Here’s a tip from Greg at The Tree Professional, located in Reno. If you own a Northern Nevada property you probably should hold off pruning those bushes for just a bit.
Here is what Greg wants you to know…
Whatever type of shrub you have, fall pruning stimulates late-season growth that may not have enough time to harden. This actually weakens the plants, especially if there's an early frost. Just wait until winter and trim bushes when the plant is in a deep sleep.
Avoid the temptation to prune now. When it gets a little colder, call The Tree Professional out to your home and have him do a proper job of trimming your trees and bushes.
