Lion’s Tailing Trees: A Big Mistake
February 1, 2021
One of the many reasons to hire an expert when it comes to tree pruning or tree thinning is the tendency for non-professional tree crews to over-thin trees. We see it often here in Central Florida when a customer has had another tree service on their property. Over-thinning is also referred to as lion’s-tailing (like the shape of a lion’s tail, thin and then puffy on the end). It can weaken your tree’s branch structure. As a property owner, it’s important to ensure you have experienced, professional tree technicians on the job.
