Pruning / Cutting a magnolia tree
Newbie and complete novice looking for advice!
I've recently purchased a house with a beautiful mature magnolia in the garden. It flowered in April and now the flowers have gone.
It appears that the tree hasn't had much tlc over the years which has resulted in in it becoming untidy with the result being that it is actually blocking light out for the lawn and other trees and shrubs.
I'm thinking of cutting some branches to tidy it up a bit - only some as I don't want to stress the tree by going crazy.
Any advice on when / how best to do this??
All advice welcome!
