An Illustrated Guide to Pruning Ornamental Trees and Shrubs

Abstract

This pruning guide offers practical information, with clear, easy to follow instructions for successful pruning and maintenance of ornamental trees and shrubs. Readers begin with the basics of timing and frequency of pruning, and the necessary equipment to achieve the desired results. Gardeners and landscapers will find detailed instructions for pruning, maintaining, and rejuvenating deciduous and evergreen trees, shrubs, heaths and heathers. A section is devoted to manipulation techniques for shaping shrubs into small trees, as well as configuring hedges and vines. Topiary, pollarding, espalier and chemical growth control instruction is included for advanced gardeners. Numerous drawings, tables, tips, historical references, and the glossary are included in the bulletin which is drawn from Cornell research, extension demonstrations, and practical landscape and garden experience.
