Seasonal Suggestions - Pruning Tips
Perennials and ornamental grasses can be cut back to within a couple of inches from the ground any time during the winter months prior to new growth.
Flowering shrubs and trees need to be pruned with consideration to their developing flower buds. If the shrub or tree blooms in the spring, then prune just after the flowers fade. If the shrub or tree blooms in the summer, then prune in the winter months. By following this rule of thumb, you will optimize flowering because you will avoid cutting buds in their developmental stage.
Tree Care Tips
Who's Tree Is It?
The City of Waynesboro takes great pride in the trees that are planted on city property. Care is taken to ensure that city owned trees stay in the best possible health, but the horticulture staff cannot inspect every tree on a regular basis. It is not unusual for city personnel to be contacted by citizens who want to report possible problems, or positive comments, pertaining to a city owned tree.
If you are unsure if a tree is city owned, or would like to report possible problems with a city owned tree, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department @ 942-6735, and leave your name, address, phone number, and exact location of the tree.
**As a general rule, any tree located between a sidewalk and a city maintained street or curb and/or between a water meter and the street is owned by the city. However, the right-of-way easements change throughout the city. **
