Thank you for your question for eXtension. Your question is very general and I would need specifics to provide the best answer. It is different for high vs. mid elevations, evergreens vs. deciduous, trees vs. shrubs, fruit vs. landscape, etc. Some plants do not require regular pruning at all. If we could speak by phone, that would be preferable (my typing is not the speediest). Please e-mail me at jschalau@ag.arizona.edu and we can set up an appointment to speak by phone. We also have Master Gardener volunteers that could assist you in our Prescott and Camp Verde office. Please e-mail and let me know what you'd prefer.Website: https://extension.arizona.edu/YavapaiPhone: 928-4456590 ext 224Regards,
