I’ve been searching for a term to describe a very light trimming to maintain a tree in a lower height than it is want to be. I’m experimenting with some black locusts around my house maintaining at a 15’ height. Sort of a large bonsai, not pollarding. Looking to see what happens as the years go on. In the couple years I’ve been doing it, the trees are getting more full and bushy as you’d expect, but by doing it constantly I think I’ll avoid the need for anything like a ‘heading cut’, just chasing the last apical spring and calling it. Anyone else play around with something like that?
