Their new growth will always be at the end of the branches and the leave will die close to the trunk. - Take off one-third of the prps-1 ent year's growth to keep .the plant full of leaves. Evergreens grown as hedges may be cut jnst before new growth starts, either early in (lie spring or early In the fall. Evergreens, such as pines and spruces, may be kept within bounds and bushy by pinching off the new leaders In May and in September. i Low growing evergreens, such as pfilzers and yews, may be clipped any time during the year. It is belter to do it early in the season before growth begins, to force the new growlh from the center of the plant rather than from the enrts of the limbs. NEXT: healthy.

Time to trim is after the plant has bloomed. When a tree or shrub is received from the nursery, cut oft all broken roots no matter what amount has to be sacrificed. A bruised root will Introduce disease. Take off one third of last rear's top growth. Some trees can have the ends of the brandies cut jack, others should not have the lea'der limb cul. Quick growing trees may have all lops cut back. Shrubs should have thin branches cul pul to the base. A third of all lops can be cut out, but thinning out Is better than cutting back ends. Try to equalize the amount of top with the amount of roots. Evergreens need not be trimmed at time of transplanting, because they are transplanted with all their rools Intact In rf ball of earth. It Is essential to direct the growth of shade trees. If the tree begins to grow lopsided, cut back jsome of .the limbs. If the branches are too low to the ground, cul them off.
