Pruning My Dawn Redwoods at the Farm

We're getting lots of outdoor work done around my Bedford, New York farm despite the hot and humid summer weather.

My outdoor grounds crew has been very busy pruning, shaping, and cleaning some of the groves and allees. Proper pruning is necessary to maintain the health of the plants, prevent disease, and to encourage good growth. It's also important for any surrounding specimens that may be affected by overcrowding or over-shading. Now that I am spending so much time at home, I can work more closely with the crew to develop an ongoing list of tasks - there's always so much to maintain around a farm. This week, the team limbed up many trees along the carriage roads including the dawn redwoods near my chicken coops.
