how to prune a YEW

Asked May 22, 2020, 1:50 PM EDT

I would like to prune this YEW before it gets too tall. I'd like to remove about a foot from the height. How do I do this without destroying the shape ? Is it done by just cutting at the top or is it done more selectively ?

Yews form hedges well, so you can just clip the stems at a uniform height. That will encourage the plants to fill in underneath.

Good luck.
