Most people know the basics about tree care such as watering them and keeping them pruned. When it comes to opposite branching, the term probably sounds like something out of a fiction novel. Your local arborist at Five Star Tree Services wants you to understand what opposite branching is in the event that your trees need specialized help. All trees have alternate branching or opposite branching. Understanding the difference and knowing which trees should have each will help you to better care for your trees.
Most trees grow with alternate branching. Alternate branching is easy to identify because their branches grow all over in different directions.The branches on one side of the tree will either be higher or lower than the branches on the opposite side. It is also easy to identify alternate branching because it is much more common and prevalent than opposite branching. Alternate branching can be found in cherry trees, cottonwood trees, oak trees, and many others.
Trees with branches that grow directly opposite of each other are considered to have opposite branching. Shrubs and trees both may exhibit opposite branching but it is less common in trees.Because there are so few species of trees that exhibit opposite branching, it is easy to identify them on sight once you know what to look for.
We have listed some of the most common species of trees that exhibit opposite branching on our blog post here.
