Pruning Hemlock Trees?

Answer

Pruning of hemlock trees should take place during their most dormant stage. In most climates, this is during the spring months. You should also only sharp pruning shears and trim off damaged or diseased parts first. The idea of pruning is to reshape the tree and keep it maintained. Look at the tree and decide which branches need to go so that you still have a full tree and don't kill it. Pruning off major branches will cause damage to the growth structure.
