    The Importance Of Proper Pruning Of Trees

    Great article ... only two things to add - always think safety before pruning anything. And always take you time. I see so many branches being hacked off with impatience so leave long term damage.

    No sign of cherry blackfly under any leaves. Just curled, very dry/ brittle leaves. Not sure whether it needs more water or less?!
