Tree Life Stages

Redbud tree in its prime of life.

Stage Three: Prime of Life

Stage three is next: the tree’s prime of life. Trees in their prime have full, round-topped crowns, filled with long, strong branches.

Now is the time to sit back and enjoy your tree. Trees in their prime of life will take care of themselves with little outside help.

Shade trees will offer almost no trouble except an occasional interfering or dead lower branch that may need removing. In forest situations, selective thinning will often encourage even greater growth and better health. Resist the urge, however, to make a premature harvest. Let your tree continue to grow.
