The Arizona Landscape Contractors’ Association (ALCA) continually updates and makes improvements to their educational programs. Proper tree and shrub pruning is one of the most difficult challenges ALCA faces in educating not only the landscape 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.
