Shrub & Small Tree Pruning

All shrubs need pruning from time to time to keep them tidy. Removing dead branches opens up the interior for good air circulation and sunlight. Shrub pruning is also important to reduce the occurrence of diseases and insects. Proper care encourages more vigorous new growth. For most shrubs, those that don’t have evergreen needles, the best approach to pruning is branch by branch. This technique is called selective pruning. Selective shrub pruning maintains the natural shape of the shrub. Selectively pruned shrubs soften manmade structures and will enhance the surrounding settings. Shrubs that are selectively pruned require less maintenance which can result in significant cost savings.
