I really like how shady our yard is, but I'm not so excited about cleaning up everything that drops off the trees. I can't pick the fruit from the very top of the trees, so it rots and falls to the ground, and then it attracts mice and birds unless I clean it up straight away. I'm getting the trees all lopped back so I can get a break from all the cleaning up all this fallen fruit. This blog is all about how to get your backyard fruit trees lopped so that you don't have to clean up as much fallen fruit.

A fully grown oak tree is a majestic sight with its wizened bark and twisted limbs. With their thick trunks and aura of ancientness, one could be forgiven for thinking that oak trees are invincible. However, surprisingly, despite their outwardly tough appearance, oak trees generally do not fare well when their root systems are disturbed. If you are planning on building a new fence or building near an oak tree, you might be wondering if doing so could spell the end for your tree.
