Pruning Plants in Texas

Pruning your shrubs, trees, bushes, and trees is part of keeping your plants healthy and in good shape.

Time of year is important when you prune is important.

Early Spring
Trim Holly, Boxwoods, Barbados Tree, and Shrubs. Also Roses Azalia, Hybiscus, Mop Head Hyrangia, Viburnum, Wisteria, and Mountain Laurel.

Late Spring, Early Summer
Trees like Oaks, Maples, and Redbud can be pruned in late spring – it helps to be able to tell when branches are still alive vs dead. By late spring, trees will start budding out, and you can remove dead branches and clean things up.
