When pruning juniper hedges as in landscape maintenance, should you take the time to remove all the old debris that is inside?

It isn't necessary to remove the dead foliage in the center of the plant; it will eventually fall off on its own. When cutting your junipers back, remember that evergreen hedges such as juniper and cypress should never be trimmed below the foliage or they won't grow back. Clip only a few inches from the previous year's growth.
