Pine Shrubs Pruning

Pine Shrubs Pruning

Pine shrubs are small version of pine trees which have evergreen leaves for the whole year. You should do some regular pruning work for your shrub to make it tidy and healthy. Compared with other type of shrubs, you can easily prune them into your desired shapes.

The best time to prune a pine shrub is in spring when their dormant days are over. You should do the pruning work in prior its growing season, usually summer. The foliage is starting to grow and you need to do some pruning to make some training on their leaves. The growth rate at these days will be high and you should pay some attention on their growth. You should avoid trimming your trees in autumn because the newly pruned trees might be weakened in cold winter.

The first thing you need to do before the pruning work is to remove the redundant branches including the old or dead ones. In some branches, the leaves have been brown for a long time. You should get rid of them as soon as possible. For each year, you should cut the length of each branch a number of inches to decrease its crown to fit your garden. You should avoid cutting all leaves off from the branches. It may result in the lower growth rate for the next year. When pruning your shrub, you can use your imagination to create a artistic figure to decorate your garden.
