SHRUB PRUNING SERVICES

SHRUB PRUNING PROMOTES HEALTHY GROWTH AND DENSE FOLIAGE

One common shrub pruning error is to concentrate solely on the shrub’s exterior surface. Depriving the inner structure of enough light for photosynthesis, which can lead to “hollow shrub” syndrome and a much shorter lifespan.

Professional shrub pruning requires a certified arborist’s ability to accommodate the plant’s physiological needs with the desired aesthetic look.

Ensure the growth and long-term health of your shrubs with our pruning services.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PRUNE?

Anytime between late fall and early spring is best for trimming or pruning.

And even better, dormant pruning in late fall or winter saves time and money by helping with disease management.

Knowing when to trim your shrubs keeps them healthy in the long-term while setting them up for a season of robust growth.

Keep your shrubs in the best possible condition.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHEARING AND PRUNING?

When it comes to shaping your plant, selectively pruning is preferred over shearing.

It may take a little more time than shearing, but pruning is the better technique for your plant’s health and appearance over time.

Here are a few important differences between shearing and pruning a shrub:

  • Pruning cuts encourage growth throughout the plant.
  • Running cuts cater to the plant’s natural shape.
  • Pruning cuts let you dictate the plant’s size.
