Don’t Wait to Prune Flowering Shrubs and Ornamental Trees

Dogwood blossoms

Flowering trees and shrubs greet us in the spring with a glorious show of colorful blossoms. Knowledge of each plant’s growth habits is essential to maintain a good display of blossoms each spring.

Ornamental trees and shrubs such as Dogwoods, Crabapples, Magnolias,  Rhododendrons, etc., develop buds over the summer months for flowers next spring. These plants should be pruned after spring flowering so that they have enough time to set new buds prior to the end of the growing season. If you wait until late fall to prune, the buds will have developed by then and you will be removing them causing to not have a bloom next spring.

Don’t be disappointed next spring, prune flowering trees and shrubs now

Don’t hesitate. Give us a call to arrange a review with one of our arborists and keep your trees blooming beautifully. 877.308.8733
