It can be quite a daunting task to make your tree look nice and clean. It can be very tough to decide on what branches to cut and what branches to keep. Some easy tips though can be to look at the branches and see if they are dead. If they are, cut them off. The same goes with diseased branches. If you are seeing limbs that are also dead cut them off. A nice V shape is what people are looking for.
- Look for old, dead, and hanging extra branches to cut off.

- V shape branching is another method you can use to make sure it looks nice.
