THE benefits of annual maintenance
We recommend that you prune your Cedars once a summer for the following reasons
ENSURE THE AESTHETICS OF YOUR COURSE WITH A WELL MAINTAINED HEDGE
An annual size will give your Cedar hedge a symmetrical and neat shape. Thus, the presence of a well maintained plant barrier will give your landscaping a more harmonious appearance than if left to itself.
Get optimum control over the height and width you want
It is important to know that a cedar hedge can reach impressive proportions if left to itself. An unmaintained hedge can indeed reach a height of up to 20 meters high for 5 meters wide. Therefore, it is important to carry out an annual size in order to keep it in proportions respecting the available space of your property.
BOOSTING GROWTH AND INCREASING THE DENSITY OF CEDAR
A cedar hedge works the following way; the more you cut it, the more it grows and will be provided. An annual size will provide you with a dense and long-term cedar. Conversely, a neglected hedge will be degarnized and holes will appear after a few years without maintenance.
AVOID POSSIBLE SNOW ACCUMULATION DURING WINTER
The weight attached to a snow accumulation on your hedge may be one of the main causes of damage to it. An annual size will reduce the risk of snow accumulation as it tends to slide to the ground. In addition, the annual maintenance will avoid that your Cedars end up with long pushes that are likely to bend and break by their weight.

Give your hedge the ideal shape
A trapezoid-shaped hedge helps to capture the sun. It is important to know that, on the other hand, a wide hedge in the top and thinned downwards, it will tend to destock. Our specialists will be able to give shape to your cedars in order to optimize the penetration of brightness that is essential to its well-being.
The importance of well-cutting new growth
During a maintenance or a shape prunning, it is important to prune the new regrowths only. Otherwise, too severe trim by cutting mature branches, cedar will no longer design new regrowths.

The three types of cut
No matter what type of cut you need, our specialists will meet your needs
The cut of formation will be paramount during the first years following the planting of a cedar hedge. This is in the cutting of the new reshoots located on the sides of the hedge to stimulate the growth of the tree.
This will give the hedge a uniform width and encourage its upwards. When the hedge has reached the desired height, the size of the top reshoots will mean the start of the maintenance size.
The maintenance size will take place when the Cedar hedge has reached the desired size. This consists of trimming the sides as well as the top of the hedge in order to guarantee us a control on the cedars.
This type of trimming assures us that the tree will not take disproportionate proportions. Indeed, a hedge will tend to grow one foot in width and height and this every year. An annual maintenance size also allows the owner to minimize long-term maintenance costs.
A planing size is normally carried out as a result of the loss of control of the proportions of a cedar hedge. This cut consist of cutting down the hedge by several feet in order to bring it back to a desired height. Since this type of size is more drastic than a maintenance size, certain criteria must be respected in order not to shock the tree. As a result of the work, the top of the hedge will normally be free of foliage and take a few years to replenish new regrowths.
It is also important to mention that a planing size cannot be carried out on the side of the tree, in order to reduce its width, since this type of conifer is not able to regenerate from the “old wood”.
