Caring for Trees & Shrubs

Trees, shrubs, and vines are essential elements in your landscape, adding structure, texture, and color as well as establishing focal points. Fortunately, taking care of trees, shrubs, and vines can be easy, but it does require knowing the basics, and learning insider tips will help your plants reach their full potential. All the care advice you need is here. Start with what you buy: Trees and shrubs can be bare-root, balled-and-burlapped, or container-grown. All of them will work well in a landscape, but each has different requirements. Here's what you need to know to make sure all three types will get off to a great start in your landscape. Once your trees, shrubs, and vines are established, maintaining them is key to ensuring their healthy growth. Part of that maintenance includes pruning -- but what do you prune and when? We have advice on pruning, as well as a maintenance calendar. Not sure what tool works for pruning small branches or large limbs? Turn to our guide. If you have an established tree or shrub in your landscape that's been neglected, you can give it new life with careful pruning.
