Pruning Ornamental Trees and Shrubs
Purdue Cooperative Extension's Pruning Ornamental Trees and Shrubs is a 12-page booklet that explains the hows and whys of pruning, then describes the methods for pruning different types of trees and shrubs in great detail. The illustrations that accompany the descriptions are particularly useful. The Web page is in PDF format, so you can print it out and bring it right into the garden with you.
