Pruning Deciduous Trees & Shrubs

Pruning Deciduous Trees & Shrubs


To prune or not to prune? That is one of the most often asked questions.

One of the first chores that we attack in our gardens each spring is pruning, but I find that most people are not quite sure what it is that they are supposed to do.

Knowing the proper pruning times and proper pruning techniques seem to be the most misunderstood areas of gardening.



Pruning:

Promotes flowering
Reduces pests
Contributes to the plant’s overall health
Maintains an attractive shape.
Benfits the longevity of a plant,
Benefits the productivity

The overall health of a plant is mainly determined by how well it has been pruned over the years, so it is very important to know and understand the proper way to prune your shrubs.


Many people, when pruning deciduous trees and shrubs, will just shear back the top of the plant to reduce the overall height of the plant, but this is only a part of proper pruning techniques.


So what else is involved in pruning?
Learn about the key concepts you should consider in our pruning seminar and handout.
