Don’t Strip

The third most common form of mal-pruning is over-thinning (stripping) which is caused when too many lateral branches of a tree or shrub are removed. Over thinning includes taking off too many lower limbs (over skirting), taking off too many internal laterals (over thinning) and stripping out all the laterals of tree branches leaving just foliage at the ends of the branches (lions-tailing).
