By thinning out the oldest branches, heading back tall, leggy stems and cleaning up unproductive or dead wood, most shrubs can be maintained at the proper height and spread for many years.
The Best Time for Shrub Pruning
There is an optimal time for shrub pruning that depends on a host of factors, such the climate, species, habitat, and current health of the plant. Our ISA Certified Arborists take all of this into account when they visit your property.
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.
