: We purchased our house last year and our yard has several trees and shrubs. For the last couple of years no one has taken care of the yard. The crepe myrtles and redtips are trees now...not bushes. (they are over 12 feet tall) How much can I trim of each? Can I cut them in half or do I only take a third? What time of the year is the best to cut them back???
The red tips are called photinia.
Here's some sites that might be helpful.
Hope these help.
