Cut back shrubs grown primarily for their foliage, like barberry and burning bush, almost anytime except in late autumn. New growth that starts after late-season pruning won't harden off properly before winter. If you want to do major pruning, it's best to cut the shrub back when it is dormant inwinter.
What is the best time of year to trim trees? Anytime between late fall and early spring is best for tree trimming or pruning. Talk to your local arborist about pruning before spring blooms emerge. Typically a tree's pruning cycle is 3 to 5 years, but type, size and health play a role in the cycle that will work best for your tree.
What happens if you cut all the branches off a tree? Cutting off all tree branches is insane. They produce free oxygen, that alone should motivate you not to remove all of its branches. If you prune out just enough branches the tree will not freak-out with new suckersso learn to prune just enough, not too much.
Should I cut back perennials in fall? No. Although it's recommended toleave them in place until spring, perennials will usually survive if cut back. Some perennials, like mums, always winter best with tops left in place. When leaving perennial tops intact during winter, cut them back in spring before new growth emerges from ground level.
