Hi,

What is the verb in Levantine for "to prune" in English. I mean to trim (a tree, shrub, vine, etc.) by cutting away dead or overgrown branches or stems, especially to increase fruitfulness and growth.

Thanks for the answers.

    Lebanon: trimming a hedge is شفشفة <- verb شَفشَف_يشَفشِف, and pruning in general (as of a tree) is تقليم <- verb قلَّم_يقلِّم. Both verbs are transitive.
