Who’s tired of rain and snow and ready for spring?

If you raised your hand, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news? Spring is coming! The bad news? It’s going to be a few more weeks. The best way to pass the time? Planning what you’re going to do in the garden.

If your gardening and landscaping plans for spring include pruning and trimming your hedges, you’ll want to check out this article at Houzz. The author, Noelle Johnson, is a horticulturist and certified arborist. When it comes to trees and shrubs, she knows her stuff.

Johnson walks a novice pruner through a glossary of important terms and a description of the tools you might need to do the job. She also tells you why you should prune your trees and hedges. It’s part of maintaining these plants so that they remain healthy in beautiful. Johnson says that pruning:

  • Removes weak branches and those that are crossing
  • Gets rid of dead and diseased parts of the tree
  • Helps to stimulate new growth
  • Improves a tree or shurb’s resistance to wind
  • Promoted air circulation, which can decrease fungal diseases

Whether you plan to do your own pruning this year or hire a pro, take the time now to learn these important terms. The health and beauty of your trees depend on it!
