I trimmed an overgrown Winged Euonymus Hedge (Burning Bush) today. I had done it a few years ago and then the homeowner did it after that but wasn't able to reach all of it. It was to the point that even with an 8 foot step ladder and extended hedge trimmers it was tough to reach it all....close to 15 plus feet across I think. I think I'm going to have to sharpen my trimmers now, I was into finger-sized wood to get it down as far as I did. Anything further would have required a lot of hand pruning. Here are some pictures in progress and then after completed. I had already done the side before the first pictures. Note: Those are some "babies" down on the bottom left that the homeowner wants to transplant.
