Question of the Week 03/30/19

March 30, 2019

Q: I have a large juniper that is growing into my sidewalk - can you cut it back 2 feet so it is out of the way?

 

A: Thank you for the great question!

 

The problem with dramatically pruning junipers is that the green foliage you see is only several inches thick. Woody, brown branches are what make up most of the overgrown junipers.

 

We can trim it a few inches and still have it looking nice, but if we take off more than that it will look brown and woody. To be quite honest, it will be an eyesore. If you need the sidewalk clear, we suggest pulling out the juniper and replacing it with a smaller one that will be shaped on a regular schedule to prevent it from overgrowing on the sidewalk
