Do I need to trim some lower large branches so I can.

Mar 23, It can be done but we have to stay on top of the tree sometimes. Most people do not have the patience or the know how to get this far. That is no fault of them as they have to really know the plant and know what they can expect from that plant in order to work with it in hopes of achieving an adequate or satisfactory result.

Cut a two story tree back to one story is not. May 25, Make a cut under the branch about 18 in (46 cm) away from the trunk. Only cut about 1/3 of the way through the branch. Make a second cut on the top of the tree about 1 in ( cm) farther out.

If the branch falls while you're removing the branch, these cuts will protect the tree, particularly the bark, from damage%. Jan 01, I had a guy call me about a month ago. I went out and looked, he had 2 magnolia trees that were about 30' tall.

He wanted me to cut them down to 8' tall. I tried to explain to him that it was bad to top the tree, but he thought he knew more then me. So I told him I dont do that kind of work, and to call someone else. What a waste of my stumpcutter.buzzted Reading Time: 3 mins.

State Protected and Federally Protected Trees. Before you cut down a magnolia tree, determine whether it is native to the United States and whether it is protected.

Trees can be protected at both the state and federal level. Federally protected trees such as Ashe's Magnolia (Magnolia ashei) are considered rare in all parts of their native range. It is illegal to cut down these trees. Nov 14, Hi: Cutting a branch off a Magnolia tree won't work to plant some where else.

The root system of a Magnolia is wide and once the Magnolia is established, you can damage the tree by pruning it. Magnolias are a plant specimen that only should be pruned when they are younger and done in the summer, after bloom time.
