Shrub Care

Proper pruning of shrubs is essential to a healthy stand of shrubs. While shearing of shrubs is likely what most of us think of when we envision shrub pruning. For most varieties of shrubs, this practice can be detrimental to the health of the shrub. Shearing can cause wounds to branches leaving then susceptible to disease and desiccation. Shearing can inhibit flower and fruit production and cause a thinning of the canopy leaving the canopy overcrowded with dead and dying stems. Using hand pruners and loppers to make the cuts maximizes the healthy response of the shrub and a naturalized look for the shrub.
