Sorry! I didn't notice your arborist's certification on your postings. Too many folks around here, on both the homeowner AND professional level, consider the trimming of shrubs a somewhat brainless endeavor, achievable in only a few minutes per bush with any 2-cycle or electric hedge-butcher. When in essence....they'll easily create more work for themselves later in the summer by doing this!!!... Not to mention potentially shortening the lifespan of the plant itself.
