Ugh – I hate it when I plant things too close to something!

Yes, you can prune a Sky High Juniper. Keep in mind, pruning is a long-term relationship. If they aren’t too big already, you can trim the sides and top. Here’s a pruning guide from Texas A&M Extension to get you started. Doing a topiary is fun. Have you seen the ones at Longwood Gardens? Wow! One more thought, please be careful with pruners and hedge trimmers.

Thanks for writing!
