At present, there are two kinds of beautiful timely watering, one is a tower, the other is an umbrella, with these two kinds of tree pruning way is not the same.
Tower pruning, terminal stem can be unlimited growth, for the pruning of more attention to the side branches, the closer to the base of the branch, the less pruning, in other words! The longer the branch closer to the base, the shorter the branch closer to the top.

Nutrition will be provided to the first and second side branches in the future, and the canopy will become open, and people will be dangling in a natural umbrella under the tree.
