Landscapers are performing an injustice to these beautiful trees.

 

Crape Myrtle Tree Trimming

I came across this article in a face book post. It describes how many landscapers are simply copying what other companies are doing and damaging these beautiful trees. Crape Myrtles are one of my favorite trees but I’ve never really liked the way many landscapers prune these trees. It not only creates ugly scars but also affects the growth pattern of the new limbs. Next time you ask your landscaper to trim your Crape Myrtles you may show him this article if he is planning on topping them.
