Professional Shrub Pruning: the Right Care at the Right Time
Shrubs offer a wide range of benefits and value to landscapes by providing the “Five Fs:” colorful flowers, attractive fruits, beautiful foliage, interesting form, and amazing fall color.
A proper shrub pruning program — by knowledgeable, highly-trained SavATree arborists — will help enhance the Five Fs, not diminish them. Well-timed and customized pruning will improve their strength, health, and resilience for the future, and help you avoid expensive shrub replacements.
The Best Time for Shrub Pruning
Since every species of shrub is different, our timing and approach for pruning is based on their schedule, not ours. In addition to the needs of the specific species, the optimal time for shrub pruning also depends on factors such climate, site conditions, and the current health of the plant. SavATree arborists will evaluate your property and shrubs and propose a pruning schedule designed to help them flourish. (Flowering shrubs are a good example, since timing has a crucial effect on the amount of flowers they will produce. These shrubs typically should be pruned shortly after blooming, but before the buds are set for the following season.)
