The success of young tree plantings hinges on many factors. Prior to planting these include stock selection and site preparation. Formative pruning is also a key factor to ensure young trees attain their full genetic potential while minimising the chance of inherent issues that may create additional cost as the trees mature.
The process is more bonsai art than heavy pruning. The goal is to eliminate structural issues at a young age thereby reducing future costs that may occur if the tree is allowed to grow as is.
Many trade level arborists are unfamiliar with the process of formative pruning. It is best to get an AQF5 arborist with experience in the formative pruning of young trees to get the best outcome.
