Pruning your shrubs and trees is the horticultural practice that promotes plant health care, vigor, appearance, and safety. Depending on the plant, pruning and trimming typically occur during the winter and summer to remove dead or dying limbs. Structural pruning ensures the plant's future viability is preserved. Aesthetic pruning encourages flower and fruit development. Lynch Landscape believes in hand-pruning shrubs and ornamental trees, not shearing, to maintain plant form, density, and size. Annual pruning is recommended as part of a standard maintenance and estate care plan.

-Improve shape or clearance to ensure trees are away from the house
-Cleaning of branches and structure to allow more light on lawn
