Tree Pruning: Tip #3 November 2015

Tip of the Day: Prune Entire Branches

If neglected, many bushes get too big and dense. While the foliage might look OK this year, next year it just might be too big to prune back without butchering it. Instead, it’s better to control size and shape by selectively pruning out a few entire branches each year. Cut them at a larger branch or the trunk. This also opens the plant to light and encourages healthy growth from the interior.

Bonus Tip of the Day: Prune Evergreens Lightly

Unlike cane-type bushes, evergreens and other “nonsucker-type” bushes grow from their existing stems. They develop a more permanent branch framework and usually need less pruning. If your landscaping was well planned, these bushes, especially evergreens, will grow to fit their spot with relatively little help. They’ll need only a light annual pruning to remove dead branches and to control size and shape.
