    I am new to the business and I was wondering if you trim arborvitis(sp?) These are along the property line and I thought they were more like a privacy bush/tree and you just let them grow as much as you wanted to. I could always ask the customer if they wanted them trimed but I wanted to give them my opinon.

    Its preferance in my opinion. I personally like a row of arborvitaes trimmed like a hedge...other like them more natural. Just keep in mind just how big they will get if not prunued at all.
