Tree Shrub Care – Pruning Trees and Shrubs
Pruning Trees and Shrubs
Ornamental trees and shrubs accentuate any landscape with blossoms and unique shapes. Unfortunately, ornamental plants require periodic pruning. Trees need to be properly pruned to retain their natural appearance. Pruning also ensures that your landscaping remains uniform and that the plants do not overgrow an area. Problems can arise when plants grow onto a building or impede walkways or drives.
Sheering a tree like a bush can cause permanent damage and cause future pruning to be required more often. Additionally, certain ornamentals such as crab apples grow thick foliage, which can lead to die back and disease. Regular thinning greatly improves the looks and health of crab apples.
