Some 7-8 foot trees & 6-7 trees must be downsized this season due to bad market conditions related to the a glut of larger sized trees in the market. Therefore, many larger trees will have to be pruned/sheared down one to two sizes which will require at least one months experience in shearing trees in order to avoid damaging the trees.
