The 4 Don’ts

PlantAmnesty’s goal is to end bad pruning, which is ubiquitous.  The three main forms of bad pruning are tree topping, shrub and tree shearing and over-thinning.  Overplanting is another form of plant abuse that inevitably affects the plants health.  The definition of good pruning is pruning that maintains or improves the long-term health and beauty of the plant.  We have collected a series of articles on each of these topics.  Please click on the one that interests you.
