    Schumachers have been working the soil for generations. The Schumacher family farm in Lexington inspired David’s father, John, to found a landscaping business in 1965 that eventually became one of the largest landscape companies in Massachusetts. David is proud to carry on that tradition with The Schumacher Companies.

    Step One: Start at the bottom. Tie your first strand to the trunk using a loose knot.

    Step Two: Tightly wrap the trunk. The larger the trunk, the greater the space between the loops.

    Step Three: Wrap the leaders and other large limbs in the same way as the trunk. Decrease the interval between the loops as the limbs get smaller.

    Step Four: Don’t wrap limbs to their tips; visual impact is not affected and the weight would cause limbs to hang and ruin the tree’s natural shape.
