Tall trees can really present some challenges for home owners. They are harder to prune than small trees and can make quite a mess in the yard. To care for tall trees, you should:
1. Prune your tree correctly when it is young to be sure you don't end up with a badly shaped mature tree.
2. Instead of trying to keep all of the debris and litter the tree produces out of grass directly under the tree, apply a layer of mulch to the ground.
3. Call in the experts to do any major pruning. Tall trees can be dangerous to work with if you don't have the proper equipment.
