Pruning is necessary to maintain plant health by removing dead branches or diseased wood. It will also train or shape plants to make a landscape appear formal or natural. For best results follow these guidelines based on plant appearance and seasonal conditions:
Prune shrubs that flower in spring just after flowers fade.
Prune pines in spring when the “candles” are soft.
Prune formal hedges whenever they begin to appear shaggy or ragged.
Prune Maples and Birch trees in late fall or early winter to avoid excessive bleeding.
Prune the vast majority of shrubs and trees in late spring or late fall whenever temperature are above freezing.
We also offer demonstrations and tips online.
