not stick if you do well with the ventilation. It damages trees and weakens it, and makes it easier for insects to attach.


  4, pruning should be done in late autumn

In November and December, a lot of cars of the plant builder who pledded the stepladder will appear. I noticed the garden building that works in the neighboring garden and I have to ask for it soon! . But pruning trees in this season is not because it is appropriate for trees. It is because of customs, customs, that I want to clean the garden before New Year's Day. Another reason is that when pruning at this time, branches do not grow for the next six months, so there is "good sense". People seem to have lost feeling if they stretch immediately after cutting branches. It is a big stress that trees themselves can not stretch branches for a while after being cut. . Let's not decide pruning time by customs and profitable feeling. The optimum period for pruning for trees is the end of winter (on the verge of dormancy) in deciduous trees, spring in the case of deciduous trees. The time when the leaves come out immediately after pruning is the best period.


  5, abusive branches should cut

In the pruning book of the world, the basis of pruning is "watermark pruning", the basic principle of watermark pruning is to cut "unnecessary branches", unnecessary branches are branches which are said to be bad people called "detest branches" , And it is written. However, looking for an abominable branch and cutting it all down, the number of branches and leaves becomes extremely small, and the wood figure becomes sky. When cutting off all the abominable branches, the twigs of the trash are gone, which makes it impossible to prune the tree. Tightening pruning is more important than pruning pruning. It is a good pruning that you leave some detestable branches. The worst thing is to cut off the detachment branches and to eliminate branches and leaves on the way from the root to the tip of the branch. For example, you can get tired when you keep running on a highway without taking a break for six hours? The absence of leaves on the way from the root to the tip of the branch is like there is no service area on the highway. The tree is very tired. To avoid it, it is not good to cut off abuse branches. It is a good pruning to finish like it is in order, while leaving some detestable branches. Then a little more about "watermark pruning". It is not the main line of pruning to truncate branches and to prune them. It is a result to get through until it gets through. It is the correct order that you will naturally be transparent throughout the process of pruning branches, not first thought.


  6, pruning is to cut an elongated branch

For example, crispy braised crispy. It is slightly different from my pruning that it cuts all the branches that grew up with Gyeen from Genkoku every year at the same place, cutting the round cutting or squaring, cutting by extension, returning to the same shape as before. My pruning is replacement technology. It is to nurture the branches that are left instead of the cut branches. I will grow the branches I left behind, and the following year I will do the same for the other branches. In that way I will always turn branches into young ones. That is my pruning I think. Search for parts to be replaced and cut. Find the inner branches and leave to leave, then cut ahead from there. In that way I brought up the branches and leaves that were inside and brought up, and next time I will shift and grow branches from the inside to the outside at other places next time. That is my pruning I think.


  What is bad pruning

I do not know if bad pruning is done or not after work. In most cases, it seems to be pretty if you cut it off. Well, when I say, one year later. If branches are struggling and stretching unsightly a year later, that is a bad pruning. After cutting it is refreshing, but after that Gunggun stretches out like a rampage, and it cuts again, its repetition. Then I can not enjoy garden trees throughout the year. Instead, I'd like you to enjoy the gently stretching branches and leaves throughout the year.


  What is the purpose of pruning?

The purpose of pruning is to keep it in the limited space of the garden and make it feel beautiful to the viewer. It is important to balance these two. If you can fit it in the space, how to cut it does not matter. Or just let me feel as a beautiful figure, if you do not do anything and you leave it alone, the trees will make your own huge contours and beautiful curves themselves. But it is not. Keep it in the garden and make it beautiful. That is the purpose of pruning.


  Frequently asked questions ♪


  Who will you come by?

Basically it is Mitaka city, Chofu city, Fuchu shi. If it is farther than that, you may get a surcharge of 3% ~ 15%. If you have an introduction, I will ask you in the distance.


  When do you plant trees, when should you cut branches?

The most popular period of No.1 is from November to December, but this is from the idea of ??wanting to clean the garden before New Year's Day. Actually this time is not really a good time for trees. The optimum period for trees is early spring. If deciduous trees, February. Evergreen trees are in March.
So why is not the optimum period (early spring) the most popular period? That's the New Year's first thing, but another one. When pruning in March, the branch will stretch out with a little over a month thereafter. It seems to feel like "I lost it, even though I had to puncture it!" Conversely if pruning is done in November, for example, branches do not stretch for nearly half a year. It seems that it is "I got it ♪". That is why November - December is the most popular period.
About ten years ago, I have talked about the importance of care of early spring to customers. I am recommended to clean early spring which makes pain less, trees cheerful, you can enjoy flowers and fruit. From thinking of "to lose because it grows soon", I think that he wants to take a good turn at the best time for trees.


  I am worried about how much it will cost.

we will not charge more than the estimate after work. It will not take any work without consulting quotation or cost. Please be relieved.
