Shrubs & Shearing - Why shearing is NOT an acceptable pruning practice for most shrubs:

  • Works against the natural form of the shrub
  • Cuts are not made at appropriate places on the stem tissue, causing decay and decline of stems
  • Causes an "eggshell" appearance of the foliage which shades out the inner portions of the shrub
  • Since most of the foliage is removed, the shrub must sprout new leaves, which is a huge energy expense
