Have a church that wants all their shrubs around the building trimmed and shaped up to make it look nice for easter sunday. We used to trim these but its been a while because they cut back on services last year due to finances....We usually do the majority of our pruning from may-nov ...Is it too early to start shearing the arborvitaes? A few years ago i learned the hard way...had a rough winter and a lot of the arborvitaes had branches hanging out all over so we 'touched them up' on one job in late march when we did our spring cleanup to try and keep some shape until we got back to shaping them later on.....soo is it too early for the arborvitaes? we did some slight damage by pruning early before....i prefer to prune these in like october/november.
