How to Prune Small Trees and Shrubs
The right way to clean up limbs and the best time of year to do the job
Don’t Be Afraid to Make the Cut.
A few minutes spent pruning is one of the best things you can do for the plants in your yard, but it’s one of the most neglected tasks of homeowning.
Pruning Flowering Shrubs.
Young shrubs should be pruned lightly to make them grow fuller and bushier. With hand pruners, trim long, unbranched stems by cutting just above a healthy bud.
Older and Neglected Shrubs
Older shrubs that have become a tangle of unproductive stems may require a more extensive program of thinning cuts, called renewal or renovation pruning, that takes at least three years.
Pruning Small Flowering Trees.
Avoid pruning a young or newly planted tree — it needs as many leaves as possible to produce the food required for good root growth.
When Removing an Entire Tree Branch
Cut as close to the branch collar — the swollen ring of bark where the limb meets the main stem or trunk — as possible without cutting into it.
Needle-leafed evergreens fall into two basic groups: random branching and whorled branching. Each requires a different pruning technique.
