Did you read the whole thread? This NOT the first time these were trimmed like this. THEY HAVE BEEN TRAINED BY ME FOR 10 YEARS WITH A GAS POWERED HEDGE TRIMMER, HAND PRUNERS, SMALL PRUNING SAW. I DO NOT SEE WHAT PRUNING PRACTICES HAVE TO DO WITH FACT YOU PEOPLE ARE REALLY ONLY COMMENTING ON THE SHAPE. I DONT CARE WHAT SHAPE YOU THINK A TREE OR SHRUB
HAS TO BE.MY CUTS ARE CORRECT. MY TRIMMER IS EXTREMELY SHARP AND CLEAN AND I AM ONLY CUTTING OFF GROWTH LESS THAN A 1/4 INCH IN DIAMETER. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND THE GROWTH I CUT OFF THE BURNING BUSHES. ARE THEY RUINED, NO. Here are pics of the destroyed plant material. If you read the tread you would see I used Felco #2 hand pruner. I use them everyday. With your lack of knowledge of this thread. I cant see how you would have comment.
