Spiral Trimming

spiraltopiarySpiral Trimming or Spriral Pruning is a method that removes part of the canopy of the tree by systematic removal of the branches in each whorl chosen in many different ways. This method of pruning allows the tree to better resist to snow and wind. In a snow storm, less snow will remain on the tree branches and in a situation of heavy winds, the spiral pruning will let the wind flow easily through out the tree.
