Pruning a maple that has mites - when and what precautions
- Zone 4b (Minneapolis, MN)
I have a beautiful Korean Maple that has mites. It also has lower branches just 3 feet above the ground. The yard is very shady and I am trying to give the grass more sun. It is also near a border of shrubs that are trying to grow away from it. I would like to remove about two rows of lower branches. those btranches also have a very high level of mite signs on the leaves.
I am wondering if I should be doing something after pruning vis-a-vis treating the mites or sealing of the cuts.
Any advice appreciayed
