The Arizona Landscape Contractors’ Association (ALCA) continually updates and
makes improvements to their educational programs. Improper tree and shrub
pruning is one of the most difficult challenges to educate not only our industry but
the public at large.

ALCA has created a publication, “The First 100 Plant Pruning Schedule”, a guide for
proper pruning of 100 common plants found in the Desert Southwest.

Pruning is the intentional removal of plant parts. Pruning should only be done when
necessary and at the right time of year and use the natural growth form of the plant
as the goal. Along with photos, each page in the publication will include the bloom
period, pruning time, proper pruning techniques and helpful tips for trees, palms,
groundcovers, vines, shrubs, flowering perennials, cacti, non-cacti succulents and
grasses.
