Tree and Shrub Pruning

Tree and shrub pruning is one of the most widely neglected tasks among homeowners, even among those who pay a lot of attention to their landscaping. However, making sure that your trees and shrubs are properly pruned is one of the very best things that you can do for your yard. If you are not comfortable with pruning, or you are unsure about the right time and right way to prune your trees and shrubs, don’t worry - Actually Green Landscape & Lawn Care is available for tree and shrub pruning services anywhere in the Fort Collins area.

When should I prune my trees and shrubs?

While the removal of dead or damaged branches can happen at any time, there can be serious consequences for the health of your plant if it is pruned at an inopportune time. Pruning in the fall or early winter puts a significant amount of stress on the plant and can injure its ability to produce foliage and flowers. The healthiest pruning schedule depends heavily on the shrub being pruned.

Summer-flowering shrubs should be pruned in the late winter or early spring, while the plant is still dormant. These shrubs flower on each season’s new growth. Pruning them while they are still dormant means that their new spring growth will quickly heal the wounds. This also means that there will be more new growth, leading to more flowers and thicker foliage.

Spring-flowering shrubs should be pruned immediately after their blossoms fade. This gives them the rest of the season to repair the damage and produce new growth, which will allow them to produce more flowers and thicker foliage the next season.
