Hello, We have a large holly tree, biggest in Calvert County and I was wondering about pruning the low branches some of which have healed into the ground and have started small trees. where to start, where to finish. Thanks so much, Huntingtown, Md

We viewed your photo. The holly tree looks very cool and sculptural. You do not have to prune it.

You will have to decide if you want to prune it. You can prune the lower limbs and transplant the seedlings to another area.
Since the tree is very large and important to you, you may want to contact a certified arborist for the best way to proceed and options. Here is the link http://www.treesaregood.org/
