    1,  Topping it off the leader and turning it into a bush.

    2.  Not thinning it out properly where the limbs do not have room to seretch and grow out and up.

    3.  Tearing the limb off the tree instead of making a clean cut.

    4.  Cutting too close to the tree when pruning to the trunk or not close enough leaving a one inch knob for tree to mend.

    5.  Not pruning out badly sprouted limbs allowing them to grow and misshape the tree.

    That is my two cents worth
