Hello and Thanks for using the Ask an Expert System

Your request for information does not mention how many evergreens you have, or how large they are. Are you asking about mature evergreen trees, or shrubs? Is this a wood lot, or a landscape? Here are a couple links to Penn State publications you might find helpful.

1. Forestry with Confidence, a Guide for Woodland Owners

2. Forest Stewardship, Backyard Trees

I suggest you contact your local Penn State Extension Office for further information.
