Another very important maintenance chore in the landscape is tree pruning.  A lot of homeowners only attempt this when a tree is blocking a view.  Otherwise, many people think that if a tree is green, it should be left alone. 

Trees benefit greatly from an occasional prune, but it has to be done right or you can forever ruin one of the most important elements of your garden.  We’re pruning a Brazilian pepper tree to add depth and interest to the back of the garden.

The subject is broad, and rather than try to explain it all, we think the following web site has already done a perfectly good job of that.  Visit the fantastic site of Plant Amnesty by clicking here.
