Dec 10, Like most evergreens, arborvitae should be trimmed while it is dormant. This is roughly from about Thanksgiving to St. Patrick's Day. Many gardeners like to prune these evergreens.

This cut allows you to take out a branch without damaging the bark as much.

Sep 21, The best time to prune an arborvitae is during late spring just before new growth starts on tree, recommends the North Dakota State University Extension. Avoid cutting back beyond the green foliage as this will create permanent bare spots on the tree.

They do best with regular irrigation that allows enough time for the soil to dry out between waterings. Fertilize 3 times a year - in spring, summer, and fall - with a top quality granular fertilizer.

Plant spacing. Place an arborvitae at least 8 feet - more, if possible - from the house, drive, and anything else.

Dec 01, When pruning palms, only remove fronds that are completely brown and that hang below the 9 o'clock or 3 o'clock position. If you hire a professional, make your wishes clear by putting them in writing. Explain that you want your palms to have a rounded canopy, not a mohawk.

Plant trimming is shaping. This can be done any time of year in South Florida. Hard pruning - cutting back up to one-third to even one-half of a plant - should only be done in warm months March 15th through October 15th.

When new growth does come in, it will hide the cuts you made in the tree.

Always water well before giving a plant a hard pruning. It is a slow process that can take 3 years or longer. Thus, ANSI pruning standards for palms (ANSI ) state that no leaves with tips above the horizontal plane ( and positions on a clock face) should be removed.

In Broward County, Florida, doing so is a civil offense and can result in a fine.
