Branches that contain leaves that have been damaged can be trimmed to improve the appearance of a tree. As branches grow back, leaves will remain healthy and attractive.

Administer Pesticide

A pesticide injection kit should be purchased from a company that sells or plants trees. An injection kit will include instructions, a syringe, and pesticide. Before applying pesticide, a drop cloth or plastic sheeting should be draped across the property that surrounds a tree. Small holes need to be drilled around the bottom a tree’s trunk. Holes should be several inches deep and an even amount of space should be placed between them.

A syringe needs to be filled with pesticide before inserting the end of a syringe in each hole and pressing a plunger on the back of a syringe to eject pesticide into a hole. Any remaining holes need to be filled by completing the same instructions.

Prune Branches And Water A Tree

Branches that contain leaves that have holes in their surface can be trimmed while standing on a ladder. A pair of garden clippers can be used to trim branches at an angle. If branches are thick and difficult to trim with clippers, a power saw may be needed to cut through each one.

A minimal amount of each branch should be removed to avoid harming a tree. Branches should not be pulled while attempting to trim them because it could damage a branch.

A rake can be used to gather fallen branches into a pile before using a shovel to place yard waste in a wheelbarrow. If the soil around a tree is dry, a water hose that has a nozzle attached to it can be used to moisten the soil.
