Trimming & Pruning of Shrubs and Trees
Great looking landscapes share one thing in common --- they are kept in "good trim". Whether this involves a formal or a natural look, ASI, has the knowledge and experience to professionally prune your ornamental plants.
Most severe cutting-back of shrubs is best done in early spring, just prior to the emergence of new growth. We've had success severely cutting back Yews, Junipers, Rhododendrons, and many others, during this early-season time frame.
Key Benefits of Pruning
- Nicely trimmed shrubs compliment you and your home
- Professional pruning helps protect your investment
- Frequent trimming extends the life of foundation plantings
Pruning a Shrub to a Tree-Form
Here you can see an example of a shrub that has been pruned nicely into a tree form. The Upright Yaupon Holly to the right can be a focal point that adds lots of character to your landscape. The best shrubs for tree-forming are ones that grow to be at least six feet in height. You may either prune for single or multi trunk depending on the existing branching. Top pruning or sheering may be necessary to achieve a more formal shape.
