Why do you want to trim tea trees?

White Tea

Stereotype pruning: The purpose is to cultivate a reasonable tree skeleton and a rich canopy in the younger stage of the tea tree. Generally, it is carried out 4 times, and each time the new cutting edge of the cutting must be lignified or semi-lignified. The first pruning combined with the planting is set at 15-18 cm from the ground; the second, third and fourth fixed shears are required to be cut 15 cm upwards from the previous fixed scissor. After four times of shaping, the height of the tree has reached 60 cm, and there are 2-3 grade branches, which can form a reasonable picking crown and can be put into production.


Light trim: The purpose of light trimming is to adjust the crown and cultivate a good picking surface. It is carried out once a year, and the degree of light pruning is to cut off the surface of the canopy by 3-5 cm, mainly to cut off small pile heads on the crown surface and useless new tips.


Deep pruning: After years of picking and lightly trimming trees, the deep-pruning method is used to cut a layer of leaves of 10-15 cm in the upper part of the canopy, so that the tea tree can re-extract new branches, improve the germination ability of the tea tree, and prolong the high-yield and stable production period of the tea tree.


Heavy pruning: For half-aging and premature senescence tea trees, it is generally appropriate to cut 1/2 of the height of the original tree, combine finishing (pick-cutting), re-cultivate healthy branches and pick the canopy.


For very aging tea trees, it is advisable to saw (or cut) all the branches at a height of about 10-15 cm from the ground, and re-cultivate the tree skeleton structure and pick the canopy.
