The Q&A Archives: Pruning Blue Atlas Cedar

Question: When is the best time to prune a weeping blue atlas cedar?

Answer: In general, these trees are not usually pruned once their initial shape has been determined during early years of staking and training. After that, a bit of pruning in the spring can help maintain the shape and size. You can remove as much as one-half the new growth that develops in the spring without stressing your cedar. Don't cut too much more than that or you'll lose the shape of the tree.
