Shrub Pruning

Shrub pruning is another pruning practice that should not be forgotten. With proper pruning, the Parshall team can reduce shearing injury, increase flowering, control size and maintain desired appearance, whether you desire a formal or natural appearance, and will increase long term health gains.

It is best to prune your shrubs when there is a reason to prune them, such as when your shrubs start to look unkempt and untidy. Usually shrub pruning is completed by one of our ISA Certified Arborists between late spring and late summer. Flowering shrubs are on their own schedule because pruning has a crucial effect on the number of future flowers. Therefore, we usually prune flowering shrubs shortly after they are done blooming, but before the buds are set.

If you desire beautiful healthy shrubs, call us at Parshall Tree Care.


"Now that I'm in a place where I don't have trees to be taken care of, I'll still give you guys two thumbs up. I always could count on you to come in, take down the trees, clean it all up and then W H A T ? Where were those trees again? And also your congenial atmosphere was always wonderful!"
Miss you guys, Barb Jacob

The stump grinding you did was in extremely hard to reach places and some you had doubts that you could get to but in the end you found a way to do them all! Also, we thought that we would be doing the clean up as it was not on your quote but you did that as well. Our place looks great now!
