"The best pruning job, when completed, should look like it's never been pruned at all"
Step #1
The first thing you want to eliminate is any of the dead wood. This is what the insects, bacteria or fungus feeds on. Once you remove the bad guys, the tree or shrub can focus on healthy growth.
Step #2
Identify and remove the oldest canes. Once you remove the least productive parts, it makes room for younger, woodier shoots that produce more prolific flowers and keep your shrub thriving longer.
Step #3
Focus on shaping the shrub by making cuts as close as you can get to the union of branches. Find branches that are crossing and rubbing, and cut them back at the source. This will avoid rot and decay.
Spring & Summer Shape:
Fall & Winter Rejuvenate
If you want well-manicured, evenly-shaped shrubs with health and vitality all spring & summer, it's important to get into the inside while they are dormant.

" We have used NE Horticultural Services twice and have been extremely happy with the company. Stacey is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and professional. She took the time to educate us on the varieties and health of all of our trees and shrubs. Her team did a beautiful job pruning our trees and shrubs, and very meticulously and safely cut down overgrown sick limbs from our neighbors trees. We recently used them to replant some plants and put in several new trees, and again their work was excellent. I would highly recommend Stacey and her team and look forward to working with them again! "
