Zip on over to and ask those guys. You'll have to register to post, but it is painless, and well worth the effort. Be prepared to provide more info, such as variety of the trees, your location, soil types, etc. There is a lot of knowledge to be gained there.

We have about 80 white pine trees planted on our land when we bought it. They now range from 4' tall to 12' tall and have never been trimmed to my knowledge. I would like to trim them but do not know the proper way to do it. We cannot afford to hire anyone so it's our responsibility to do it proper so they end up being shapely nice looking trees that are also healthy. Can you please give me a brief description on where to start with this project? We also have a couple of old apple trees and a pear tree, not sure we can save them although they did bare fruit last year there are just alot of dead branches.

How many do you have? What's the purpose of them? What do you have in mind?

Don't know about an online source but when I went to Forestry school, the rule of thumb was to leave 1/3 live crown. Don't think you can go wrong doing that.

Les Fortunate, this is about what a tree farming told me last year and it appears my trees are going to put out branches this year to make them fuller.

One word of advice to from the farmer was to be sure all pruning was accomplished NLT June.
